A fresh rumor says that the iPhone 14 series will support 30W fast charging, which is a substantial upgrade from the iPhone 13 series’ 20W rating.
Reports claim that an unknown charger manufacturer is providing 30W iPhone 14 adapters to the press in exchange for early access and reviews, lending credence to the rumors. This organization thinks Apple will promote 30W charging as a feature of the iPhone 14 series.
It’s not completely out of the question, even though there are no visuals or links to support this leak. For a limited time during testing, the iPhone 13 Pro Max supported 27W charging, suggesting that 30W support is feasible.
As of now, an iPhone 8 or later plugged into an 18W PD USB-C wall converter will charge to 50% capacity in 30 minutes. Fast charging at 20W is supported by the iPhone 12, and later generations.
This time might be drastically reduced with a 30W charger, however, the additional heat generated would be quite uncomfortable. More power means a faster charge time, especially for a small battery like the one in an iPhone. However, this results in increased temperature, decreased efficiency, and accelerated battery discharge.
Whether or not the 30W charging would be exclusive to iPhone 14 Pro versions is unclear. One such limiting factor could be the battery size, with only “max” models being eligible for the feature.
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.

Two 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapters were produced by Apple not too long ago, allowing users to charge their MacBook Air and iPhone at the same time.
These chargers were previously thought to be the anticipated 30W charger arriving in 2022, but this new rumor suggests Apple may be working on yet another GaN charger. On September 7, Apple is rumored to have an event where they would reveal their iPhone 14 lineup.
The Twitter user DuanRui, who has a checkered leaking past, leaked the information. His information comes from the Chinese supply chain and is widely disseminated on the popular Chinese microblogging service Weibo.
