For a number of years now we've been reporting on patent applications and industry rumours suggesting that Apple is working on wireless charging technology for its iPhone range.

More specifically, it's revealed that Apple has hired two former uBeam engineers in the past four months.

Apple's hiring of those with uBeam expertise points to an exciting possible future for the iPhone family.

One where our phones are charged while we're walking around our homes, our local shopping mall, or an airport departure lounge.

In the past two years, Apple has hired more than a dozen staff with expertise in the wireless charging field.

Is it too soon to hope for such a feature in next year's iPhone 8?
