How does Wireless Charging Work?

Apple Wireless charging works using magnetic induction. The mobile device is placed on the CHARGhub, and the phone will automatically start charging.

Charging could be effected by the thickness or the material of a phone case.

The magnetic induction charging could damage the magnetic strips found on the back of credit/debit cards, or the RFID chips found in cards. These should be removed from the device before charging.

It is normal for the mobile device to slightly warm, if the phone gets too warm, the mobile device may stop charging at around 80%, and only restart charging once the phone has cooled.

Wireless charging will not work, if the mobile device is connected via USB to another device.
