  • iOS 11 update brings faster wireless charging

With the new software update iOS 11.2, Apple is planning to unlock faster wireless charging capabilities on the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.

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

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. Under the iOS 11.1.1 version, which was released last week, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X can charge at 5 watts using the Qi chargers. 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). On a non-7.5W charger, the same period of time only saw the phone charge from 46-percent to 60-percent. The Qi standard, now at v1.2, actually supports up to 15W being delivered.

Faster charging is pretty much always a plus, especially when it comes to wireless charging.

The one caveat here is that if you only have a 5W charging base, you will have to buy a new one that supports 7.5W if you want to take advantage of the update. 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). That requires a compatible smartphone, of course, and not all charging pads are compliant with that maximum rate.
