Apple Watch Series 5 might charge wirelessly with the iPhone XI


According to rumors, the next Apple Watch Series 5 might be able to charge wirelessly by utilizing the power of a connected iPhone.

The current iPhone can already be charged on a charging mat, however, according to MacOtakara’s information which is also backed by industry analyst Ming-Chi, Apple Watch Series 5 might be able to get charged by relying solely on a new handset.

The recently release Apple AirPods 2 with a Qi-compatible Wireless Charging Case will too benefit from the power transmitting iPhone. It seems as if the next iPhone is going to mimic the Apple AirPower charging mat first unveiled back in 2017 but flopped recently.

To charge the phone with a smartphone is not a new innovation, Samsung has already done that with its newly launched flagship handset.

In spite of these rumors and whispers, we are still unsure if the iPhone maker company’s upcoming devices will have such a feature. Apple will be releasing its next iPhone XI this fall, which is traditionally the highlight of Apple’s year.
