Not only does it look sleeker but according to Forbes.com there will be 3 new iPHONE'S this year AND the iPHONE 8 will have wireless charging...
"The source is none other than KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo (famously dubbed “the best Apple AAPL +0.28% analyst on the planet”). In a new report obtained by 9to5Mac, Kuo says Apple will finally introduce wireless charging across its upcoming iPhone ranges. This will double up with fast wired charging, which I exclusively revealed last month.
Furthermore Kuo reiterated that there will be three new iPhones in 2017: two incremental ‘iPhone 7S’ upgrades and an all new OLED iPhone 8 / iPhone X introduced to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone."
The downside to wireless charging? A major increase in price. We shall soon see!
