Wireless Charging Comes to the Mophie | Mashable

I've been a fan of wireless charging for a couple of years now. First Duracell Powermat and now the open Qi standard. It's pretty easy to find cases or case inserts that make your iPhone compatible with wireless charging pads, and of course many Android and Windows Phones come with wireless charging built in. Apple is rumored to be considering this for the next iPhone, but in the meantime, Mophie is adding it to their battery cases. 

This strikes me as a very smart move on Mophie's part for a couple of reasons. First of all, accessory manufacturers have flooded the market with battery cases, driving down the prices consumers are willing to pay. Mophie needed to do something to differentiate their premium-priced products. Secondly, it seems to me that if Apple does add wireless charging to the next iPhone, this is a great way to bring that feature to iPhone 6/6s owners.

All in all, I say bravo, Mophie. It's not clear whether this case is compatible with the existing Qi standard, but that would make me seriously consider picking up one of these bad boys.

Here Comes the Headphone-pocalypse | AppleInsider

Amid rumors of an iPhone 7 that eliminates the headphone jack, a Chinese accessory manufacturer is showing off a new lightning-to-headphone adapter. Not an absolute indicator of things to come, but it does add fuel to the fire. As someone who has been using Bluetooth headphones exclusively for over a year now, it makes me wonder: if Apple does go this route, will everyone adopt Bluetooth headphones? Or will Apple make a killing off of $29 lightning adapters?
