Your iPhone 15 Could Charge Faster Than Any Other iPhone
If you pick up a new iPhone this fall you could benefit from improved charging speeds, although it isn’t immediately clear which models will offer the new feature.
Apple’s current iPhone 14 models are limited to 20W while the iPhone 14 Pro models are limited to 27W, but a new report suggests that at least some iPhone 15 models are going to up the ante, increasing the maximum charging speed to 35W.
9to5Mac cites unnamed industry sources when making the claim, however, it also notes that it isn’t known whether the 35W charging capabilities will be exclusively available on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. If that’s the case, those buying an iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Plus will have to make do with slower charging speeds.
Industry sources told 9to5Mac that at least some of the new iPhone 15 models can be recharged with up to 35W, which should enable even faster charging speeds on the new phones. Currently, the iPhone 14 Pro is limited to charging at 27W, while the regular iPhone 14 is limited to 20W. To fully recharge an iPhone 14 Pro Max at these speeds, it takes approximately two hours.
Apple of course doesn’t ship a charger with any new iPhone, so buyers may need to upgrade to a new one at extra expense if they want to get the best out of their iPhone’s charging capabilities come release day.
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhones at an event on September 12 or 13, so we might learn more about the charging situation then.
