iPhones Might Go Fully Wireless in 2021

Apple might have some wild things planned for its upcoming generations of iPhones. Although we aren’t expecting any major iPhone upgrades in 2020 apart from the usual iterative changes, the company could make some major changes in 2021.

According to a new report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, one of Apple’s 2021 iPhones could be fully wireless(via MacRumors)

And yes, that means the company will be getting rid of the charging port, and fully rely on wireless charging instead. The idea behind that is pretty wild and definitely requires–as some Apple execs would say–a lot of courage. People are expecting Apple to make the switch to Type-C on the iPhone, but it looks like the company could be fully skipping Type-C and move completely to wireless on the highest-end iPhone in 2021.

That would make some sort of sense if Apple had launched the AirPower, but that obviously didn’t happen. So if Apple does go ahead and remove the charging port from the highest-end iPhone in 2021, the company will have to offer some sort of wireless charger out-of-the-box.

Kuo also says that Apple is still expected to launch the low-end iPhone SE2 sometime in early 2020, with the company following up with the iPhone SE2 Plus in early 2021.
