LONDON – Apple’s new iPhone 12 series was launched earlier this month, and at the launch, the company announced the phones with a number of new features and improved specifications. But such is the nature of Apple launch events that even after two weeks of the launch, we are still discovering new things about the new Apple iPhones.
The latest information comes courtesy of an FCC filing discovered by VentureBeat which claims the 2020 iPhones actually support a hidden feature which is a reverse wireless charging function that will be enabled for at least one future Apple accessory that is tipped to be the new AirPods Pro.
As shown by the FCC filing, in addition to being able to be charged by a desktop WPT charger, the iPhone series also support a WPT charging function at 360 kHz that can charge accessories. However, Apple has for now revealed any supported accessory that can take advantage of this feature, with currently the only accessory that can be charged by the iPhone 12 is a potential apple accessory in the future.
