Rumor that iPhone 11 supports reverse charging but it is disable by the software
Before Apple officially released products like iPhone 11, there were many rumors that Apple would add reverse charging on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro / Pro Max; the so-called reverse charging is to use the iPhone itself as a mobile power source. To charge Apple Watch, AirPods and even other devices. After the press conference ended, Apple did not mention this feature, and the official website did not write about it.
Rumor pointed out: iPhone 11 hardware supports bilateral charging, but the software disables it
Sonny Dickson, who repeatedly broke the new Apple specification, said on Twitter recently: ‘Reliable sources are saying iPhone 11 and 11 Pro do include the hardware for bilateral charging, but that it is software disabled. Uncertain whether this was removed prior to final production run.’

Is there a charging module inside the iPhone 11? In fact, after the new product is released, you can know that the iFixit should also provide the complete iPhone 11 disassembly report for the first time.
As for why Apple wants to put the hardware in place, it uses software to lock this function? There is no more news yet, perhaps to balance the battery life with other devices, so there is no perfect solution yet.
