iOS 11.2 goes live early, brings Apple Pay Cash, 7.5w wireless charging and date bug fix

Apple has officially released iOS 11.2 to all eligible Apple devices, including iPhone and iPad.

The update brings Apple Pay Cash as a new addition to the Apple Pay platform, 7.5-watt wireless charging capability for hard-ware capable devices and fixes a nasty bug that would send devices into a soft reset loop, making them barely usable.

The release appears to have come early to address the recently-reported “date bug” that makes springboard crash, leading to the reset loop.

Apple has encouraged users who face the problem to quickly update their software to iOS 11.2.
