iOS 11 update brings faster wireless charging

iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

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 went with the Qi wireless standard when it comes to wireless (inductive) charging, but only supports 5W charging in the most current public builds of iOS 11. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable.

Apple had promised that faster charging via wireless pads would arrive in time, but gave no roadmap for when it might actually be added.

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

School honors Veterans with program
In the first year, the school raised $650, the cost for one honor flight for a veteran of World War II, Korea or Vietnam. The students later broke out into groups meeting with each veteran to hear about their experience one-on-one.

According to MacRumors, the 11.2 update will bring support for Qi wireless charging at a rate of 7.5 watts, an improvement over the current 5-watt limit allowed by iOS 11.1.1. 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.

iPhone X wireless charging. The Qi standard, now at v1.2, actually supports up to 15W being delivered.

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.
