    OP: Do keep us informed. You can periodically check the WPC website and either A) keep telling us it isn't certified until it is or B) tell us when it is. I'd prefer option B.

    so what? does anyone really care if an iPhone is "qi certified"? it's more important for qi enabled devices to be 'apple certified'

    After reading @Knightcastle 's reddit manifesto I got the impression it was very important to them. However they have deemed this new revelation unimportant and not worth acknowledgement. Seeing as they recently logged on without comment...

    Perhaps. I'm glad that my iPhone X is Qi certified but I still have limited options when it comes to fast charging.
    The official ones are many times more expansive than the generic ones.

    If you want fast charging use the cable.

    Apple put these coils in the X and we want them out! They must be for another purpose. Maybe they are coiling our brains and stealing our DNA?

    Happen to remember the release date? That’s a pretty good theory. Maybe it had to do with the fast charging update and Apple was avoiding recertification?

    Mods belay request. Still open for discussion.

    Hi.

    I log on to read the news and often neglect the forums. As I’m on mobile I don’t see that I’ve got MR notifications and hadn’t seen these posts until now. I had replied to someone on Reddit who also pointed it out.

    I’ve always said it’s likely an oversight and likely to be rectified and sure enough it has been. I’m glad. I think it’s important that you adhere to the standards that you hold others accountable to.

    I would be interested to know why there was a delay but I’m sure it’s merely administrative and that most would find it boring.

    He's alive!

    Likely just a delay. There was also an announcement at CES about Powermat adopting the Qi standard. Perhaps they were waiting to make this announcement before certifying any new products?

    What I want to know is why all 7.5 Qi chargers are not equal. If they are certified... any Qi certified charger should work with Qi certified phones. But that doesn't seem to be the case with fast charging.

    I was under the impression that all 7.5W chargers were created equal and if you paired up a 7.5W transmitter with a 7.5W receiver you would receive fast charging with nothing else required.

    Interestingly I notice on the WPC website they list the iPhone 8 & iPhone X as being able to receive only 5W of power, and I can’t find a “fast charger” on their site that does (in their eyes) offer 7.5W of power - not sure what that’s all about.
