iPhone 8 may use Smart Connector for wireless charging and building virtual reality

There is a high probability that a rumor that turns out to be false for a certain version of the iPhone will pop up

before the next release.

You must remember many posts aboutusing the Smart Connector (debuted with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro) on the iPhone. It was assumed that it will be used for wireless charging. These rumors were built around the expected disappearance of the 3.5mm headphone jack, but, as we all know now, only one of these assumptions was correct.

And now, while waiting for the iPhone 8, TheVerifier said that Apple will use the Smart Connector in its future flagship - among other things, to implement wireless charging. Since there is already an example of such a charge organization in the face of the Apple Watch, this is not so difficult to believe.

Also, according to The Verifier, SmartConnector will be used for accessories related to augmented and virtual realities. Unfortunately, the details remain a secret: what they can look like and what these devices can do is now unknown.

It is also alleged that future Apple TV and AirPlay models will be somehow integrated into Apple's virtual and augmented reality technologies, but, again, without any details.

Previously, information aboutalleged features of future versions of iOS, including group calls in FaceTime, predicted for iOS 11. All this has not yet been officially confirmed, but given how much we hear about wireless charging in the iPhone 8, this situation is at least likely.
