IOS 11.2 Will Feature Faster iPhone 8, iPhone X Wireless Charging

iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken iOS 11 update brings faster wireless charging

iPhone 8 and iPhone X owners using wireless charging pads to power their devices are about to receive a pleasant surprise thanks to a software update: Apple's upcoming iOS 11.2 will add support for faster wireless charging for the Qi-compatible smartphones.

MacRumors was able to confirm via representatives for RAVpower that 7.5W charging speeds will be unlocked via iOS 11.2, which is now undergoing developer/public beta testing. Updating your phone isn't enough to boost your charging speed, however.

Head's up. If your all-new Apple iPhone 8 is experiencing rapid battery drain and battery overheating, you may want to stop utilizing the YouTube application. On a Belkin charger that supports 7.5W speeds, the iPhone X went from 46 to 66 percent charge in half an hour, as opposed from 46 to 60 percent on a 5W charger. However, Apple also revealed that its smartphone lineup will support up to 7.5-watts of fast wireless charging too.

The series will comprise three T20 matches on March 29, 31, and April 1 and all the matches will be played in Lahore. Instead, a five-year contract has been signed with the West Indies cricket board.

It should be noted, however, that although 7.5W speeds are much appreciated, the iPhone X and its siblings are still behind - far behind - rivals when it comes to wireless charging capabilities.

The tech giant is set to release its own wireless charger in 2018, although iPhone owners can use third party products now to juice up their handsets.

The Qi 1.2 standard is capable of up to 15W so iOS is only tapping 50 percent of the potential of the technology. According to a new report, the iOS 11.2 update will help the latest iPhone devices to charge at 7.5 watts when placed on a compatible Qi-based wireless charging pad.
