Well-known leak author Sonny Dixon, citing “reliable sources,” wrote on his Twitter that the iPhone 11 , iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are equipped with hardware for reversing wireless charging, but Apple has disabled this feature from the software side.
Prior to Apple’s presentation, many insiders agreed that one of the key innovations in the iPhone 11 will be reversible wireless charging: users will be able to charge AirPods cases and even other smartphones from the novelty case.
Dixon did not specify why Apple had disabled the feature, but authoritative analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said before the presentation that the company had made a decision because of “inconsistent charging performance requirements.” This was confirmed by Bloomberg journalist Mark Gourmet.
The start of sales of the iPhone 11 in the countries of the “first wave”, which in 2019 includes Russia, is scheduled for September 20. In the near future, an analysis of the case and the insides of new products by iFixit specialists should appear, as happened with previous Apple smartphones.
