The rumors surrounding this fall’s iPhone models are increasing and the latest is that the wireless charging will be speeded up a bit in the new models, but those hoping for a big difference will be disappointed.
The undersigned has probably not loaded his phone with a charging cable of at least two years, but it is Qi charging on a standard charging pad or MagSafe that applies. If we charge a modern iPhone on a standard charging pad today, it can receive 7.5 watts at most. If we use a MagSafe charger, it increases to 15 watts. The iPhone 15 is rumored to support the new wireless standard Qi2 and this will mean that the phones will be able to receive 15 watts even if you do not use an Apple MagSafe charger.
Qi2 is based on Apple’s MagSafe but third-party chargers that support Qi2 will cost significantly less than a MagSafe charger from Apple. Sometime in September, Apple will show off the next generation iPhone.
