APPLE’S latest iPhone is still a few months away, but rumours about the gadget’s high-tech features are already trickling in.
According to the latest whispers, the iPhone 11 will come with a handy tool that lets you wirelessly charge your mate’s gadget on the fly.

It would essentially mean your phone acts as a portable wireless charger that can heroically sacrifice some of its battery power to give your pal a bit more juice.
All you’ll need to do is place your friend’s phone on the back of your gadget.
The prediction was made by reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Known as reverse wireless charging, the tool featured in Huawei’s feature-packed Mate 20 Pro smartphone, which hit shelves in November.

It’s also expected to be one of the big selling points of Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineup, which launches on Wednesday.
On the Mate 20 Pro, reverse wireless charging was a little disappointing – it takes an hour to pump up a second phone’s battery just 10%, draining a third of your own juice in the process.
But that’s not to say Apple’s version will follow suit, as the California tech titan has had more time to get the tech just right.

In a letter to investors, Ming-Chi said the firm’s followup to the AirPods, aptly named AirPods 2, are also due for release this year.
They’re rumoured to come with wireless charging capabilities, meaning the iPhone 11 could charge your earphones on the fly.
Ming-Chi also believes that a 16-inch MacBook Pro and official Apple 6K monitor are on the way in 2019.
