Fast-Charge Feature speeds up charging of iPhone 8 and iPhone X
Although this thing was not mentioned on the stage of the event of yesterday, it is true that both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X are “fast-charge capable,” this means that the two devices can be charged to about 50 percent battery life in just 30 minutes.
Unluckily, that fast-charging feature cannot be utilized using accessories that are sold together with the two devices. In order to charge at such a high level, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X are needed to be plugged into the 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapters of Apple, which are only sold with its USB-C MacBook and MacBook Pro models.
The USB-C Power Adapter that costs the least is the 29W version for the MacBook, the price tag of which stands at $49. For the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the 61W USB-C Power Adapter comes at $69, and for the 15-inch MacBook Pro, the 87W USB-C Power Adapter cost is $79.
To work together with the USB-C Power Adapter, a USB-C to Lightning Cable is also needed. 1-meter cable comes at $25 and 2-meter cable costs $35.
All these things mean that the most inexpensive solution for fast charging is going to charge iPhone owners an extra $74.
Both the devices i.e., iPhone X and iPhone 8 also allow wireless charging by using wireless charging accessories which are Qi-compatible. Product listings say that high-speed wireless charging up to 7.5 watts will be supported through an update which is coming later this year, but it will not be able to match the fast-charging speeds offered through the USB-C power adapter.
Now talking about the battery life, the iPhone X gives two hours of battery life extra than the iPhone 7, whereas the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus continue to give the same battery life.
