Wireless charging is something that had hit the world of technology a few years back. A number of smartphone developers have already implemented this new technology to their new smartphones. However, Apple despite being a leading smartphone manufacturer is yet to implement the wireless charging technology in any of their devices. However, after the launch of the iOS 11 Beta, it seems that Apple has hinted at introducing this incredible feature in their upcoming devices including the iPhone 8.
It has been reported that a new sound file has been spotted by one of the developers while working on the iOS 11 Beta which has been released a few weeks back. The sound file reads like this – ‘engage_power.caf’. It is supposed that the sound is introduced as a part of the iOS 11 features that will indicate that wireless charging has been initiated.
This is because of the fact that this file which has been discovered by the developer while working on the iOS 11 Beta is completely different from the ‘connect_power.caf’. This one is the existing sound file that notifies a user while the smartphone from Apple is connected to a Lightning cable. So the new sound file which has been spotted is definitely a different one which has further boosted the chances of wireless charging getting introduced as another iOS 11 feature in most of the devices which are expected to run on this new one.
However, there are enough chances that the sound files might not be put to use eventually when Apple iPhone 8 or any other device comes out. And it can be backed up by the fact that there are a number of similar sound files which were spotted in iOS 10 Beta as well but were not eventually put to use. So a repeat of the previous situation cannot be ruled out at all.
So we need to wait for Apple to launch the iPhone 8 or the other devices in order to get an idea of how the iOS 11 features are going to shape up. Also, we might get some idea of the entire situation when iOS 11 Beta 3 gets released in the coming days. And it seems that Apple has a lot of things in store for its users.
