iOS 11.2 is currently in beta, and will be released to all iPhone and iPad users in the coming weeks, and one of the key features for iPhone 8/8 Plus/X owners is accelerated wireless charging. Previously, all wireless charging was limited to 5W, but this update will raise that limit to 7.5W. That’s a 50% increase in power on paper, but I had to know what the real world difference was.
Yes, yes I did try to charge my iPhone with a wired and wireless charger at the same time. This is how it went.
I’ve already compared the photos and videos that the Google Pixel 2 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus can produce, but those test were all in good conditions. the sun was out! Both cameras did well in those conditions, but maybe we can get some more difference in their performance when we go out and take one photos at night!
Maybe there are conditions where HEIC and JPEG show a noticeable difference, but I haven’t seen it in this post, and I haven’t noticed being disappointed in HEIC yet.
One of the big reasons I got a Pixel 2 this year is because of the camera. I already own an iPhone 8 Plus, which has a truly spectacular camera, but the Pixel 2 is supposed to be no slouch either. Let’s take a look at a few comparison shots I took over my walks around the neighborhood this past week.
