Which iPhones Have Wireless Charging?
Wireless Qi charging has been around since 2012 and has been incorporated into the work of 488 manufacturers throughout the world including Apple, Sony, Samsung and, of course, MAGFAST. Whilst many mobile phones boast the Qi wireless charging capability, market leaders Apple waited until 2017 to adapt their phones to utilise the revolutionary tech.
Not being able to charge through metal phone bases made of, say, aluminum, it wasn’t until the launch of the iPhone 8 with a glass back that the benefits of wireless Qi charging were discovered by Apple users.
Which iPhone can I charge wirelessly?
Requiring a glass back to the phone to make the Qi capability work, it may come as a surprise that Apple – often the leaders in product development – didn’t incorporate this until the iPhone 8 series but this may well have been a deliberate decision. There were so many other types of wireless charging technology around that, just maybe, they wanted to assess the market and see what tech they should embrace going forward. Qi dominated and is now incorporated on a vast scale globally.
The table below shows you all the iPhone models that will benefit from Qi wireless charging. You can also find out more about the most popular cell phone, including wireless charging capabilities throughout time, via our comprehensive guide.

|iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max|
|iPhone SE (2nd gen)|
|iPhone 12 and 12 mini|
|iPhone 13 and 13 mini|
|iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max|
With it now being incorporated into every model since the iPhone 8, it is safe to assume that it will also be used in future models that Apple decides to release.
