Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 models could benefit from faster-charging speeds up to 35W, thanks to the transition to USB-C, says 9to5Mac. The website says industry sources tell it that “at least some” of the new iPhone 15 lineup will be able to charge at a higher wattage.
Apple’s current iPhone 14 models can charge at a maximum rate of around 27W, Pro models can charge a bit faster. An increase to 35W would be a nice boost in charging speeds.
Apple, which no longer provides a charger in the box with the iPhone, recommends a 20W+ charger for fast charging purposes right now. If new iPhone 15 models offer support for 35W charging, Apple could begin recommending a 30W or 35W charger to reach maximum charging speeds.
In March, Apple industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said iPhone 15 models would support faster charging speeds, due to the iPhone 15 lineup’s use of USB-C for charging. However, Kuo also said that users will only see faster charging speeds when also using Apple-certified USB-C cables and chargers.
