“Apple has added support for faster 7.5W wireless charging in its latest iOS 11.2 beta,” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Mac. “iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X all support the increased charging speed.”
“Earlier versions of iOS 11 allowed iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X to charge wirelessly at 5W,” Bell reports. “In iOS 11.2, however, Apple has bumped that up to 7.5W. It’s not a groundbreaking difference, but you will certainly welcome the improvement.”
