It'll cost you though (and Apple are really testing fans' patience with this one). 9to5Mac first reported about this development.

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.

So, to take advantage of fast charging on one of the new iPhones, you'll need to buy both a Lightning-to-USB-C cable (Apple sells them for $25), and a USB-C Power Delivery-compatible charger.

Back in February, Apple joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), a group of companies promoting a wireless-charging standard called "Qi" that can be found in many Android phones available today.

In other news, Apple increases the pricing on Apple Care for larger devices with Plus models costing $149 instead of $129. It may not be the best looking accessory, but the iQi Mobile Qi charging receiver claims to enable wireless charging on your iPhone. This is still expected to be slower than the wired fast charging option. "As we have all become increasingly dependent on mobile devices, we now likely require to charge the battery a couple of times per day with the challenge of finding accessible power sources when on the go".

Second, there's always the topic of cases.

Recollecting some key specs, both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sports Retina HD displays with True Tone feature that adjust the white balance of the display to match the surrounding light for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience. 1,100 locations are now available in the United Kingdom, with more coming also in Europe, US and rest of the World.

The Wireless Power Consortium has its Aircharge app, which is created to help you find nearby charging hotspots to pop into when you're app is low. "Compare that to the 7, which measures 5.45" long, 2.64" wide, and 0.28 thick.

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.

The highly-anticipated X model comes with all the main features that were rumored including no home button and a full-screen interface. 5 volts times 2 amps equals 10 watts, and that's what virtually every tablet uses, as well as numerous larger smartphones. What's more, the vertically designed camera will need a new slot in the back to fit. It is set to hit the store shelves next year.
