One of the most anticipated features of the new iPhone X is its ability to charge wirelessly. However, there are many solutions for users with previous iterations of the iPhone who want to take advantage of the freedom and convenience of wireless charging. With the right accessories, you can bring your smartphone setup completely up to date with the current generation in terms of wireless capabilities. Let’s take a look at some of the best solutions for iPhones that came to us before the iPhone X and its native solution.
