It's always been rumored that the iPhone X and iPhone 8 will land with wireless charging smarts in tow - a possibility reinforced by today's announcement that United Kingdom network EE will be pushing wireless charging devices more heavily going forward.

The network has also started selling Belkin Qi Wireless Charging pads for £29.99.

So, will protesting outside of Entrance 2 of Apple's new campus in Cupertino, California, really get the results the laborers want - corporate influencers' eyes and ears for a few seconds?

KGI says that Apple is waiting for a "technological breakthrough" before committing to any mass production of the accessory.

All those features have been available on other smartphones that sold for less than $1,000, but Apple's sense of design and marketing flair has a way of making them seem irresistible - and worth the extra expense.

It's unclear if Apple's charger will offer any benefits over third-party chargers.

Following quite a while of being barred at the bartering table, many AT&T remote laborers and individuals from the Communications Workers of America (CWA) will dissent outside the roll out event of the iPhone 8 at Apple HQ on Tuesday.
