YouTube App Causing Battery Drain On iOS 11

YouTube App Causing Battery Drain On iOS 11

As MacRumors points out, an iPhone X running the iOS 11.2 beta got charged from 46% to 66% by a 7.5W Belkin wireless charger in about 30 minutes.

Techs at MR tested the functionality with the public beta version of 11.2 and an iPhone X, verifying that that it did indeed charge faster on a 7.5W charger than a 5W equivalent. Updating your phone isn't enough to boost your charging speed, however. However, Apple also revealed that its smartphone lineup will support up to 7.5-watts of fast wireless charging too.

The new, higher speed of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X doesn't quite put them as high as the competition from Samsung (which can reach 15W through a supported charger) but it may turn out that in practice they'll charge equally fast. A number of users of the app have reported problems with the battery on their device draining whilst using the app. Users are reporting problems with the app on both the iPhone and iPad.

It's worth noting that, even with this upgrade, Apple isn't at the very cutting edge of wireless charging rates. According to a new report, the iOS 11.2 update will help the latest iPhone devices to charge at 7.5 watts when placed on a compatible Qi-based wireless charging pad.

Since iOS 11.2 is now in beta, available to developers and those enrolled in Apple's public beta, tests on the upgraded charging speeds have already been possible.
