Earlier this year, Digitimes reported that Apple would add wireless charging to the iPhone by the end of 2013. Citing anonymous sources, the often wrong but always prolific source of Apple rumors said the next-gen iPhone would likely use wireless charging technology developed internally by Apple.
Tech bloggers immediately shot down the report. 9to5Mac, for instance, called the news "unlikely," saying it would require significant design changes to the iPhone's trademark aluminum shell. And as InformationWeek's Eric Zeman pointed out recently, Apple is unlikely to add the feature to the iPhone until one of three competing wireless charging technologies, each backed by a different consortium -- the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) -- is declared the industry standard.
