We Tested 5 Wireless Chargers for the iPhone and This is the Best

A few weeks ago, I tested almost every one of Apple’s wired charging solutions to find out which one was best. Job done, right? Well not quite, because this year’s crop of iPhone’s are Apple’s first handsets to have built-in wireless charging too!

So to figure out what’s really going on, we tested a range of wireless chargers to see how much cable-free charging you’re really getting for your money. And don’t worry, in the process we found one that stands well above all the rest. Read More >>

Apple Reportedly Made Face ID Less Accurate to Speed Up iPhone X Production

Bloomberg just published an enlightening update on the never-ending saga of iPhone X delays. The report claims that Apple “quietly told suppliers they could reduce the accuracy of the [iPhone X] face-recognition technology to make it easier to manufacture.” We don’t yet know how much worse it will be, but the claim that Apple is skimping on quality in order to meet customer demand is a bit of a bombshell.

Apple’s Revealed Which Third Party Chargers Will Support Fast Charging
