Apple has released iOS 11.2 for all compatible iPhone, iPad, iPod touch models. Amongst the list of new features, the new iOS platform focuses on Apple Pay Cash and faster wireless charging support for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. 

While the iOS 11.2 update was originally expected to arrive in the third week of December, Apple has decided to priorities and bring the release quicker to fix the date bug that had brought various iPhone and iPad models.

  • The issue, as reported by several users on Reddit and Twitter, was found to be causing repeated crashes especially when you use apps accessing local notifications. 

The Apply Pay Cash feature is integrated into the native Messages app, which allows you to send, request, and receive money from your contacts through a message. The iOS update also brings the anticipated faster wireless charging to the new iPhone models with compatible third-party accessories. It mainly enables 7.5W support to make wireless charging speedier.

The iOS 11.2 update also includes three new Live wallpapers for the iPhone X and improves video camera stabilisation.
