Wireless Charging Is Going To Get Way Better

Wireless Charging will help us ditch charging cables

Goodbye charging cables, hello to a much better Wireless Charging! Always in the need to charge but doesn’t want to spend the time on the sofa while using it? Well, wireless charging is the answer to that. Imagine, no need to deal and have to fight with your charging cable? Just simply place it on the charging pad then you’re good to go! It really sounds fascinating and this is the new charging experience

Although, it has been around for some years now, it’s struggled with mass adoption. For the most part, the gadgets you can buy are a bit bulky aftermarket cases. Or some charging pads only work with one or two major standards.

But the good news, these barriers to a wireless charging world are falling apart. And advances to the state of wireless charging are bringing us closer to a cord-free charging life than before. But how can that happen? By doubling today’s wireless charging pad speeds and separately charging phones over the air.

The company Powermat is on the move. They’re working on a new wireless charging standard that can power up phones more than 2.5 times faster. Today, we’re only at the maximum 15-watt output but time will come, we’ll be able to have a 40-watt output. But seeing those faster speeds will really take time. “When we talk about the next generation, we’re talking about 30 watts [of power]”, said by Powermat’s product VP, Aya Kantor. Although it’s not 40, that’s still good enough to charge your phone from 0-100% in just 25 minutes!

Now, about charging at a distance, companies such as Energous’ Mid-field WattUP are going to make it happen. They’re starting to bring over-the-air wireless charging to a lot of devices. Not just your smartphone, which means you may also charge laptops, smartwatches, earpods, fitness band and so much more. As long as it is a paired device, within range and in need of a top-up.

So, until wireless charging pad speeds double up and over-the-air chargers arrive. Then I think we just have to stick around with cables or bulky cases for now.

Cupertino-based Apple Inc. has released recently the iOS 11. 2 update . The latest update brings bug fixes and wireless charging. But there’s more to this update, Apple brings also the Apple Pay Cash.

In addition to wireless charging, the iOS 11.2 update has an “autocorrect” feature, an issue that users encountered as a problem earlier. For instance, some users claim that the default keyboard would change “it” into “I.T.”

Hence, Apple users expect that iOS 11.2 will fix the autocorrect issue. Aside from this, users noticed that in iOS 11, the Wifi and Bluetooth icons could not be disabled easily.

Apple, in a statement, said the Wifi and Bluetooth feature that does not able was intently done for a purpose.

The Cupertino-based company claims that it does not disable features so that users can connect to their Apple devices.

Should you upgrade?

Given the Apple iOS 11.2 update, this begs the question if you should upgrade or not?  The reason why is that the iOS update comes in varied sizes, depending on the device.

What is clear, however, is the iOS update is roughly 400 MB. Large as it may seem, Apple users will have a remarkable experience in terms of speed and stability of the mobile OS.
