I always use the cable but I have the iphone 7 so I have no choice. I also have the note 8 so I'm wondering if this is true for Samsung as well. To be safe I'll use a cable. It charges faster with the cable anyway.
Not giving up my wireless charging.
The article uses a lot of words but doesn't say anything meaningful.
That is kind of the way it struck me. The fact that charge cycles were not mentioned though makes it pretty misleading. Clickbait.
Didn't read the ZDNet version but did come across Tech Republic's take: they say that the issue was that when wired the phone skipped the battery and used the power delivered from the charger at all times, whereas when wireless it was running off the battery all the time so would eat into the battery cycles as it continuously topped up the battery.
It sounds plausible - but then again I'm no expert so sounding plausible and it being truthful may be oceans apart.
pure rubbish there are no facts to back this up
wireless charging is all I use for my iPhone X. never used a cable to charge. As somebody who is on an annual upgrade anyway where I get a new phone every year the battery will never go down that much in a year anyway
iPhones don’t have the capability to run directly off the changer. All power runs through the battery, whether wired or wireless.
I believe ^^^^this^^^^ to be true.
Pretty simple. In December 31, 2018. I’m just gonna to replace my 13 month old iPhone 8 Plus battery for $29 at Apple store.
That’s how solve my battery damaged by wireless charging problem.
No way the phone can run off of the charger. If that were true you wouldn't have to wait for the battery to charge up when the battery is dead. It's always running off of the battery. The article is pure speculation and BS.
So many wrong assumptions made in that zdnet article. But hey, everything on the internet is pure truth.
Yep! While the phone displays 100% it will cycle the top 5% (100% - 95% over and over). This is why you can leave your phone plugged in yet it will consume cycles - plug a Macbook into the wall and it will consume 0 charge cycles because it runs off of the power supply.
My iPhone, however, even if it spends 24/7 plugged in, will consume cycles because it uses the battery 100% of the time.
My Macbook Air 11 (2015) has like 100 cycles because it spends a lot of time plugged in.
Exactly. Article is bogus.
It's sad... this article has resulted in other articles: Attention iPhone owners, WIRELESS CHARGING IS BAD FOR YOU! . (sarcasm for those not sure).
“Rumor dispelled on Macrumors” should be the next news headline for their click bait editorial....and refer them to here.
