Apple may be planning to introduce a two-port 35W USB-C charger in the near future, based on a leaked support document that was found 9to5Mac, The support document was apparently only on Apple’s site for a short time, but there was a clear mention of the unreleased charger.
Apple’s current 30W power adapter
As there’s no dual USB-C port power adapter available right now, this could be something Apple has in the works. The 35W will charge or power a variety of Apple devices, from the MacBook Air to the iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch and HomePod. For iPhone and iPad, it will be powerful enough to accommodate fast charging.
The power adapter will support the following modes: 5VDC/3A or 9VDC/3A or 15VDC/2.33A or 20VDC/1.75A, and it will provide 35W of total charging power, not 35W for each USB-C port.
Use the Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port power adapter and USB-C cable (not included) to charge your device. Connect the USB-C cable to any port on the power adapter, extend the electrical prongs (if necessary), then plug the power adapter firmly into the power outlet. Make sure the power outlet is easily accessible to disconnect. Connect the other end of the cable to your device.
There’s no word on when this accessory might launch, but it could most likely be the GaN power adapter that Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple was working on in early March. Kuo said Apple is working on a “30W power adapter” that has a new form factor design, with the company planning to introduce it at some point in 2022.
He said the charger will use gallium nitride, or “GaN” technology, allowing for a smaller, lighter form factor due to better power efficiency. Apple’s first GaN charger (140W) was launched last year with the MacBook Pro.
Other subsidiaries such as Anker and Belkin have been making GaN chargers for some time now, and they offer several multi-port options.
