iPhone 8 to Feature Glass Casing to Support Wireless Charging

According to the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will switch to a glass casing for the next generation iPhone 8 in order to support wireless charging. 

According to Kuo, the transition from metal to glass casing is key if Apple is to introduce iPhone 8 witha wireless charging feature in the 2017. The entire line-up of 2017 iPhones will purportedly get an all-glass case and Pegatron will supply the wireless charger, says Kuo. The all-glass case will reportedly avoid issues with wireless frequency tolerances for metal alloys that can limit charging speeds. Along with that, Jonathan Ive has apparently wanted to introduce an iPhone that looks like a single sheet of glass for several years.

We believe one of the reasons why new iPhones will switch from metal casing to glass casing is to support wireless charging. In order to ensure a superior performance, we believe it is most appropriate for EMS suppliers to develop and make the wireless charger because then a comprehensive test can be conducted. As Hon Hai needs to deploy most resources to develop and produce OLED iPhone, we expect Pegatron will be the exclusive supplier of the wireless charger.

It’s unclear if the wireless charger will come up with the new iPhones or it may come in separate purchase like current Airpods.
