How to Get Fast Wireless Charging on iPhone X and iPhone 8

How to Get Fast Wireless Charging on iPhone X and iPhone 8

Qi chargers can support 15W of wireless charging, but it's not known whether Apple's iPhone lineup can do the same. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable. A number of users of the app have reported problems with the battery on their device draining whilst using the app. Users are reporting problems with the app on both the iPhone and iPad.

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.

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.

It's worth noting that, even with this upgrade, Apple isn't at the very cutting edge of wireless charging rates. Still, 7.5W is faster than what you can get right now, so if you're buying your first Qi charging pad, check the box to make sure it outputs at least that much of a charge.

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.

In addition, there's also the factor that wireless charging usually requires you to place your phone on a charging pad, making it impossible to use and charge at the same time (unless you want to hover over your phone like a weirdo).
