Improved Wireless Charging Coming With iOS 11.2

Improved Wireless Charging Coming With iOS 11.2

According to the technology new website RedmondPie, KeenLab has successfully cracked the iPhone X. Liang Chen of KeenLab has demonstrated a functional jailbreak for Apple's latest flagship - iPhone X. The jailbreak was demoed at POC 2017 event in Seoul, South Korea, on an iPhone X that was running the recently released iOS 11.1.1 patch.

In case you were wondering which version of iOS will enable 7.5 watts of fast wireless charging on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, now you know. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable. Our favorite wireless charger for the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus indeed supports 7.5W charging. That's because the current implementation maxes out at 5W, even though the Qi standard itself will handle more power with compatible chargers.

Just as when Apple fans thought the problems with the iOS 11 couldn't get any worse, reports that the Youtube iOS app is causing battery drain shows up.

The new Emirates suite is actually inspired by Mercedes-Benz and its iconic S-Class luxury sedan, the airline said. The "zero-gravity" position inspired by NASA technology, giving a feeling of relaxation and weightlessness.

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.

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. Users simply have to go to Settings, tap on the option General, then tap on Software Update and if the device is registered as part of Apple's beta program, then simply unroll the device. That requires a compatible smartphone, of course, and not all charging pads are compliant with that maximum rate.
