    It has a fast wireless charge, which will be enabled in a future software update.

    For cable charging, the best you can do is use a USB-C charger with a higher wattage: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208137

    No, not Qualcomm’s QC. They use USB C Power Delivery 3.0, like Nintendo Switch. The USB C port must support Power Delivery 3.0 for devices like iPhone and Nintendo Switch to use them, and iPhone only accepts this fast charge from a USB C to Lightning cable. It can only accept up to 12W from a USB A charger like the iPad brick

    It is actually already supposed to be enabled, however it is NOT Qualcomm Quickcharge. In order to quick charge, you have to buy 2 separate things. The Apple 29W charger AND the usb-c to lightening connector cable. Both will cost you a nice extra bit, so be prepared. I have one for my iPad Pro, and it is really worth it for that because it charges so much faster, but not really sure it will be necessary for the phone as the battery is so much smaller than the 12.9” iPad Pro.

    Of course Apple won't use Qualcomm's QuickCharge.
    His fast charge works, for example, by using an USB-C chargers for MacBook. with an Apple cable from USB-C to Lightning. You can also use an iPad 12W charger, but it won't as fast as USB-C chargers for MacBook.

    The charge that will be implemented via software update is the 7.5W wireless one, that now provides "only" 5W :)

    Slightly old version of my post :)

    But yes, it doesn’t support QC’s solution.

    Might as well wait for Airpower?

    I can't see Apple wanting to support Qualcomm anything with all the lawsuits going on.

    You don’t need the Apple wall charger. Any 3rd party 29w Wall Charger will work. I just got one for $18.99 that works great. But you do need the Apple usb c cable..

    You don’t need the Apple 29W charger. You can buy a third party cheaper charger. It just needs to support USB C Power Delivery 3.0, like Nintendo Switch. And it only needs to be 18W or higher to charge at full speed. It doesn’t need all 29W of the Apple charger.

    I'm sorry my understanding was there is no wireless fast charging, only the 29w usb-c to lightning cable solution, with the adapter HAS TO support USB power delivery. As for wireless, they said that PROBABLY 7.5w wireless charging will be enabled at a later date, but as far as I read, Qualcomm isn't supported, and how fast the 7.5w charging will actually be, no one knows for sure.
