    How long has it taken you to get used to the iPhone 8 plus?

    I got so used to one-handed use with my iPhone 5 but my thumb aches doing this with the 8 plus!

    Also, does iCloud back up work with wireless charging?

    Don’t forget you can use Reachability mode on the 8 Plus:

    As well as the one handed keyboard feature:

    As for backing up to iCloud whilst using “wireless”charging? Sure, so long as it’s locked and connected to Wi-Fi.

    Hope that helps OP.

    There has been reported issues with iCloud back up not working with wireless charging. How big a problem is unknown so what I would do is make sure your on the latest version of ios 11.1.2. Check in your settings when the phone last backed up after its been on the charging pad for a while.

    If you don't think its working then contact Apple support as I know you get 90 day complimentary support.

    https://getsupport.apple.com/?caller=psp&PRKEYS=PL133

    Once you select your issue which will end up not being listed and you will have to type it in you will be given option for a chat online or apple will call you.
