PowerbyProxi was founded by an entrepreneur Fady Mishriki in 2007. The "team will be a great addition as Apple works to create a wireless future", said Riccio.

Apple has apparently confirmed the acquisition and the team at the company will be joining Apple.

Apple shared its plans for wireless charging at the unveiling of its iPhone 8 in September.

Wireless charging works with the established Qi ecosystem, including two new wireless charging mats from Belkin and mophie, available from Apple Authorised Resellers.
