Mophie brings wireless charging to iPhones with new cases
For all its innovation and design prowess, Apple, like most smartphone makers, has been slow to pick up on the whole wireless charging thing, much to the consternation of iPhone users.
But hope for those who dream of a cordless charging future has arrived in the form of the new Mophie Juice Pack battery cases.
The accessories are designed for use with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 6S Plus, and support all the main wireless charging standards, including Qi and Powermat.
What’s more, the new cases also come with built-in magnets, allowing them to stay attached to charging bases and Mophie’s new wireless charging car vent and desktop mounts.

The new cases, versions of which can already be bought for the Samsung Galaxy series, also include a 1,560 mAh battery in the iPhone 6 and 6S versions, and a 2,420 mAh battery in the iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus versions.
That means you’ll get around 50% extra charge capacity for your iPhone, on top of the wireless charging function.
Juice Packs will come bundled with a wireless charging base for $100, which is the same price as Apple’s Smart Battery Case.
Mophie also intends to include wireless charging capabilities in every new Juice Pack it produces in the future, as part of its ‘Charge Force’ brand.
