    Hi

    I will be getting the 8 Plus and an Apple case.

    Wireless charging is a feature. To take advantage of it, will I need to remove my Apple Case?

    Thanks

    Yep! It’ll have to be an extremely thick case to stop it charging!

    I am assuming, if wireless with a case, would work for the 8, then it would also work for the X.

    I have an issue with the traditional wireless charging technique. You can never use the phone while charging.

    Or one with metal content.

    You can still plug it in as you did before. What do you want? A lightning bolt to follow you around?

    I know you can still plug it in. Just saying wireless chargers have that issue. I'm waiting for Apple to release their real wireless charging that they patented a couple of years ago. True wireless.

    This will be the next level wireless charging. But I doubt we'll see it for another couple of years. It'll be nice to sit on the couch and have the phone charge truly wirelessly.
