MagSafe ought to make sure that the iPhone is correctly aligned with its wireless charger-if they are not aligned, they may not be able to charge.

This may mean that Apple is starting to switch from wired charging of iPhone to wireless charging-the future iPhone will not have a charging port in all. This enables Apple to make the iPhone more waterproof.
