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

iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

Apple is unlocking faster wireless charging on the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with the iOS 11.2 firmware update. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable.

Liang Chen of KeenLab has successfully cracked the iPhone X and demonstrated a functional jailbreak for Apple's latest flagship. Although the added support for 7.5W Qi charging won't introduce a dramatically quicker wireless charging experience, the evidence points out that users should expect marginally improved charging speeds.

It looks like there is a problem with Google's YouTube app on Apple's iOS 11. On a non-7.5W charger, the same period of time only saw the phone charge from 46-percent to 60-percent.

So he's not planning to leave UFC , but rather wants to incorporate boxing into the company's promotional portfolio. This past summer he headlined the biggest freak show fight of them all, a boxing fight against Floyd Mayweather .

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. Needless to say this charges their batteries faster and is overall a user-friendly trait that Apple will likely catch up on sometime in the future provided that the hardware inside the all-new trio of 2017 iPhones allows it. The Qi standard, now at v1.2, actually supports up to 15W being delivered.

In addition, there's also the factor that wireless charging usually requires you to place your phone on a charging pad, making it impossible to use and charge at the same time (unless you want to hover over your phone like a weirdo).
