According to a social account with frequent and accurate revelations about iPhone, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro do have the hardware needed for reverse charging to at least charge the AirPods wireless charging box, but it is currently disabled in the software, according to a social account from foreign media.
The information was made public on Twitter through Sonny Dickson's user account, and he claimed to have obtained it from reliable sources.
Reverse charging or bidirectional charging will allow the iPhone device to charge another device. It works in a similar way to turning the iPhone backplane into a wireless charging board, and Samsung's Galaxy series has been praised for supporting this feature. Apple analysts have been predicting that the new iPhone 11 series will support reverse charging, allowing users to charge other iPhone,AirPods and Apple Watch that support wireless charging.
On the eve of the 9.10 launch, however, the analysis was revised again, saying that the reverse charging of the iPhone 11 had been cancelled due to insufficient charging efficiency.
There is also a saying that the reason for the iPhone 11 series back Apple LOGO change is that a reverse charging module has been installed, and the LOGO in the center can guide the user to align the coil position during reverse charging. It is possible that Apple decided to abandon the reverse charge before final production and turned it off in the iOS.
