With the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus (all
announced yesterday), Apple finally has smartphones that support wireless
charging. Hooray! Now, while Apple plans to release its own AirPower wireless charging
mat, this won’t be out before 2018. Until then, you’ll have to buy third-party
wireless charging accessories if you want to charge your new iPhone cable-free
in your home.
Fortunately, you’ll also be able to wirelessly charge any of
the three new iPhones even if you don’t actually own a compatible accessory, as

Powermat today announced that the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus are fully
compatible with its wireless Charging Spots. In case you didn’t know, right

To easily check for Powermat Charging Spot locations near you, you should download
the official Powermat app via iTunes (see the second source link below). In

iPhone, as you won’t be able to actually charge the device on a Powermat Spot without it.
