Qi2 Charging Support Will Come To iPhone 13 And iPhone 14 With iOS 17.2

Apple’s iOS 17.2 update is now being tested with developers after the company shared the first release candidate version this week.

Now, the release notes for that update have confirmed that support for the Qi2 wireless charging standard is coming to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14.

The new Qi2 charging standard is already supported by the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models but it now appears that it is also coming to the older iPhones within a matter of weeks.

The Qi2 wireless charging standard is similar to MagSafe and allows magnetic wireless chargers to be used with multiple devices. It also means that charger and accessory makers won’t have to pay Apple to license MagSafe for their wares, instead allowing them to make Qi-2 compatible accessories.

The Qi2 standard supports 15W wireless charging, like MagSafe, but it isn’t yet clear whether Apple will support that speed or not.

As for when iOS 17,2 is going to be released, Apple is yet to confirm that but the expectation is that it will arrive before Christmas. Apple could release another RC version next week, but it’s also possible that the update will be rolled out to the public if there are no issues discovered between now and then.

The iOS 17.2 update brings with it a number of features including the new Journal app that helps people to be more mindful by recommending things that they might like to journal about.
