Back in March analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple will introduce a 30W GaN charger this 12 months. Now leakster DuanRui stories that an unnamed brand name is sending out new 30W chargers to media stores for testing with the forthcoming Apple iphone 14 Professional collection.
Yet another leakster, Kioriku, reports that the 14 Professional and 14 Pro Max will only charge at 30W close to % and just before dropping down to 27-25W (that is how a usual charge curve operates). The current Iphone 13 Professional and 13 Professional Max cost at 23W and 27W, respectively, so this will be a relatively compact bump, unless Apple goes for a extra intense demand curve (doubtful).
Apple now sells many GaN chargers, which includes the 140W electric power brick for the new 16” MacBook Professionals and the 35W dual chargers that released together with the new M2 MacBook Air. On the other hand, those use USB C-to-C cables, when the Iphone 14 era will stick to Lights (the very last technology to do so, according to Kuo, thanks to new EU polices).
Also, we’re not holding out hope that Apple’s 30W GaN charger will be bundled with the Iphone 14 Pro and 14 Professional Max telephones, it will nearly absolutely be a different acquire. As for the 3rd-social gathering charger, it will appear with a USB-C to Lights cable.
