Apple leaked a 35W dual USB-C power adapter for iPhones and AirPods


Incomparably superior than the existing model

The iPhone 13 does not come with a power adapter, but you may purchase a 20W or 30W one from Apple if necessary. A new 35W brick featuring not one, but two USB-C connections seems to be on its way to replace these outdated models.

This was discovered by 9to5Mac(opens in new tab) in an official Apple support document that has since been deleted. An “Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter” is mentioned and the two USB-C ports on the power brick are referred to in the description


Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known Apple analyst, tweeted last month that Apple was preparing a new GaN (gallium nitride) charger to be released later this year.

The people have the upper hand.

Newcomers to GaN charging technology may not be aware of how close the technology has been over the last several years to being widely used. By using gallium nitride instead of silicon, the charger is able to properly deal with heat.

For Apple, this implies its next power brick might be substantially smaller than the official versions now on the market since its components can be packed closer together without risking their safety.


Multiple devices may now be charged simultaneously thanks to the additional connector and increased charging power of 35W. To keep your Apple Watch or AirPods charged, for example, the iPhone 13 Pro Max can charge at a rate of up to 27W.

Insights: Apple is still catching up with competitors.

It’s important to note that 9to5Mac notes that “it’s also conceivable that it has been cancelled completely” because of the uncertainty of when this charger will be released. Under any case, the existence of an official support document suggests that the product was once in development.

Even yet, it’s evident that when it comes to battery and charging technologies, Apple is still a long way behind its competition. There are now Android phones with 120W charging rates, whereas Apple’s finest iPhone can only charge at 27W. What a change!


In terms of charging speed, Apple’s power bricks are on par with its products, which is to say, unimpressive. As a first step, Apple is now included a 140W GaN charger with the newest MacBook Pro models.

It’s one of those places where Apple appears satisfied to take its time developing and honing the technology, like in-screen fingerprint sensors. We don’t believe it will be long until Apple offers a new charging adaptor for iPhones, AirPods, and other devices, based on speculations and leaks.
