If you’re a seasoned iPad Air enthusiast, you might wonder if it has wireless charging. After all, the iPhone has made that wish come true.
So, come along with me and find out.
With the arrival of the iPad 10, everyone is focusing on its features. This iPad has a new look with multiple colors to choose from. Also, Apple has removed the headphone jack and upgraded the chip.
However, apart from these modifications, we didn’t find out that it has wireless charging. You can only charge it using its USB type-C port.
You can charge your watch and iPhone on the charging pad. However, the tablet does not implement this feature.
You can buy a Qi wireless charger to charge it wirelessly. You can add a back case to keep the look clean. Be careful not to use a case that is too thick, as this will prevent the charging receiver from working properly.
However, this method will reduce the charging speed, and you can use it according to your needs.
Overall, wireless charging is not supported on any iPad or iPad Air. You should be patient and wait for Apple’s release.
Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t have an iPad with charging capabilities yet.
But some tablets offer wireless charging. The Fire HD 8 Plus and the Fire HD 10 Plus from Amazon can be charged wirelessly, but neither is as powerful as the iPad Pro (2022).
If you’d rather use your folding phone as a tablet, you can charge the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 wirelessly, and it runs Android 12L.
It makes multitasking a breeze.
Most smartwatches and iPhone series phones nowadays implement wireless charging as a feature. Many people expected the iPad to offer this feature, but the result was delayed.
Why is this?
It is because implementing the charging function on the iPad is related to the following reasons:
Unfortunately, the iPad doesn’t have such coils on the back to charge it.
There is a market only when there is demand. The fact that wireless charging has gained popularity shows that it has certain advantages.
These advantages can make the iPad better and more convenient for everyone to work or play.
Its benefits are specifically reflected in the following aspects:
Since cell phones have already implemented this feature and made everyone’s life convenient to a great extent. Even if iPad doesn’t support this feature for the time being, what about the future?
If there is a demand in the market, will Apple release an iPad with a wireless function?
There is no answer to this question for now.
Wireless requires a glass or plastic back, which is difficult to realize on iPad. Due to the size and weight of the iPad, the glass back would break easily. It would make it very short-lived and a major safety hazard. But aluminum is less high quality than plastic and needs to fit the iPad’s product philosophy.
Although Apple has not released an iPad with wireless charging, you can choose another way to get around it.
You can use the iPort Launch Port or Launch by iPort.
The iPort Launch is a wireless charger customized for the Apple iPad. It has an inductive charger and a matching case for the iPad. In addition, the charger uses magnetic technology. You can install it anywhere you want.
Of course, another feature of this protective case is its great durability. Even if you drop it from a height of 6 feet, it will not have any problems. But you must note that the dock charger requires 12v power.
Even though the iPad Air doesn’t have wireless charging yet, it’s important to remember that technology is always moving forward.
It is forever advancing and surprising us with innovations.
As we look into the future, Apple may add wireless charging to future iPad models.
It will bring greater convenience and efficiency to users around the world.
Apple’s choice is well thought out, whether because they want a slimmer design, faster charging speeds, or to keep their prices competitive.
It aims to provide the best possible user experience.
