Many of us would be happy with our wired charger but Apple has changed our way charging in its new breed of iPhones by providing wireless charging. Now we can put smartphone on pad for charging, without worrying about accidentally unplugging or USB cable fixes.
How wireless charging works?
Wireless pad uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy from pad to smartphone. Which use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.
Wireless charging development is in initial state it supports charging for one device at a time and available for smartphones only. As technology improves wireless charging pad will be available for all devices which can charge more than one devices too.
