There has been speculation for some time that Apple’s forthcoming “iPhone X” (aka the iPhone 8) will presumably have wireless charging.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple has recently joined Wireless Power Consortium, a group of 214 companies dedicated to promoting wireless charging through its “Qi” standard.

“Apple is an active member of many standards development organizations, as both a leader and contributor.
