HOW TO USE WIRELESS CHARGING WITH YOUR APPLE iPHONE

The above iPhone handsets from 2017 onwards are all compatible with Qi wireless chargers such as those found in public spaces and in vehicles, as well as the complete Aircharge range. When using these models, simply place the handset on a Qi wireless charger to start charging. For older models, an accessory is required to utilise a wireless charger, such as an Aircharge MFi iPhone case. Once the case is installed, the iPhone can be placed on a wireless charging pad to initiate charge.

In Aircharge public spaces, owners of non-Qi models can also make use of wireless charging technology through the use of the Aircharge Orb, the world’s first and only MFi Certified multihead adaptor. Simply plug the Lightning connector into the port and place the orb on the Aircharge surface charger to charge. Alternatively, accessories such as the Aircharge keyring or MFi Lightning receiver can be plugged into the iPhone and placed on a wireless charger to transfer charge to the handset.
