IOS 11.2 Is Bringing Faster Wireless Charging

  • Is iOS 11.11 Really Worth the Update

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

In case you were wondering which version of iOS will enable 7.5 watts of fast wireless charging on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, now you know.

Apple had promised that faster charging via wireless pads would arrive in time, but gave no roadmap for when it might actually be added. However, Mac Rumours received a tip from accessory maker RAVpower about this new update and how it will be increasing the charging speeds. The charger, which is sold by Apple, supports charging at 7.5 watts and was able to charge the iPhone X from 46 to 66 percent in 30 minutes.


With that being said, there are a number of cheap Qi-compatible chargers already on the market that support 5W charging on the iPhone 8 family and iPhone X including the $15.99 CHOETECH T511 charging pad.

Qi chargers can support 15W of wireless charging, but it's not known whether Apple's iPhone lineup can do the same. A number of users of the app have reported problems with the battery on their device draining whilst using the app. Users are reporting problems with the app on both the iPhone and iPad. Still, if you're a supporter of wireless charging, faster charging speeds can only encourage you to embrace the cable-free future (and will probably get you to stop fiddling with your phone).
