Will Apple's new iPhones explode if they wirelessly charge while plugged in? What happens if you put an iPhone X or iPhone 8 that's charging with a cable onto a wireless charging pad? Will it blow up? Will it just charge normally? First off, your iPhone won't explode. That would be a massive oversight on Apple's part. So, let's break this down into two scenarios: What happens if you put a charging iPhone down on an active wireless charging pad? It continues to charge using the cable... But there's a "but." The iPhone draws a small amount of current through the charging pad (around 0.4Amps). To compensate for this, it reduces the amount it's pulling from the charger. However, the iPhone and its overall charging time do not seem to be affected. But what happens if you charge an iPhone using a cable that's already on a charging pad? It ignores the cable completely and continues to draw a charge from the charging pad.
