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.
The latest test version of iOS 11.2, due for public release by the end of the year, offers 7.5 Watts of charging power, compared with 5W in iOS 11.1.1. In MacRumors' trial, the iPhone X running iOS 11.2 on a Belkin 7.5W wireless charger took thirty minutes to go from 46-percent to 66-percent.
The Apple news blog received a tip about the new feature from accessory maker RAVpower, and confirmed the news by actually testing it. On a non-7.5W charger, the same period of time only saw the phone charge from 46-percent to 60-percent.
If you're about to buy wireless chargers for the iPhone, make sure they support at least 7.5W speeds. 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.
A few weeks ago, we learned that the three iPhones that support wireless charging out of the box will get even faster charging speeds in the near future, via a software update.
