YouTube App Causing Battery Drain On iOS 11

One particular feature that is just now being exploited by the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X is wireless charging.

With the announcement of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, Apple also revealed that its new smartphones support the Qi Wireless charging standard. However, while convenient, it did have some drawbacks compared to plugging in an old-fashioned Lighting cable.

Head's up. If your all-new Apple iPhone 8 is experiencing rapid battery drain and battery overheating, you may want to stop utilizing the YouTube application.

It looks like there is a problem with Google's YouTube app on Apple's iOS 11.

According to MacRumors, the 11.2 update will bring support for Qi wireless charging at a rate of 7.5 watts, an improvement over the current 5-watt limit allowed by iOS 11.1.1.

Up until iOS 11.1 the Qi-enabled iPhones could charge wirelessly by up to 5W and after 11.2 they can go as high as 7.5W - this was divulged by accessory maker RAVpower. Still, if you're a supporter of wireless charging, faster charging speeds can only encourage you to embrace the cable-free future (and will probably get you to stop fiddling with your phone). The charger, which is sold by Apple, supports charging at 7.5 watts and was able to charge the iPhone X from 46 to 66 percent in 30 minutes. That requires a compatible smartphone, of course, and not all charging pads are compliant with that maximum rate.
