To this day, we are lucky that Apple did eventually support wireless charging. This technology has been made for phones that support it. It works by transferring energy from a charger to a receiver in the back of a phone through a electromagnetic induction. The charger uses an induction coil to create an alternating electromagnetic field, which the receiver coil in the smartphone converts back into electricity to then be fed right into the battery itself.
The wireless charger and smartphone have to be in close proximity to each other and correctly aligned over the top of each other. Though a set orientation is normally not really necessary. Rechargeable tooth brushes and other bathroom accessories have used inductive charging since the 1990’s.
