Wireless charging poses a threat to the iPhone X
Wireless charging for the iPhone X and iPhone 8 results in more battery wear than charging through the cable, ZDNet writes.
The author of the publication Adrian Kingsley-Hughes noted that for half a year his iPhone has passed 135 full cycles of charging. Six months ago, Hughes started using a wireless charger, and as he claims, he now has to constantly charge the smartphone.
Hughes does not elaborate on which model in question - the iPhone X or 8 - but notes that the battery of his previous iPhone 6 Plus after 800 charging cycles still has 80 percent of the original capacity.
As Mashable writes, Android phone users also experienced significant battery wear when using wireless charging.
In late 2017, Apple admitted that it deliberately understated the performance of smartphones with an old battery. The corporation promised users to reimburse the costs of replacing the iPhone's batteries.
