Your iPhone X is about to wirelessly charge faster

iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

iOS 11 update brings faster wireless charging

Apple's iOS 11.2 beta shows iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X users will soon be able to charge their devices faster when using wireless charging accessories, according to MacRumors.

It looks like there is a problem with Google's YouTube app on Apple's iOS 11.

However, even with the iOS 11.2, the new iPhone will not be supporting the maximum charging speeds available on the current Qi 1.2 standard which is 15 W. But this 7.5 W charging speed is certainly an improvement over the current 5 W charging speeds offered.

After the decision, Bombardier sold a majority stake in its C Series jet business to European aerospace giant Airbus for no cost. Cromer said both sales had already being under negotiation and were not the result of the Airbus venture.

MacRumors received a tip about the new feature from accessory maker RAVpower this evening, and tested the new charging speeds to confirm. Using a non-7.5W wireless charger topped the same iPhone X from 46% to 60% in over 30 minutes, which speaks of marginal gains here and there, but gains nonetheless. Still, 7.5W is faster than what you can get right now, so if you're buying your first Qi charging pad, check the box to make sure it outputs at least that much of a charge.

Not every wireless charging pad supports the faster 7.5-watt charging rate, meaning you might need to shell out for a new model if you want to take advantage of faster speeds. Apple's working on its own AirPower wireless charging pad, one that will charge up to three devices at a time like (your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch). The iOS 11.2 beta is now available for developers only, but could launch soon to the public.
