Apple may be getting serious about wireless charging, selecting partners?
Even though Apple has been reluctant to jump on certain bandwagons like NFC or Wireless charging, once you notice the lack of success behind both these technologies, you get to understand why. Neither of these services has gained much traction on giant platforms like Android, so it’s clear that Apple wanted to figure things out before investing. For the first time in years we get to hear Apple having a change of heart, but today we get some serious hints as to some progress in the matter of wireless charging.
Reports all the way from China have Apple already looking for coil manufacturers to build its wireless technology module for the iWatch. The company being chosen is apparently Luxshare, and even though its not providing specifics as to “the product” that its working on, or its final relationship with Apple, the rumors point to this being for a wearable, so it’s clearly about a product that doesn’t yet exist.
With reports that Apple might launch Healthbook at WWDC 2014 next week, and with a wearable being needed for any health platform to work, we wonder if Apple is really going to launch the iWatch at the event or not.
