Problem with GM in-car Wireless Charger: The transmitter related to the built-in wireless chargers will not charge iPhone 8.
BEZALEL has a solution.
Do you have an iPhone 8 and a GM car from 2015, 2016 or 2017 and want to wirelessly charge your iPhone 8 on their in-built wireless charging pad?
Well, here's some news for you.
The wireless charging pads that come in the 2015-2017 model vehicles for GMC, Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick are Generation 1 Module wireless charging. After the release of the iPhone 8, it was discovered that the Generation 1 Module wireless charging in various GM vehicles (2015-2017) has limitations that prohibit the iPhone 8 from being charged.
The transmitter related to power issues for the in-built wireless chargers will not charge the iPhone 8.
Thus, people with a GM vehicle who want to charge their iPhones 8 will have a problem. If you're one of these people, or know someone with this problem, the good news is that BEZALEL has a solution!
