Wireless charging for the iPhone X and iPhone 8 leads to more battery wear than charging via cable, ZDNet writes.
The author of the publication, Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, noticed that in six months his iPhone had gone through 135 full charge cycles. Six months ago, Hughes began using a wireless charger, and he claims that he now has to constantly charge his smartphone.
Hughes does not specify which model in question — the iPhone X or 8 — but notes that the battery of his previous iPhone 6 Plus, after 800 charging cycles, still has 80 percent of its original capacity.
According to Mashable, users of Android-based phones also experienced significant battery wear when using wireless charging.
At the end of 2017, Apple admitted that it intentionally underestimates the performance of smartphones with an old battery. The corporation has promised users to reimburse the cost of replacing the iPhone battery.
