With the advent of the iPhone X and iPhone 8 series, Apple finally brought the long-awaited wireless charging capabilities to iPhone users. Although the iPhones finally capable of the wireless charging feature, but we must have to say that this function still has its own flaws.

Once we plan to use this feature, we still need to consider a number of things, one of which involves the credit card. As Apple confirmed, such a behavior could potentially damage credit cards if they were placed between the glass back of the iPhone and the charging plate. This covers both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X, and this warning should apply as well Nearly all other smartphones that support wireless charging.


We all know that there is some iPhone case with a wallet phone case design style, and the wallet case is very popular among customers, after all, it can be make it extremely convenient to always have credit cards wherever you go without the need for a wallet. But the company says the following in the FAQ page covering that wallet case should be removed during wireless charging:

Wireless charging uses magnetic induction to charge your iPhone. Don't place anything between your iPhone and the charger. Magnetic mounts, magnetic cases, or other objects between your iPhone and the charger might reduce performance or damage magnetic strips or RFID chips like those found in some credit cards, security badges, passports, and key fobs. If your case holds any of these sensitive items, remove them before charging or make sure that they aren’t between the back of your iPhone and the charger.

As we mentioned earlier, although the current iPhone wireless charging solution is not exactly ideal, but the Cupertino firm petty serious on the technology. There is no doubt that Apple will certainly redouble its efforts to break through the obstacles caused by more wireless charging.
