IOS 11 update brings faster wireless charging

15 November 2017

Apple's iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are about to get a little bit quicker about it, though, with the release of iOS 11.2.

It's worth noting that, even with this upgrade, Apple isn't at the very cutting edge of wireless charging rates.

As a reminder, all new iPhones support wireless charging, but as of iOS 11.1.1, which is the latest official software, only 5W Qi wireless chargers are supported. Updating your phone isn't enough to boost your charging speed, however.

Iran ballistic missile programme non-negotiable
Eight reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have confirmed Iran's full compliance with the agreement. During his visit to the United Arab Emirates on Thursday, Macron suggested amending the JCPOA.

Apple had promised that faster charging via wireless pads would arrive in time, but gave no roadmap for when it might actually be added.

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.

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.

Has 'Agent Pogba' Done It Again For Manchester United?
But Pogba has remained at Carrington in a bid to return in time to feature against Newcastle at Old Trafford on November 18. Pogba continued to say that Martial is a " big, big, big talent " and that he is only " going to improve " with age.

Most notably, it's significantly slower to charge an iPhone X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus via a wireless charger right now, compared to a wired charger. This means that you can go ahead and pick one of the many compatible charging mats out there to make use of this wireless technology.

Apple had previously said faster speeds would be released in a future update, which seems to be iOS 11.2.
