IPhone X, 8 'fast' wireless chargers may be slower than Samsung

IPhone X, 8 'fast' wireless chargers may be slower than Samsung

The 10th anniversary iPhone, called iPhone X, is in more ways than one the most premium handset Apple has come up with since the inception of the iOS-running smartphone series. The cheapest Apple option is the 29W brick for the 12-inch MacBook, which costs $50, but any third-party USB Power Delivery-capable charger should work.

The Apple 29W USB-C power adapter and USB-C to Lightning cable you'd need to fast charge the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.AppleThat's an extra $25 to $75 you have to spend to make full use of the new iPhones' fast charging feature on top of the new iPhones' already elevated price tags.

These are significantly more affordable than Apple's $159 AirPods, at $99.95, but they're also less "magical", sporting traditional cords and a Lightning connector for those times you'd rather listen to music than charge your iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus or X.

Craig Carton quits WFAN radio show
On Tuesday he had vowed to fight the charges, saying his fans would see he was not guilty and he'd be back "stronger than ever". Carton's attorney has previously said Carton " is a victim who was deceived, manipulated and used ".

The iPhone 8 does not have the Face ID feature of the X model, but it will allow wireless charging.

Those who own the new MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops that come with USB-C power adapters can use those to fast charge the new iPhones, too. It's also worth mentioning that the 61W and 87W Adapters cost $69 and $79, respectively.

This is not the first time that Apple is requiring this assembly for its products.

The 7.5-watt chargers would seem to confirm a rumor from August that Apple's wireless charging would be slower.

Not all of it is positive, of course, in regard to the X, 8, 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3 and even iPads and older iPhones.

It appears the iPhone X's fast-charging feature won't be supported by the device's primary features.
