A Chinese publisher NewsMyDrivers claims that for iPhone 13 series, Apple will increase the charging power to 25W. Apple recently launched a $99 MagSafe Battery Pack for iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models.
For iPhone 12 series, the company sells a 20W USB-C power adapter separately for $19.00 that charges the smartphone up to 50% in 30 minutes. In addition, the company also sells a 30W USB-C power adapter for $49.00 and an Anker Ultra-Compact 30W USB-C power delivery wall charger for $49.95.
Would the rumored 25W power adaptor deliver faster charging than the 20W adapter?
As per the report, Apple has removed 18W charging brick from the shelf and is only selling 20W power adapter for 149 yuan ($22.99). And if the company introduced a slightly powerful 25W brick it will retail for a higher price tag than the 20W brick.
However, it is not expected that the charging speed of the new brick would be much different from the 20W power adaptor.
The fast charging head currently on sale on Apple’s official website is 20W, and the charging speed is minimal compared to the previous 18W fast charging head. Although Apple has increased the charging power to 25W this time, the charging speed should not change much.
The Pro models of the upcoming series are reported to have an LTPO OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and always-on display which can power-consuming. In addition, the new series will have larger batteries, and LiDAR scanners. So, in that case, a slight power boost would be helpful for users with bigger models to charge the iPhones faster.
Other reports claim that the new iPhone series will be powered by an A15 Bionic chip, offer up to 1TB storage, WiFi 6 network support, image stabilization sensor across the series, a larger camera module in iPhone 13 Pro models, and more.
