Improved Wireless Charging Coming With iOS 11.2

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.

However, even with the iOS 11.2, the new iPhone will not be supporting the maximum charging speeds available on the current Qi 1.2 standard which is 15 W. But this 7.5 W charging speed is certainly an improvement over the current 5 W charging speeds offered. 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. Our favorite wireless charger for the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus indeed supports 7.5W charging. Liang Chen earlier projects include a jailbreak for iOS 11 beta 2 and iOS 10.3.2 that never launched publicly.

iPhone X wireless charging. Since then, Apple released a few iOS 11.2 betas and MacRumors now says that the final release will enable 7.5W charging speeds. Some of these allow for up to 15W of wireless charging power. On a non-7.5W charger, the same period of time only saw the phone charge from 46-percent to 60-percent. However, tech-savvy users who jailbreak their phones discover a completely new world and claim that as long as you stay away from shady sources, there's no need to worry about having your device compromised.
