DigiTimes recently reported that Cupertino is working on a wireless charging solution for the future iPhone 5S.

However, 9to5Mac notes that such a major change is not likely in the near future, much less in the iPhone 5S rumored to be launched this year.

The implementation of this type of technology would require significant design changes in the phone’s aluminum case.

The site also notes that if the Galaxy S4 adopts wireless charging, Apple would once again be one step behind.
