  • iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

Apple's iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are about to get a little bit quicker about it, though, with the release of iOS 11.2. Samsung's $50 9-watt charging pad, as well as RavPower's $50 10-watt charging pad both support even faster charging speeds, and are compatible with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X due to the Qi wireless charging standard used in smartphones. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable.

Not every wireless charging pad supports the faster 7.5-watt charging rate, meaning you might need to shell out for a new model if you want to take advantage of faster speeds. Now, according to a tip sent to MacRumors from a wireless pad manufacturer, it looks like iOS 11.2 is that update. This means that you can go ahead and pick one of the many compatible charging mats out there to make use of this wireless technology.

IEA oil demand forecast scaled back
Global demand is forecast to be 30 percent higher by 2040, but still half as much as it would be without efficiency improvements. But the oil market isn't tightening as quickly as once anticipated, the IEA said in its monthly oil-market report.


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.

Wireless charging on the latest iPhone is convenient, but it hasn't been very fast. 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.
