Last month, Apple has made a bunch of hardware and software announcements including the all-new iPads and second-gen Apple AirPods.

Apple Inc on Friday said it is cancelling the AirPower wireless charging mat that the company announced in 2017 on the same day as its iPhone X, a rare public retreat for the gadget maker known for splashy product launches.

Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at Apple Philip Schiller introduces AirPower, a wireless charging system, during a media event at Apple's new headquarters in Cupertino, California on September 12, 2017.

The report, which was published by MacRumors, comes from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who predicts that two-way wireless charging will feature in Apple's next batch of iPhones. With the reverse wireless charging, the 2019 iPhones can wirelessly charge the new AirPods on the go. As of now, there is no information about the naming of these upcoming iPhones. In the follow-up to the iPhone XS Max, we could see a battery that's 10-15% larger than what we now have, while the iPhone XS successor stands to make the biggest gains, with Kuo predicting a 20-25% increase in capacity. Kuo claims the successor to the iPhone XR will gain two-way charging support, but the battery will hardly increase in size. The current-gen iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with 2,658mAh and 3,174 mAh battery capacities. It will support Qi-standard and will charge other smartphones too.
