That is crazy. Maybe the hardware is there and it will be a s/w update to activate at some point?
Maybe. Who knows. Very disappointing. More negative news received yesterday that the Front number plate Holder is fitted to the car on delivery. Nightmare for 4 digit plates. Now I need to paint the bumper after delivery!

I had mine delivered this morning ! Spent most of yesterday reading over 300 pages of the user manual ! There is a setting where you can activate or deactivate the Qi charger. Have you checked this ? Spent an hour and a half with a delivery specialist setting up all the options on the car. He also said I was their first customer to read the manual and probably the last !

I think so !!! It does appear to have some sort of ventilation so it may well be that the hardware is installed or the module could be added at a later date with a corresponding software update. I’m speculating of course.

It's not there. I have tried all settings as per the manual. Hope it does get rolled out later.

Does your space in the armrest look like this? I have the wireless charger installed and it works just fine. But I am of course missing the Apple Car Play wireless! It is also stated in the Good to know app that the antenna coupling will be done in the holder, but have not been able to verify that

Seriously! No wireless charger in UK cars!?? Quite ridiculous. I’ll ask the dealer about it when collecting next week.

This is what the inside of the UK armrest looks like

Clearly not included in the UK cars then? Very strange?

Doesn’t look like it, does it. That’s a bit of a pain. Need to plug in anyway for Apple car play, wonder if I can find a cup holder charger that can be wired in to the car.

Yep same as mine!
Just collected my 4S in the UK and it's the same, i.e. no Qi wireless charging :confused: Like someone else said, I don't understand why this feature is country specific - especially as it carries the 'CE' mark (for Europe)? I too will ask my dealer on Friday. Was so looking forward to the convenience of wireless charging.
