In yet another report of a report, the Wall Street Journal points to a rumor that Apple may be experimenting with charging via induction for their future iPhones. Makes sense, the new iOS software essentially cuts the cord in terms of syncing (of which I am very excited for) so it would be safe to assume that eventually they would want to cut the power cord as well.

For those wondering, charging via induction takes exactly the same amount of time to charge as with a regular cord. You just get to do it without messy wires.

The skin unfortunately adds an unsightly hump at the base where the dock connector is, but that may be a small price to pay if you really need your iPhone charged sans wires.
