I havent seen any mentionin the reviews, does the S3 support Qi charging?
Yes it does, kinda thought that them showing it charge on the Qi Airmat was obvious.
I wouldn't be so sure that just because it'll charge on the Airmat means it'll charge on other Qi chargers. More likely IMHO that the Airmat supports the AW3 as well as Qi devices.
We shall find out on Friday when someone pops their AW3 onto a Qi pad.
That would be dumb to support on iPhone 8 and announce AW3 wireless charging with a * denoting only for airmat
I agree, the S0, S1 and S2 don't charge on any old Qi mat...
It'd be dumb to announce the AW3 along side two phone models which support Qi charging yet somehow not put that compatibility on the AW3's page.
It'd be great if it does work. I've not seen anything suggesting it does. Have any of the reviews mentioned it? I've skimmed a couple but not read any in depth.
And series 3 will be only one to work on apples airpower mat.
I'm gonna put my money on "no Qi". They would have said so at the announcement and it would be all over the product page on their site.
The absence is telling.
Or it's there, but is being restricted with software locks currently. Then poof, magically it works, conveniently when the AirPower Mat becomes for sale.
It doesn’t support Qi charging.
It currently uses a proprietary version of inductive charging.
The Airpower mat will use a slightly altered version of Qi which will mean it also works with the series 3 Apple Watch (not below) and the revised Airpods case and iPhone 8 and X. Apple said they will be shairing these changes with the Qi standards consortium so hopefully other Qi chargers can build this into their future products.
Any update from those who have received theirs?
News reports this morning shows it works on some chargers, no rhyme or reason to which work though.
Saw a video on youtube that said it worked on a Qi mat without MFI. Seems to be really hit or miss on what it works and what doesn't.
