From Apple's favorite wireless chargers to solutions to the lack of a headphone jack on the iPhone 8 and even a slew of adapters. For a company that's always quick to brag about its latest and greatest product, the omission is telling in itself.
However, there is no doubting that Apple has the ability, with its tight integration of software and hardware and comparative ease of use, to popularise a technology more than any other manufacturer.
The release of the new suite of iPhones have prompted the release of accessories for the new devices. Many of them will be spending nearly Rs 1 lakh on the iPhone X and yet won't be able to use one of the highlighted features of the phone until they don't spend an additional Rs 7,000 on buying a charger and cable.
The feature is available in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X unveiled this week by Apple.
"The Apple 29W USB-C Power Adapter offers fast, efficient charging at home, in the office or on the go".
Apple's iPhone 8, which has a 4.7-inch LCD screen, starts at $699, while the iPhone 8 Plus, which has a 5.5-inch LCD screen, starts at $799.
The company will also has a wireless compatible mophie battery case, which naturally can also be charged on its new wireless charging base, something that allows mophie to cover all case bases. But it will open up new possibilities and perhaps make life more convenient.
Do I need to use wireless charging? This is a big complaint among Apple aficionados who miss the 3.5mm audio jack.
The accusation made against Apple over the past few years is that many of the innovations it has introduced - fingerprint scanners, Near Field Communication (NFC), etc. - have already been pioneered by its rivals. LG's G6 and Motorola's Moto Z, Z Play, Z2 Force and Z2 Play all support wireless charging, too (the Motorola devices via moto mod). Belkin will be facing competition from Mophie, who is also creating a similar charging pad for the new iPhone devices.
How is wireless charging useful? "Great features solve problems that consumers know they have and the new iPhone just isn't doing that", explains Rothman.
