Adding further credence to Apple’s inductive charging roadmap are the consistent leaks from Asian sources that the next iPhone will feature glass casing.
The efficacy of RF wireless charging (WATT’s technology) is not affected by aluminum or plastic cases.
One reason Samsung adopted plastic material for its cases is to improve the performance of wireless charging.
Inductive charging does not penetrate aluminum cases effectively, which is the material for the current iPhone casing.
A major misperception among tech blogs and WATT investors is that Apple’s switch to a glass casing somehow confirms the inclusion of WATT’s charging technology.
