iPhone X iOS 11.1.1 gets jailbroken

In case you were wondering which version of iOS will enable 7.5 watts of fast wireless charging on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, now you know.

Low Feed Costs Boost Tyson Foods Q4 Results
Zacks Investment Research cut shares of Tyson Foods from a buy rating to a hold rating in a report on Friday, October 28th. RBC Capital Markets maintained it with "Sector Perform" rating and $68 target in Tuesday, November 22 report.

Kimmel jokingly asked, " People tweeted mean things about me?", as if he'd never been on the Internet before. Also amusing was when Chris Hemsworth mixed up the name of the Greek god "Hephaestus" with "hepatitis".

The smartphones, which can charge wirelessly with Qi-based accessories like the Belkin and Mophie pads, will be able to charge at 7.5 watts with iOS 11.2. On a non-7.5W charger, the same period of time only saw the phone charge from 46-percent to 60-percent. Although the added support for 7.5W Qi charging won't introduce a dramatically quicker wireless charging experience, the evidence points out that users should expect marginally improved charging speeds. 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).
