Apple’s ‘By innovation only’ keynote is just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean the leaks and countless reports will stop. According to a fresh series of info, the Apple logo is to be present at the backside of all 2019 iPhones and it’s not going to be there just because the company felt like executing a little design change. It’s there for a reason; to help users with reverse wireless charging.
Logo to Help Users Place Qi-Enabled Devices to Allow for 2019 iPhones to Start Charging Them Wirelessly
A Bloomberg report states that when the 2019 iPhones are officially here, there will be a subtle change added in the form of the Apple logo. However, the change won’t be added to bump up the aesthetics or to show the surrounding people that you have the latest and greatest iPhone in the palm of your hand. The change is actually a clever one if it turns out to be true. Similar to wireless charging, reverse wireless charging does have some conveniences in the sense that you’ll have to accurately align the device in a specific position otherwise it won’t juice up.
The Apple logo will serve as a form of ‘guiding star’ to help users place their Qi-enabled devices like AirPods charging case or even the Apple Watch. It’s not confirmed if non-Apple products such as the Galaxy Buds will be able to charge when placed right on top of that Apple logo. What we do know is that the company is rumored to incorporate all three 2019 iPhones with bigger batteries than their predecessors. The extra capacity should not only help with additional ‘screen on’ time but provide leftover juice to top up Qi-enabled devices and accessories.
Other interesting features include improved water-resistance and durable glass to protect the 2019 iPhones from water bodies and drops, though you should keep in mind that since it’s glass and not metal, you should exercise more caution. The keynote will kick off on September 11, and if there’s anything you need to know about the iPhone 11 event, you can always keep track through our detailed roundup.
