Wireless charging is quickly becoming a must-have for high-end smartphones. The Nokia 920, Google Nexus 4 and HTC Windows Phone 8X already offer it, and the Samsung Galaxy S IV, which debuts this month, probably will, too.
Taiwan-based tech publication Digitimes reports the iPhone 5S will have wireless charging as well. It's unclear, however, if Apple will build the capability into the phone, or require external accessories, the story said. There are third-party devices, such as the GetPowerPad pictured here, that charge the iPhone wirelessly, but Apple must build this capability into its flagship phone to keep up with its competitors.
