6 Qi Wireless Charging
For a period of time last year, it seemed that Apple would forego Qi wireless charging in favor of its own tech. A technology that, at the time, was rumored to support long-distance charging. The 2017 iPhone lineup disproved that, since they adhere to the Qi standard.
This was the right move for Apple to make. As an open standard, Qi has the potential for democratizing wireless charging everywhere. But like the other items on this list, Qi wireless charging was a feature first adopted by Android devices.
