A spotlight on Apple's wireless charging


There’s a new way to charge iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus and iPhone X—wireless charging.

iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus feature integrated wireless charging that allows for an easy and intuitive charging experience. You can simply set the phone on a charging mat removing the need to spend time connecting and disconnecting charging cables.


The latest iPhone models work with wireless chargers commonly found in hotels, cafes, airports, and cars. So it’s easy for you to find a place to charge when you're away from home. And at home, you can use the mophie wireless charging base and the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad—two Qi-certified chargers designed for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus and iPhone X, which charge an iPhone with the latest version of iOS at rates up to 7.5 watts.

How it works

With an all-new design, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus have a glass back that works with Qi-certified chargers that are available as accessories and in cars, cafes, hotels, airports, and furniture. Qi is an open, universal charging standard created by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC).

  • Wireless charging uses magnetic induction to charge your iPhone. Don't place anything between your iPhone and the charger. Magnetic mounts, magnetic cases, or other objects between your iPhone and the charger might reduce performance or damage magnetic strips or RFID chips like those found in some credit cards, security badges, passports, and key fobs. If your case holds any of these sensitive items, remove them before charging or make sure that they aren’t between the back of your iPhone and the charger.

  • If your iPhone isn't charging or is charging slowly and your iPhone has a thick case, metal case, or battery case, try removing the case.

  • If your iPhone vibrates—when it gets a notification, for example—your iPhone might shift position. This can cause the charging mat to stop providing power to your iPhone. If this happens often, consider turning off vibration, turning on Do Not Disturb, or using a case to prevent movement.

  • Depending on the charging mat you have, you might hear faint noises while your iPhone charges.

  • Your iPhone might get slightly warmer while it charges. To extend the lifespan of your battery, if the battery gets too warm, software might limit charging above 80 percent. Your iPhone will charge again when the temperature drops. Try moving your iPhone and charger to a cooler location.

  • Your iPhone won't charge wirelessly when connected to USB. If your iPhone is connected to your computer with USB, or if it's connected to a USB power adapter, your iPhone will charge using the USB connection.
