The iPhone 8 is rumored to come with wireless charging technology, which could include a standalone charging accessory. However, Apple blogger John Gruber said the accessory might not launch September with the iPhone. Gruber said he heard the accessory will be sold separately and will not come included with the smartphone and that it would be released when iOS 11.1 launches. "I've heard that inductive charging will (a) be sold separately, and (b) might be late, waiting for iOS 11.1 (a la Portrait mode last year)," said Gruber in a tweet picked up by MacRumors. The tweet comes after KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a research note recently the upcoming iPhone 8, iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus will feature glass bodies for WPC-standard (Wireless Power Consortium) wireless charging functionality.
