Apple will include bigger wireless charging coils in this year’s iPhone 13 range which could offer better heat management and pave the way for reverse wireless charging according to a report from EverythingApplePro.

The report suggests that the Cupertino company plans to add a larger charging coil to this year’s iPhone, which increases the surface area of where wireless charging could be induced.

Bear in mind that Apple introduced MagSafe in 2020, it’s likely that these new larger coils would make MagSafe magnets even stronger, which could offer new use cases and perhaps even lead to faster wireless charging capabilities.

According to insiders, the larger coil size could mean that Apple finally plans to bring reverse wireless charging to the iPhone, something that has been rumored for a while. If this was the case, users would be able to charge their AirPods and Apple Watches on the back of their iPhones for a quick top-up whenever needed.

However, this news contradicts a previous report from Mark Gurman, who suggested Apple was “unlikely” to add reverse wireless charging in the near future. However, FCC filings for last year’s iPhone 12 show that all models can reverse wirelessly charge other devices, though this feature has been turned off.
