New App Removes "Notch" From the iPhone X

'Notch Remover' is an app that gets rid of iPhone X's notch

In that update, the phones will accept 7.5-watt charges on Qi charging pads, rather than the current 5 watts. Using a non-7.5W wireless charger topped the same iPhone X from 46% to 60% in over 30 minutes, which speaks of marginal gains here and there, but gains nonetheless.

A few weeks ago, we learned that the three iPhones that support wireless charging out of the box will get even faster charging speeds in the near future, via a software update.

There is some confusion over exactly what Qi charging accessories can go above the 5w charging speeds. According to both of those manufacturers, only companies that partner with Apple (like them) will be able to be certified and have their Qi chargers take advantage of the 7.5w power output. Needless to say this charges their batteries faster and is overall a user-friendly trait that Apple will likely catch up on sometime in the future provided that the hardware inside the all-new trio of 2017 iPhones allows it. Apple has previously come under fire for the dangers posed by fake Apple chargers, so there is some precedent for them to be cautious here. This issue affects all devices running iOS 11, it's not just limited to the iPhone.

However, he became a declining force once he was reported for a suspect action and subsequently banned from bowling in late 2014. Returning from a suspension, Ajmal played two ODIs in Bangladesh in 2015 with a reworked action, but he failed to impress.

Of course, the benefits of "wireless" inductive charging are more to do with convenience than speed.

If you're interested, the Notch Remover is now available on the AppStore and it will cost you RM3.90.

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.
