iPhone 14 lineup could support 30W charging, according to a new leak

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 14 lineup is expected to be announced at its upcoming fall 2022 event “Far Out,” which will take place on September 7. Ahead of the event, a new leak suggests the lineup could support 30W charging.

30W charging capability could be added to Apple’s upcoming flagship iPhone

According to leaker @duanrui1205 on Twitter, a charger brand is sending 30W chargers to the media suggesting that 30W fast charging will be added to the iPhone 14 lineup.

The iPhone 14 Pro series may use 30W charging power? Recently, a charger brand began to send new charger products to the media, and it will advertise in the experience video of the iPhone 14 series.
While the leak does not have much support in terms of substance, it is not entirely impossible. Earlier in August, a leaker said that the iPhone 14 lineup would support 30W charging. However, customers will likely have to buy a new 30W charger as Apple is unlikely to include it in the box. The 30W charging speed will also drop down to 25-27W after the first bit of the charge cycle.

Even if Apple added 30W fast charging to the iPhone 14 series, note that the 30W fast charging speed only applies to wired charging. Wireless and MagSafe charging will still see limited speeds at 7.5W and 15W, respectively. It is also possible that 30W fast charging will only be added to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

This year’s standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are set to feature the same design as their predecessor with the same A15 chip. On the other hand, the Pro models are expected to get the A16 chip, a pill + hole punch cutout for the display, and major camera upgrades. All models are expected to feature 6GB of RAM. As for the internal storage of the device, there are some conflicting reports about whether it will start from 128GB or 256GB, given the price hike.

In addition to this, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have reported that the Pro models will feature an upgraded front camera. As revealed by Kuo, the front camera will feature autofocus which will offer sharper images and improved picture quality.
