Sources report new information about Apple’s future flagship iPhone 15. This time, the leak reveals the wireless charging power of smartphones.
What to expect
According to ChargerLAB, a trusted source for charging information, the upcoming Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models will support the new Qi2 wireless charging standard. It is based on the Apple MagSafe standard.
And this means that, most likely, Qi2 chargers (even from third-party manufacturers) will be able to charge smartphones at full power – 15 W, like MagSafe.
For comparison, the current models (iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14) are charged with a maximum power of 15 W only from stations certified under the MFM (Made for MagSafe) program. If you connect other chargers to them, the charging speed will be limited to 7.5 watts.
The wholesale price of the Apple MagSafe module is around $16, the source said, while the Qi2 module appears to cost less than a third of that price. That is, it will allow to bring to the market more affordable chargers like MagSafe.
