Two-Way Wireless Charging
One of the features that was widely expected to make an appearance on this year’s iPhone lineup was two-way wireless charging, also known as bilateral charging. Essentially, it would have allowed users to charge their Apple Watches or AirPods case on the back of their handsets.
Until this week, it seemed like one of the surest bets for an iPhone release relatively light on major features. But, of course, two-way wireless charging did not make an appearance this year. Its absence was also preceded by rumors from oft-accurate sources Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo that the feature had been canceled.
