New Qi2 standard set to improve wireless charging, with a bit of help from Apple

The Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) is currently working on pursuing the Qi wireless charging standard, and in a nice change of pace, Apple is helping by sharing its MagSafe technology.

It is well known that Apple does not always play nice with others as it seems to prefer complete control over its environment and not share it, discontent of others. But now, the tech giant is willingly allowing WPC to use MagSafe as the basis for Qi2, as it’s called, in order to create a “world standard” for wireless charging.
