Wireless charger and larger iPhones


Is there any aftermarket solution to the ludicrous situation with the wireless charger being too small for most new iPhone models?

I specced this (I think the technical name is an induction charger) on my car and between ordering the car and it being delivered I got an IPhone 8 Plus - car was delivered and the slider on the induction pad is about 2mm too short to accommodation the new phone. My only get around for this expensive and useless piece of kit is to revert to the old fashioned white cable from Apple and plug it into one of the USB sockets.
I recently bought a new IPad Pro 11 and find now I have to buy another load of cables and connectors as Apple has changed from the Lightenng connector to USB C connections......... Worse the cable that comes with the tablet has a USB C connector on each end - so had to go and find a new cable with USB A on one end and a USB C on the other because none of the USB C connection cables I already have were not compatible with the iPad........ no data or charge was transferred down the old ones.... grrrrrr

I feel your pain. I have the same wireless charger in my X2 and it's literally millimeters short.
