The Chinese microblogging platform, Weibo, seems to be a source of iPhone 8 leaks recently. We just posted about a leaked wireless charging coil supposedly for the iPhone 8 coming from the same place. Now, another image has popped up which strengthens the rumors regarding wireless charging.
iPhone 8 Wireless Charging Leak
Zealer, a tech website, has posted on Weibo what they claim to be the wireless charging pad circuitry. The picture shows a black PCB and a few charging kits in a plastic tray. This looks quite different compared to the leak with the green PCB. Although, it is very difficult to confirm whether this is for the iPhone 8 or not.
It was also mentioned in a different setting that wireless charging will only work by purchasing another accessory. Wireless charging can’t be used until that accessory is bought. It might not even be available yet during launch this September but will most likely be available later this year instead.
