I hope everything is OK with your son, Dave.
I wonder how many regional differences there are.Wireless charging is not an option anymore with the Nov. update.
Has been confirmed by CS.
Ah, thanks for confirming. That's half an hour of my life I won't get back searching. Wonder what else disappeared then, as there were other settings on that screen.Sorry, bad wording. The charging is still there, but it's not an option anymore, i.e. it is always enabled. The menu entry to turn it on and off has been scraped.
Wireless charging actually became more stable and consistent with the Nov. update.
They do, but a lot of it is stuff like "Leap into a grand adventure of dragons, magic and cats in purr-suit of the evil Drakoth and your catnapped sister" or making it so you can do fart noises through the AVAS speaker at passing pedestrians.I guess Elon doesn't provide an update log every time OTA updates happen, or does he? seems like it would be a normal thing to do with software updates (he says, as an IT/software provider...).
From my understanding the USB's are all 5A which is "fast", with the exception of the one in the front with a white ring around it, which I believe is 2A or less. So don't use the front USB with a White Circle around it.Ah, sounds about right. I don't have a great deal of time for their crappy products tbh.
My Pixel 3 charges fine via a cable, though a fast charger would be good.
Glad to see lockdown isn't preventing you from letting your hair downI've tested them with an iPad Pro (which supports 30W charging). They wont negotiate higher than 5V though which means the maximum charge power is 15W (3A).
However, I got less than that. It's possible the iPad itself doesn't support drawing more than 2.4A at 5V. I don't have any other beefy devices to test.
With both my iPad (USB-C > USB-C) and my iPhone 12 (USB-C > Lightning), the white one was 2A (10W) and the other three were 2.4A (12W)
The white one negotiated an Apple charging protocol, the other three were USB-C PD.
