New Apple Support Document Lists Car Manufacturers' Wireless Chargers Compatible With iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

Apple says Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, PSA, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo all offers wireless charging options that work with the iPhone 8, and that “might work with the iPhone 8 Plus.” The caveat is due to the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, which might not fit in the space allowed for the chargers in some car models.

In addition to those manufacturers, Apple also lists several specific GM models vehicles that offer wireless charging options compatible with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The possible iPhone 8 Plus size issue may also apply to these models.

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

The Cupertino firm notes the implementations of wireless charging in 2017 and earlier models from Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC do not meet the requirements for Qi certification. These models do not work with iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple recommends making sure your iPhone 8 Plus will fit in any vehicle’s charger before making a final vehicle buying decision.
