Wireless charging will allow you to drop the iPhone on a pad to charge, instead of having to plug it in. The iPhone X, which is expected to be the first iPhone with an OLED screen, will come in several new colour variants, including oft-reported Blush Gold, which in particular will be in "extremely low volume" initially, Kuo was quoted as saying.

Mere hours ahead of the unveiling of the long-awaited iPhone X (or whatever Apple's gonna call its 10th anniversary iPhone), famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has claimed that wireless charging won't be ready for prime time at the release of the new iPhone.

"Which we believe is primarily because Apple has higher requirements for wireless charger RF specifications, so there will be no definite mass production timetable prior to technological breakthroughs", he continued.

It added that it would be including "a range of wireless charging and accessory bundles, enabling customers to choose the right charger and case combination for them".

AT&T has increasingly handed over the operations of its retail operations to third-party dealers that now represent over 60% of all AT&T branded stores-a strategy that may be driving a growing pattern of customer complaints, according to a CWA report.

Kuo suggests some off-the-shelf wireless chargers may work with the new iPhones.

Another detail from Tuesday's Apple Insight note: Foxconn and its parent company Hon Hai may end up being a big victor this cycle. Even at that rate, production was not enough to keep up with demand, says the 9to5Mac report.

The increased orders are coming at Apple supplier Winston's expense, according to the report.
