So, as my mind usually does at 3 AM, I start thinking about things and the one topic (above) came to my mind.  Currently, the new iPhone 8's have a charging connector to charge and connect via USB port in your car. As I understand it, in order to use CarPlay, it must be connected.  When the new iPhone X ( and future models I'm sure) come out, there will be no charging port. The charging is done via a "hot plate".  Any thoughts on how CarPlay will work? That's my morning thoughts for the day.

The iPhone X will also have the usual port at the bottom.


See it under external buttons & connectors.

Was jus about to say that. Both iPhone 8 and X utilize Qi wireless charging as well as standard charging via lighting port.

No issues with CarPlay.
