but wireless is electromagnetic. magnetic is electromagnetic.

isn't the waterproof charging the really important bit, so we can charge underwater?

Since Apple calls the universally accepted inductive charging "magnetic charging" they will likely come up with an equally obnoxious and pretentious sounding name for wireless charging when the time comes.

I'm thinking "Apple Air Current" or something.

How about "true wireless" just like you've been calling AirPods to distinguish them from the somehow "untrue" wireless that other headphones use?
