When they say "faster wireless charging" they mean at max speeds of 7.5W from the current 4.8W. The regular lightning usb plug that comes with iphones is 5W.
The Ipad chargers are 12W and you can even get faster USBC plugs but not sure if there is that much difference in speeds from 12W to 29W plugs.
Looking for the officially approved for fast charging label.There are currently two Apple approved wireless chargers, the Mophie Wireless Charging Base and Belkin Boost Up. Both will support Fast Charging when it's enabled in a later iOS update.
There are other chargers out there as well, some of which also support Fast Charging, but they aren't officially approved.
Yep, not good for much other than overnight charging which is the way I charge 90 percent of the time.The fastest way to wirelessly charge an iPhone now is also the slowest way - at 5W.
You made a valid point. I got the Spigen Wireless stand for charging overnight.I got one from amazon a standard 5w wireless charger since I will only use it over night charging. I don’t think fast charge is worth it at 7.5w lol. You better off using the iPad charger at 12w. I’ve been using that with my 7 and it is more than twice as fast the regular charger iPhone comes with. The Morphie and Belkin at $50 is just not worth it even when iOS is updated with fast charge. There are other fast charge wireless chargers in amazon that cost half of that.
Interesting, how much faster do you notice the charge going from a 12W charger to a 29W?I regularly use the Apple 29W USB-C charger with my iPhone 7, it charges fast but not any faster than the normal iPad adapter.
The iPhone 8/+ and X on the other hand do support fast charging from the 29W adapter. So that, while not being wireless will be the fastest way to charge the phone.
When you plug in to a computers USB port its the slowest charge.Just curious, but what wattage does a computer use? At work I usually have a lightning cable plugged in, and just curious if it would use "fast charging" once enabled by Apple.
Good to know! I have no issues charging at 5W, but I do have a wireless charger en route from Amazon for my desk that is 10W. Personally, it is not a big deal to me at all, when I am in the office I barely ever need a charge, and if I am home I am usually charging it for the night.When you plug in to a computers USB port its the slowest charge.
5w I believe.
Unless you install a hack on that computer.
ASUS Ai Charger
Asus Ai Charger is a tiny Windows utility that increases power in USB ports so you can charge your Apple devices without problems. It is compatible with all PCs, but its performance is higher with Asus motherboards.

I heard the difference is very minimal.
