Until now that is, as Slashleaks have shared images which seem to prove that before long you won't be rooting around for a cable in the dark after 6 pints.

Mashable reports that, "The device's charging coil, along with other features visible in the photo, are clearly meant to be used for the inductive charging expected with the future phones for wireless charging."

"The module is supposedly made for the iPhone, although it's unclear whether it will be included inside the phone's interior or a separate, external charging pad, since it appears to fit within the expected dimensions for the device, as AppleInsider noted."

In regard to the design they commented, "The rear view shows off some more detailed information about the module, most notably that it will have an expected voltage between five and 12 volts and use the inductive Qi standard, which has been touted as the most likely format for Apple's wireless tech since the company joined the Wireless Power Consortium back in February."

This in addition to the news the model will feature an all-glass design, facial detection and retina scanning has us very excited indeed.

Until we heard about the price that is.
