Here are the cars that support the wireless charging of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X

The iPhone 8 and the iPhone X charging wireless sports and there are a handful of car manufacturers that already include Qi charging tablets. Basically, Apple says, most of these wireless charging pads will work although there are outliers. The main exception is that some of the pads are not big enough for the iPhone 8 Plus so in this case you will have to plug your phone into a cable to charge. There is no workaround if the phone is too big.

As a general rule, the wireless charging blocks built into the cars of these manufacturers will work.

  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Chrysler
  • Ford
  • Honda
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • PSA
  • Toyota
  • Volkswagen
  • Volvo

Things are getting worse with General Motors brands, although the manufacturer is starting to include wireless chargers in its 2017 model range, but these pads do not meet Qi standards. As such, only the following models support wireless charging on the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X.

  • 2018 Field GMC
  • 2018 GMC Yukon
  • 2018 GMC Sierra
  • Chevrolet Bolt 2018
  • Chevrolet Tahoe 2018
  • Chevrolet Silverado 2018
  • Chevrolet Suburban 2018
  • Cadillac Climbing 2018
  • 2018 Buick Enclave

It will be interesting to see if Apple pushes the Qi standard faster than when Android started supporting wireless charging. The use of the pellets loading has some advantages, but as the charging rate is lower than that of a cable and that the use of a buffer reduces the ability of a nobody to use the phone while charging, it also has big drawbacks.

Car manufacturers have long been offering phone charging tablets, but only until recently using the Qi standard. Earlier implementations required that the car owner use specific phone housings to use the charging capabilities and nobody likes that.
