Wireless charging has come a long way. This fall, Apple is releasing the iPhone 15 series, which will have a new feature: 15W wireless fast charging. This new lineup will use the Qi2 wireless charging protocol, which will offer many benefits and cost savings for consumers and accessory brands.
How Wireless Charging Has Evolved:
Wireless charging first became available with the iPhone 8. Since then, Apple has upgraded the charging power to 15W and introduced MagSafe magnetism for wireless charging with the iPhone 12, 13, and 14 series. This has made wireless charging more convenient and efficient.
What Is the Qi2 Wireless Charging Protocol?
Qi2 is an upgraded version of the Qi wireless charging protocol. It has new capabilities, including magnetic wireless charging, which makes it compatible with more devices like cell phones, TWS Bluetooth headsets, and tablets.
Benefits of the Qi2 Protocol:
One benefit of the Qi2 protocol is that accessory brands no longer have to invest in Apple’s expensive “MFM” certified components for magnetic wireless charging. This will reduce the cost of peripheral charging accessories for consumers.
A Promising Future:
The Qi2 wireless charging protocol represents a promising future for wireless charging technology. With the iPhone 15 series, consumers can look forward to a more efficient and accessible charging experience. Ultimately, wireless charging will become an affordable feature for everyone.
