YouTube App Causing Battery Drain On iOS 11

iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

The new, higher speed of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X doesn't quite put them as high as the competition from Samsung (which can reach 15W through a supported charger) but it may turn out that in practice they'll charge equally fast. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable. Apple has been coy about the wireless charging tech inside its devices. That's because the current implementation maxes out at 5W, even though the Qi standard itself will handle more power with compatible chargers. However, Apple also revealed that its smartphone lineup will support up to 7.5-watts of fast wireless charging too. In MacRumors' trial, the iPhone X running iOS 11.2 on a Belkin 7.5W wireless charger took thirty minutes to go from 46-percent to 66-percent.

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. 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. However, it looks like Christmas has come early for those wanting faster Qi for their iPhone 8s and Xs. The Qi standard, now at v1.2, actually supports up to 15W being delivered.
