How To Charge Your IPhone Faster
- May 29, 2018 -

This one’s easy. If you’ve upgraded your iPhone to iOS 11.2—and there’s no reason not to, unless you have an older device that simply can’t—you’ll now be able to enjoy 7.5W wireless charging on your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. (That’s a 2.5W increase over pre-iOS 11.2 devices.)

 

So, when you’re looking for a Qi-compatible wireless charger, make sure it can output at least 7.5W for an iPhone. (Some can output 10W, but will note in tiny print that only 10W is supported on Android devices and everything else gets 5W.)

 

You can always get a wireless charger that does more, but you’ll be future-proofing. Your iPhone can only charge so quickly, much like how plugging your device into a 87W USB-C Power Adapter won’t make it charge any faster than the 29W Power Adapter.
