Apple: Wireless charging on iPad could be next year

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

It may be next year that Apple may launch an iPad Pro with wireless charging capability. According to Mark Gurman of Blomberg, the tech giant is currently focusing efforts on developing a new iPad Pro and a new iPad mini.

Apparently, Apple will replace the tablet Pro’s aluminum casing with a glass back, similar to newer iPhones, in part to allow wireless charging. As you recall, the company switched from glass to aluminum and then back to glass again. The last change took place at the launch of the iPhone 8.

Meanwhile, Apple is planning to outfit the new iPad mini with narrower bezels and remove the home button. The smaller tablet may appear to be available later this year, which in this case will be the first makeover of the model in six years. Gurman also shared that Apple is testing a MagSafe system for the Pro.

In addition, the company is exploring adding wireless reverse charging features to the tablet Pro, which will allow the user to use its power to charge other devices. Apple has been known to have been working on the technology for years, and the feature is rumored to be available for both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12.

Aside from the new Pro and mini, Gurman said the company is also developing a slimmer iPad for students that could be available this year. The tech giant announced AirPower, which can power an iPhone, Apple Watch and Airpods at the same time, in 2017.

However, it ended up canceling the project almost two years later because it failed to resolve considerable heating and energy problems. Finally, Apple is investigating alternative wireless charging methods that will allow charging over longer distances than an inductive connection can provide.
