It’s highly likely that Apple will adopt USB-C charging for future iPhones, and there’s a rumor suggesting that certain iPhone 15 models could support 35W charging, significantly reducing recharge times.
Numerous leaks suggest that Apple is planning to adopt USB-C charging for the iPhone 15, possibly in response to upcoming EU regulations. Additionally, there are reports of significantly improved data transfer speeds with this change. Furthermore, there’s speculation that the iPhone 15 Pro models might support charging speeds of up to 35W, which is a notable increase compared to the current maximum charging speed achievable with a wired Lightning connection rather than Qi wireless charging.

According to unconfirmed reports from unspecified 9to5mac sources, Apple supposedly introduced a dual USB-C charger with a 35W output in 2022. However, the details are scarce, and the rumor doesn’t definitively state whether this faster charging will be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro models. It’s worth noting that a similar rumor emerged in August 2022, suggesting that the upcoming iPhone 14 would support 30W fast charging.
