The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X support wireless charging. You can buy wireless chargers for your home or office, and many new cars include wireless chargers built-in that work with the new iPhones.
Apple just confirmed a list of car wireless chargers that work with the iPhone 8, and that may work with the iPhone 8 Plus. All of these cars use the qi wireless charging standard that the iPhone 8 and iPhone X support, but you may not always be able to use them with the iPhone 8 Plus due to the phone’s size.
Here are the cars with built-in wireless chargers you can use to charge your iPhone. Keep in mind that you may need to get the higher trim level or special technology packages to add the wireless charger to your car.
Apple says you can use wireless chargers built-in to the following brands to charge your new iPhone;
We’ve tested the wireless chargers in many of these models in the U.S. including the Honda Odyssey, Honda Accord, Toyota Prius Prime and others and found the built-in chargers to be very convenient. On the latest model years, you should have good luck fitting the larger iPhone 8 Plus onto the charger as designers have been placing the chargers with big phones in mind. While not included in the list we’ve used the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT to wireless charge phones and the company specifically made it with the iPhone in mind.
If you are looking at 2018 model year Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles you can wirelessly charge in the following vehicles. You cannot use wireless charging in these models from 2017 or earlier.

Built-in wireless charging is one of our must have car features when you go buy a car. The only downside is that most of these models don’t support wireless CarPlay. If you want to use Apple CarPlay, you will need to plug into a Lightning cable, but even then the wireless charger is handy for short trips or for when you only need a Bluetooth connection to your car.
