Wireless iPhone charging is about to narrow the performance gap with wired charging, with iOS 11.2 set to speed up the tech on the iPhone X and iPhone 8. This will give users a small, but noticeable boost in charging speeds over current 5W charging levels.

With the announcement of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, Apple also revealed that its new smartphones support the Qi Wireless charging standard. However, it looks like Christmas has come early for those wanting faster Qi for their iPhone 8s and Xs. Although the added support for 7.5W Qi charging won't introduce a dramatically quicker wireless charging experience, the evidence points out that users should expect marginally improved charging speeds. On a non-7.5W charger, the same period of time only saw the phone charge from 46-percent to 60-percent.

When it comes to Apple's latest flagship smartphone, the iPhone X, it feels like in many respects, the company is catching up to features that have always been featured on Android devices. The Qi standard, now at v1.2, actually supports up to 15W being delivered.

Still, that ramp up to 7.5W is barely touching the current limits of the Qi wireless charging technology, which allows for up to 15W of power to be transmitted to compatible devices. That requires a compatible smartphone, of course, and not all charging pads are compliant with that maximum rate.
