It’s the second week of September and for pretty much everyone interested in tech, even if they don’t like Apple products, it’s time for the Apple Keynote and the impending release of new products.
Expect iPhones, except iPads, expect Apple TV, expect Apple Watch – except everything, but do not assume it will happen. However, in the days building up to launch, we’ve seen plenty of leaks.
Whether you use Apple products or not, it’s difficult to get away from the event over in America. The first thing to note is that this Keynote is taking place in Apple’s brand new Steve Jobs Theater in Los Angeles. Nice touch if we’re honest.
What To Expect
So to the products in question – it seems from 9to5Mac’s report and Twitter users, that there will be THREE iPhones released. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, as well as an ‘anniversary’ product to celebrate over a decade of the iPhone, with the iPhone X.
Now this information comes from coding that has been leaked over the weekend leading up to the keynote, and we can see all three of these names mentioned. It’s not a surprise really, but it’s what else that was made almost public. Face ID, animated emojis (face recognition will also convert the face you pull into the emoji you intend!) and new wallpapers. Nothing special we would say.
However tell that to this guy…Mazen Kourouche. The first in line in Sydney, queuing up since Monday 11th September. Commitment.
He clearly loves his Apple products, and is pretty excited – but we’d be really excited for, and think is long overdue, is wireless charging with these devices. Samsung is already there and has been for a while.
A radical overhaul for the iPhone – which we think may include a full OLED screen with no bezel – needs to have what we’re desperate for – wireless charging!
The tech is here, the people demand it, and it’s all around you. Wireless charging in coffee shops, bars and restaurants, at airports – it is everywhere. Just not in an iPhone. Yet. We hope.
With Qi Charging, which is the standard almost around the world, we’d be surprised if Apple decides to go down a similar route as it did with the original Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch uses a tweaked version of Qi meaning it cannot be used with a standard Qi charger – and it may decide to do that once more to cash in with its own chargers and licences for their tech to third-parties. However, if it wants to join in the party, the hope is Apple decide instead to go with the global standard.
If it does, then why not check out the soundmaster UR411SI Bluetooth FM / DAB Clock Radio with Wireless Qi Charging. It’s an incredible looking unit and will solve all your needs to charge and then play audio at the same time via Bluetooth.
The UR411SI is perfect for bedside tables or study spaces, and if – just if – Apple do not release their own charger, it could be a wonderful addition in your home with your brand new Apple iPhone.
Don’t forget if your mobile already allows for wireless charging through Qi technology, then why not get one today!
