The iPhone 8 will likely have wireless charging — but that could make it prone to overheating (AAPL)
All three iPhones expected to launch later this year will have wireless charging, according to a new forecast by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple is expected to release three new iPhones next fall — one premium model with a better screen using “OLED” technology, and two more iterative improvements to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
All three will have glass casing and wireless charging, according to Kuo’s note seen by Business Insider.
Apple may be concerned that the new iPhones may overheat more than older phones, according to the research. Glass casing and wireless charging are “unfavorable to thermal system operation,” says Kuo.
