Apple Pay Cash now available
Apple has just released iOS 11.2 with support for faster wireless charging, video camera stabilization, Apple Pay Cash, as well as a fix for the autocorrect bug that has been recently discovered.

Although iOS 11.1.1 solved the latest autocorrect bug that was discovered in Apple's mobile operating system, another one surfaced in the meantime. Fortunately, Apple took care of it in a timely manner and included the patch in iOS 11.2, next to a few more improvements and new features.

According to the official changelog, these are the highlights of iOS 11.2:

  • video camera stabilization
  • three new Live wallpapers for the iPhone X
  • faster wireless charging for the iPhone 8/8 Plus and the iPhone X with third-party accessories (previously limited to 5 W charging even when capable to provide 7.5 W)
  • Apple Pay Cash for sending/requesting/receiving money with Apple Pay in Messages or by asking Siri (feature available in the US only)
  • fix for the latest autocorrect bug ("it" changing into "I.T." for no reason when using the default iOS keyboard)
  • better WiFi and Bluetooth indications
  • updated emojis

Obviously, all the above come in addition to the usual bunch of minor tweaks and fixes included by such updates. For now, Apple has not refreshed macOS, tvOS, and watchOS yet, but they will probably get updated this week as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
