Can the iPhone X be charged wirelessly

iPhone won't charge wirelessly: here's how to fix it


iPhone compatible wireless charging

As mentioned earlier, some iPhones wireless charging isn't really like that. Yes, it is true that cables do not intervene directly in the process as they are charged by induction through their rear part on the surface of a base. However, this element requires a cable connected to electricity to provide the load.

The iPhones that are compatible with this charge are the following:

  • iPhone 8.
  • iPhone 8 Plus.
  • iPhone X.
  • iPhone XS.
  • iPhone XS max.
  • iPhone XR.
  • iPhone 11.
  • iPhone 11 Pro.
  • iPhone 11 Pro max.
  • iPhone SE (2020).

So if you have a phone that isn't one of these, you can't charge it with a charger. You can only do this by cable, so it's not that you will have trouble charging using this method, but outright it is impossible for you to be able to do it.

No, the iPhone does not have a reversible charge

You may have received information that iPhones can be charged wirelessly and, in turn, can charge other devices if we put them on their back. The latter is wrong, although some other brands of devices have this capacity. Apple is known to have tested this reversible charging method on the iPhone 11 Pro, but it has not been implemented. If this was the problem you were having, rule out that it was a phone glitch as you are already finding that this load is inaccessible.

Check the charging station

The first thing we should look at is the accessories that make this load possible. There are plenty of charging points for the iPhone, but you should check if this is the case Qicertified This is the universal charging standard developed by the WPC (Wireless Power Consortium) and adopted by the iPhone mentioned in the previous point. You can check this in the base's manuals for yourself or check the manufacturer's website for information about it. Sometimes it is usually printed at the bottom of the screen.

A somewhat absurd but more common than usual failure is that the base is not properly connected to the power supply. Check that the power cord is connected to the base, but also that it is connected to the power supply and this in turn is connected to the plug. If you suspect the cable or adapter may be defective, test with someone else in the house to make sure that this is the problem and not that the base is affected. In some charging stations there is usually an LED indicator that lights up when the cable is connected to indicate that it is working well.

IPhone cases and placement

Something that should always be kept in mind is that there are some Covers that prevent wireless charging , either due to its thickness or the materials used for construction. Take the phone out of the case and see if it charges the base this way. Also remove any type of badge or badge, if any. The latter is worth noting as a sheet metal or the like could prevent charging, but if allowed it could create an electrical problem that could cause a fire.

Another common and easy to solve problem is Here's how to place iPhone on the dock. The iPhone should be placed with the screen up and the back in the center of the charging station. It doesn't have to be exactly in the center, but it does have to be in that area as it does the internal wireless charging. Sometimes a slight movement can prevent it from charging.

Is the iPhone failing?

Once the issues with the charging base, covers, and placement are ruled out, it is time to check whether the problem is definitively iPhone related or not. Maybe this is the problem. In contrast to a failure of the conventional charging connection, a fault in the wireless charging technology is not easy to see with the naked eye. In fact, the problem can be intermittent and allow a brief loading and then deactivating. This problem is ultimately due to some internal glitch in the device and that is why you should do so Contact technical support.

Once you contact Apple or an Authorized Technical Service (SAT), you can request an appointment for a full diagnosis of the terminal. Once they find the problem, you will be sent a repair quote that you may or may not accept. Sometimes the repair is even free, which happens when the iPhone is under warranty and the problem is due to a factory defect. Even if you've signed up to AppleCare +, the terms vary.

For most repairs, we always recommend going to Apple and Authorized Services, although there are other unauthorized institutions that will access this type of repair. The reasons for this recommendation are many and only in these places do they have precise tools and experience in detecting these defects, as well as completely original parts. So don't risk moving your device to an unreliable location to save a few bucks. As the saying goes, sometimes cheap is expensive.
