Your iPhone X is about to wirelessly charge faster

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. But iOS 11.2 will boost charging speeds, just as Apple promised.

MacRumors received a tip about the new feature from accessory maker RAVpower this evening, and tested the new charging speeds to confirm.

Apple had promised that faster charging via wireless pads would arrive in time, but gave no roadmap for when it might actually be added. Previous firmware versions iPhone only supported charging at 5W using compatible Qi wireless chargers.

The smartphones, which can charge wirelessly with Qi-based accessories like the Belkin and Mophie pads, will be able to charge at 7.5 watts with iOS 11.2.


As MacRumors points out, an iPhone X running the iOS 11.2 beta got charged from 46% to 66% by a 7.5W Belkin wireless charger in about 30 minutes.

If you're about to buy wireless chargers for the iPhone, make sure they support at least 7.5W speeds.

Not every wireless charging pad supports the faster 7.5-watt charging rate, meaning you might need to shell out for a new model if you want to take advantage of faster speeds.

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. Liang Chen earlier projects include a jailbreak for iOS 11 beta 2 and iOS 10.3.2 that never launched publicly.
