The iPhone XI May Borrow Samsung's Reverse Charging Feature & Have A Larger Battery

It seems like Apple may finally bring a feature from the Galaxy S10+ and Huawei Mate 20 Pro, now that AirPower has been cancelled by the company.

The two smartphones currently offer reverse wireless charging that charge other devices on the go. It works with devices that support wireless charging such as smartphones and now true wireless earbuds.

The Galaxy Earbuds can be charged by the Galaxy S10 using wireless charging technology and now Apple has also introduced a wireless charging case for the AirPods.

In order to complement the new AirPods wireless charging case, it seems like 2019 iPhones will be able to do the same. According to the renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will have the same feature enabled for its latest device and will sport a bigger battery too. 

This will enable the iPhone to wirelessly charge the AirPods and even the App Watch without ever having the need for a wired charger. In order to charge these devices, iPhones will have to increase the battery capacity so that it has enough juice to wirelessly charge other devices. 

Kup predicts that the 5.8” iPhone's battery would increase from 20 to 25%. The larger 6.5” model is expected to have its battery size increased from 0 to 15%, and the 6.1” variant would increase its size from 0 to 5%.

Currently, the iPhone XS features a 2,658mAh battery while the larger iPhone XS Max has a 3,175 mAh battery. The cheaper iPhone XR has a battery size of 2,942 mAh which is currently not enough to support bilateral wireless charging.
