Indeed, it's only a matter of time before we start seeing videos of the iPhone 8 being dropped from tall heights, submerged in deep waters, and subjected to all sorts of maniacal durability testing.

Ikea uses iPhone 8 launch to remind us it still makes wirelessly charging furniture

1 month ago   |   By The Verge

Ikea introduced furniture that can charge your phone through the Qi wireless charging standard back in 2015. Now, that Apple is adopting Qi in its latest iPhone 8 and iPhone X models, Ikea is piggybacking on the anticipated surge in popularity with some witty ads that play off a few of Apple's most well-known phrases. Essentially, Apple's “This changes everything” mantra has become the “This charges everything” ad campaign, while “Think different” is now “Link different.”

We'll save you the suspense: it's going to be expensive. But in a move that's very un-Apple, the company decided to use the Qi wireless charging standard in each of its three new iPhones, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. That means you won't have to buy Apple's overpriced wireless charging pad, and you can get one of the ones below instead. They're each well-reviewed, and they each cost less than $20.
