Samsung's latest ad teases Apple over a feature the iPhone doesn't have that Samsung's new phones do

Samsung is Apple’s biggest competitor in the smartphone space, and it’s reminded us of that countless times in its ads. The company’s newest commercial takes a stab at the iPhone yet again for its lack of wireless charging capabilities.

This isn’t the first time Samsung has made an ad that specifically targets the iPhone. In June, the company released a new ad that showed off the curved display on its Galaxy S6 Edge and the phone’s camera features.
