Wireless charging replaces the usual power cable with an inductive mat,
which makes it easier for users to top up their device’s battery.
It has grown into a common feature in smartphones but is
a rarity among tablets. Apple added wireless charging
to iPhones in 2017 and last year updated it with
a magnet-based MagSafe system that ensured
more consistent charging speeds.

Apple is reportedly testing a MagSafe system for charging
the iPad Pro, similar to the one found on the iPhone 12.
Additionally, the company is testing reversing wireless charging
which would let users charge their phone and other devices by
laying them on the back of the iPad. There have been rumors that
Apple is working on introducing this capability to iPhone as well.
Finally, Apple continues to explore development of a wireless
charger that works similar to its failed AirPower charging mat.
It’s also investigating alternative wireless charging
methods that work over greater distances.
