Apple iPhone 12 might support reverse wireless charging for accessories

Last year, it was reported that Apple will be introducing reverse wireless charging on iPhone 11 but the feature was allegedly removed in the final version. Now, it seems that the company has added support for such a feature in the iPhone 12 models.

The FCC filings for the Apple iPhone 12 shows that this year’s devices have support for bilateral wireless charging, reveals Jeremy Horwitz in a tweet. It says that the new Apple smartphone works with regular Qi chargers and also with a new “charging function at 360 kHz” that can recharge accessories.

So far, Apple has not officially announced anything related to this and the feature has also been disabled on the iPhone 12. Some reports indicate that the company might be holding on to the feature for the rumored AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2 TWS earphones.

This discovery suggests that Apple has continued its work on the charging feature and has integrated the functionality into its MagSafe protocol. While reverse wireless charging could be activated through a software update, it remains to be seen if Apple intends to do so.

Recently, it was reported that the Cupertino giant is working on two new models — the third-generation entry-level AirPods and the second version of the AirPods Pro earbuds, joining the list of upcoming audio products like HomePod mini and over-ear headphone.
