Wireless charging has been around for a few years now. Most high-end smartphones do support this charging technology but Apple has never adopted it for the iPhone. Not one iPhone since the first arrived in 2007 has had support for wireless charging, but that sort of changes today, with new wireless charging battery cases for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus from Mophie.

Mophie’s Juice Pack Wireless cases bring wireless charging for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. To be clear, the case uses wireless charging to fill up the battery it has, not the iPhone’s battery, which is charged with the case. It doesn’t directly charge the iPhone’s battery through wireless charging.

The company says that this case supports almost all wireless charging standards, including Qi, which is the most common standard that you will find in mobile devices. Both cases come with a flat charging base which can also be purchased separately if you would like to have more than one of them.

Mophie Juice Pack Wireless and Juice Pack Wireless Plus cost $99.95 and $129.95 respectively. It’s also selling another version of this case for 5.5 inch Plus iPhones.

There have been rumors that the next iPhone could have support for wireless charging by default but there’s not enough evidence available right now to support that theory.
