The iPhone 6 may feature a new charging feature
According to The Wall Street Journal, the iPhone 5 is becoming more and more like the iPhone 3GS—that is, a minor update (looking similar to the current iPhone 4), rather than a major redesign, becoming more thinner, featuring an upgraded 8 megapixel camera as well as a new dual-core chip.
We might, however, see a major revamp in design with the iPhone 6 next year. One source said that Apple has been experimenting with a new way of charging the phone. With Apple’s plan to eliminate the USB cable with the upcoming iPhone to sync your phone with your computer, this seems like the more logical plan on an upgrade. But how will they do it?
Techno Buffalo have come up with one theory featuring the Palm Pre Touchstone dock (picture right), which shows that charging can be done without the need for a cable. One obstacle that Techno Buffalo have come up with is the notion of portable charging, i.e. charging in the car. Apple not only needs to find a way to charge without the use of a cable, but also find out a way so that it’s portable.
What do you think? Is this the future for Apple as well as other phones?
