Apple Support Document Indicates New Two-Port 35W USB-C Charger on the Way

Apple is apparently planning to release a new two-port 35W USB-C charger in the near future. The new charger is seen in a leaked support document that was found and shared by 9to5Mac. The document was apparently available on Apple’s website for a short time. (The charger shown above is a current model Apple charger.)

A 35W charger would charge or power a variety of Apple devices, including iPhones, iPads, the MacBook Air, and more. The charger would be powerful enough to provide fast charging.

The power adapter will support 5VDC/3A or 9VDC/3A or 15VDC/2.33A or 20VDC/1.75A, and it will provide 35W of total charging power, not 35W for each USB-C port. USB-C cables are not included.

Use the Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter and a USB-C cable (not included) to charge your device. Connect a USB-C cable to either port on the power adapter, extend the electrical prongs (if necessary), then plug the power adapter firmly into the power outlet. Ensure the power outlet is easily accessible for disconnecting. Connect the other end of the cable to your device.

While we don’t know for sure when the accessory will launch. However, it could be the GaN power adapter that Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned in early March. Kuo said Apple has a 30W power adapter in the works, that boasts a new form factor design. Kup said the new charger will debut sometime during 2022

There is no word on when this accessory might launch, but it could possibly be the GaN power adapter that Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple was working on in early March. Kuo said that Apple is working on a “30W power adapter” that has a new form factor design, with the company planning to introduce it at some point in 2022.

He said that the charger will use gallium nitride or “GaN” technology, allowing for a smaller, lighter form factor because of improved power efficiency. Apple’s first GaN charger (140W) launched last year alongside the MacBook Pro.

Other accessory companies like Anker and Belkin have been making GaN chargers for some time now, and they offer several multi-port options.
