“All you have to do is set the phone down on the charging pad and your job is done. No messing with cords, no worrying about putting a cord the wrong way while it’s plugged in (although if you decide to use your phone in the middle of charging your phone won’t continue to charge), and no worrying about damaging your only method of charging your phone.”
Uhm, I never have to “mess with cords” or “worrying to put a cord the wrong way”… That's why Apple invented the Lightning connector and it's very sturdy. No hassle at all. I have a charger at home, in my car and at my work. And the charger is smaller than any wireless charger… In fact it is as small as the power plug for the wireless charging plate!
So no thanks, no wireless charging for me. It's still just a gimmick. If Apple ever will do that they will do it differently. Much smarter. I'm sure of that.
