THE new Apple iPhone 7 could be wirelessly charged from up to 15 foot, according to the latest reports ahead of its launch.

Apple has partnered up with tech firm Energous to use its WattUp wire-free charging system in its future phones.

Speculation is already growing that Apple is planning groundbreaking wireless charging capabilities.

Energous technology allows "practically any type of device" to be charged wirelessly from distances of up to 15 foot.

The company uses a 'tiny' chip which would suit Apple, considering its design constraints.

The chip receives power from a transmitter.

A launch date for the Apple iPhone 7, or any new products, has not been released yet.
