IOS 11.2 Is Bringing Faster Wireless Charging

Is iOS 11.11 Really Worth the Update

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. This will give users a small, but noticeable boost in charging speeds over current 5W charging levels.

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. However, iPhone X jailbroken actually means that the Apple's latest phone does have vulnerabilities that can be exploited to offer users a jailbreak.

Apple has yet to release its AirPower charging pad; however, there are some third party options that work well with the iPhone.

Apple had promised that faster charging via wireless pads would arrive in time, but gave no roadmap for when it might actually be added. The same phone took more than 30 minutes to get from 40 percent to 60 percent while charging wirelessly on a Qi pad.


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

Still, that ramp up to 7.5W is barely touching the current limits of the Qi wireless charging technology, which allows for up to 15W of power to be transmitted to compatible devices.

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.
