Apple is rumored to be releasing a wireless-charging version of iPhone as early as 2017, with the development of a new wireless charging technology. Sources have revealed that Apple is working on creating technologies that would allow both the iPhones and iPads to be charged using the new wireless technology.

According to the reports, iPhone 7 will be coming out without the 3.5mm headphone jack and iPhone 7s will no longer require a power charging cord. As for the rumors, the wireless technology will not be dependent on a charging pad or mat.

The new technology will allow the devices to charge faster and further away from the power source combating the earlier technical challenges. Other features to be included in the iPhone7 include a thinner and lighter design, revised screen size and resolution, home button being replaced by a Touch ID fingerprint reader in the display and a possible increase in storage.
