IOS 11.2 Is Bringing Faster Wireless Charging

One particular feature that is just now being exploited by the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X is wireless charging.

Wireless charging on the latest iPhone is convenient, but it hasn't been very fast. This will give users a small, but noticeable boost in charging speeds over current 5W charging levels.

Other Final Fantasy XV characters shown on the Hammerhead stage include Noctis' party, some Chocobos, Cindy and other NPCs. He added that paid Tekken 7 DLC will not be used to add new characters but, will add more special content to the game.

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 iPhone charged from 46 percent to 60 percent over 30 minutes when using a wireless charging accessory that does not offer 7.5W charging speeds.

It should be noted, however, that although 7.5W speeds are much appreciated, the iPhone X and its siblings are still behind - far behind - rivals when it comes to wireless charging capabilities. It will, it's said, upgrade the 2017 iPhone range's wireless charging power support to 7.5W. The Qi standard, now at v1.2, actually supports up to 15W being delivered. Apple promised faster charging sometime in the future which many took to mean after the launch of the AirPower Mat in 2018. That requires a compatible smartphone, of course, and not all charging pads are compliant with that maximum rate. Apple has not announced when 11.2 will be ready but Mac Rumors says that since it is in its third beta version, the official release should be coming soon - most likely within the next month.
