These 14 car brands can wirelessly charge your iPhone 8 handsets

The new iPhone 8 handsets have a fun little feature of being able to be charged without wires. Granted, you need a Qi-certified charger to do it, but the feature is there. And now several car manufacturers are loading their vehicles with chargers that meet that certification as well.

Apple has added a page to its support site detailing which manufacturers have chargers capable of wirelessly charging your iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in all of its vehicles. They are:

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

While iPhone 8s aren't a problem, Apple issued a caveat saying that some models may not work with the iPhone 8 Plus:

Some automotive wireless chargers have physical size constraints and might not fit every phone. If you're planning on buying a car with a wireless charger, make sure that your iPhone will fit in the charger first.

Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC have only a few vehicles that meet the Qi certification as of 2018. Models from 2017 will not be compatible. Those models are:

  • 2018 Buick Enclave
  • 2018 Cadillac Escalade
  • 2018 Chevrolet Bolt
  • 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2018 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2018 Chevrolet Suburban
  • 2018 GMC Terrain
  • 2018 GMC Yukon
  • 2018 GMC Sierra

The support page says nothing of the iPhone X, although given that the upcoming top-end model operates on the same Qi standards as the iPhone 8 handsets, this list should work for it as well. However, the size caveat would still apply.
