Can I charge my smartphone wirelessly?
ATrust Apple to get people excited about a technology that’s been around ages. The Qi charging circuit in the iPhone X isn’t a new thing, but Guru’s bundle of ruined charging cords is testament to its usefulness.
Short answer: yes. If your phone has Qi charging built in, you just need a charging pad – Anker does one for around $45. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to add it on. On iPhones, tuck the ribbon-cabled iQi Mobile Qi Receiver ($50) into a suitable case (or, indeed, buy iQi’s Qiintegrated case). Similar receivers are available for Android.
