In a series of last-minute iPhone 11 leaks that dropped just before Apple’s event, we learned that one of the rumored features of the iPhone 11 may not be coming after all.

Earlier than that, reports said that all three iPhone 11 models would support reverse wireless charging, allowing users to recharge devices like AirPods, the Apple Watch, and other phones from the iPhone. Some reports even claimed that the repositioning of the Apple logo on the back of the iPhones was related to the wireless charging feature, providing users a visual indication of where the gadget should be placed on the back of the iPhone. Apple never mentioned the feature on stage during the event, but a new report claims that all the hardware for the feature is in place on all the three phones. The feature, however, is not enabled.

65 years of the Viaduct: Remembering Seattle's most contested elevated freeway

  65 years of the Viaduct: Remembering Seattle's most contested elevated freeway The viaduct is no more. Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct was many things — beloved, hated, seismically unsound, embattled, short, a helluva view. And after 65 years, the final bits of it have been torn down. In its wake it leaves a brand new tunnel, a brand new waterfront, and plenty of memories of driving on it and praying an earthquake doesn't strike. Still, Seattle wouldn't be who it is without that stretch of highway, which, in just six decades, left a bigger footprint than its few miles.

The revelation comes from noted Apple leaker Sonny Dickson, who took to Twitter to say that that bilateral charging hardware is present on all iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro phones, but the software is disabled:

It’s unclear why Apple canned the feature, but if the above is true, then the company must have decided to disable it late in the game, at a point where hardware changes were no longer possible.

Insider Ming-Chi Kuo said a few days ago that the feature was abandoned because “the charging efficiency may not meet Apple’s requirements.” Kuo did not go into any further detail, though.

Reliable sources are saying iPhone 11 and 11 Pro do include the hardware for bilateral charging, but that it is software disabled. Samsung has offered this feature for months now through what it calls Wireless PowerShare. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a note to investors before Apple’s press

Apple has canceled the AirPower universal wireless charger because it failed to address various issues with wireless charging, but the company never explained what went wrong. It’s unlikely that Apple will share any details about the iPhone 11’s supposedly disabled reverse wireless charging, either.

That doesn’t mean, however, that Apple will enable wireless charging on the handsets at any point in the future, just because the hardware can support it.
