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

According to a tip revealed by accessory maker RAVpower, the upcoming official release iOS 11.2 will be the software update that will unlock faster wireless charging for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable.

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.

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

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. It will, it's said, upgrade the 2017 iPhone range's wireless charging power support to 7.5W.

Driverless vehicle involved in crash in first hour of first day
The shuttle service in Las Vegas is allowed to carry 15 passengers at a time, ferrying them from one place of the town to another. A truck backed into the self-driving shuttle, causing a relatively minor crash with no injuries.

The Mophie Wireless Charging Base and Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad (both $59) should deliver fast wireless charging to the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Since iOS 11.2 is now in beta, available to developers and those enrolled in Apple's public beta, tests on the upgraded charging speeds have already been possible. 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.

The current Qi standard, version 1.2, allows for up to 15W, so Apple isn't in the lead here.
