The iPhone 8 is here. And, so too is a new generation of wireless charging for iPhone users.
For the first time, iPhone users will be able to charge their phones on IKEA furniture without the need for a wireless adaptor.
The new iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X devices all support wireless charging, which means iPhone users will finally be able to make use of IKEA’s wireless charging solutions.
“Finally, the time is here when iPhone owners can make use of the multi-functional RIGGAD – your phone’s favorite lamp,” reads an IKEA statement.
IKEA has been selling wireless charging pads since 2015, but all the products required adaptors in order to function as iPhone chargers. Until now, iPhone users had to buy IKEA’s VITAHULT wireless charging cover in order to make their phones compatible with the lamp.
“With this launch [of the iPhone 8], IKEA and Apple are finally aligning,” an IKEA spokesperson told Mashable.
“IKEA has been very progressive with wireless charging, and we are thrilled that new iPhone owners finally can make use of one of the most powerful lamps we’ve ever made,” Morten Kjær, Creative Director at IKEA Creative Hub, said in a statement.
The wireless charging RIGGAD lamp can be purchased for $69.99 from IKEA stores worldwide.
