    If your phone is charging 7% per minute that’s ridiculously fast.

    You say per minute here and every 15 minutes on your only other post

    You need to correct one--

    Yeah, I'm hoping he means per hour, because I have the same wireless charger and I'm not getting anywhere near 7% per minute (although I am getting WAY better than 7% per hour).

    You need to make sure the wireless charger is connected to a USB wall charger with at least 7.5W power output (e.g. 5V/1.5A min.).

    Other factors may also affect charging efficiency such as using a protective case on your phone.

    Depending on what tests you look at you’re either not far off the mark, or a little bit slow.
    Either way though wireless charging, even at 7.5W, which offers minimal improvement over 5W in real world testing. Isn’t your best option if speed is your concern. It’s fine for overnight charging and top-ups throughout the day but beyond that, if you want speed, use a wired charger.

    Helpful tip - next time let folk know you're running a beta when posting about a potential issue here!

    Beta versions are not set in stone and can have odd issues, some totally unreproducible by others. These are the inherent risks in running a beta.

    I didn’t realise you were on the beta, regardless I’m in the same beta and seeing similar charging rates myself.

    To be fair it does seem to vary a bit. Going from 0% - 30%(ish) charges at a higher rate, beyond that it seems to be varying degrees of diminishing returns.

    Until Apple adopts a more powerful wireless standard, it’s never going to be a viable option for getting a quick charge. I get a full charge from mine overnight with wireless and just plonk it on another wireless charger through the day when I can for a bit of a top-up. If I need juice fast, nothing compares to good old fashioned wired charging.

    If you don’t want to re-train your FaceID, you’re just going to have to ride it out until we go gold I’m afraid.

    It's not that they are that unstable, just that they are, by nature potentially unstable. Letting folk know you're on a beta when you post at least aligns expectations.

    One other thing to consider next time betas roll around, if you’re concerned with your battery life.

    The beta releases will always drain your battery faster. Partly because they have unfinished and potentially unstable code. And partly because they collect information in the background, crash reports, potential compatibility issues, you know all the usual debugging stuff.

    While it can be nice to get access to some of the features early, beta releases are really of more use to developers, so we can make sure our apps are compatible and don’t crash or have other issues come release day.

    Running the developer or public betas is really so Apple can collect as much information on how the software is running. You’re doing them a favour and saving them a lot of money by allowing them to have smaller test teams.
