When Apple unveiled its next-generation iPhone last month, the Cupertino-based tech giant did not announce any plans for a “smart battery,” a device that will allow users to charge their iPhones without having to connect a cable or plug it into a wall outlet.
Instead, Apple unveiled a special, “acdelcos” battery, a new type of battery that can be charged through a special “accello” adapter that has been designed specifically for charging iPhone 6 models.
This new battery is meant to be used with the Apple iPhone 6, which is available for purchase in a number of colors and sizes.
The new battery will reportedly work with the iPhone 6 and the iPhone SE, the latter of which is the most expensive smartphone in the world.
However, it’s not clear how this adapter will work with iPhone 6 Plus models, or whether it will work for older models.
According to AppleInsider, it may work with all models of the iPhone, but that’s not certain.
AppleInsider has reached out to Apple for comment, and will update this story if and when it receives a response.
Apple is planning to release its first “smart batteries” sometime in the second half of 2018, but it has yet to announce any dates for that launch.
The company has already announced a number new “smart” battery options for the iPhone that are slated to launch in the first half of 2019.
