Apple may launch smaller and more powerful chargers for iPhones and Macs

THE Apple is among several technology companies with plans to launch GaN chargers this year, according to a new publication by Caifa News [Google Tradutor].

According to vehicle information, in addition to the Apple, Xiaomi, a Huawei, a Samsung and the Oppo have plans to develop power adapters with this technology, which can provide fast-charging solutions via a USB-C interface.

Xiaomi, more precisely, recently launched a new GaN charger. It comes with a USB-C interface (with fast charging support) of up to 65W and can provide a full charge on a Mi 10 Pro in 45 minutes.

Specifically, GaN technology uses fewer components than standard chargers and allows them to be even smaller – in some cases, up to 50% smaller. There are currently some good options for Mac-compatible GaN chargers on the market, like this one from Belkin and this one from HYPER.

It is not known that the Apple would manufacture more than one model of charger (with several phases of power) or only one model capable of recharging multiple gadgets. According to Caifa News, it would be possible to use the 65W model to charge iPhones at 50% more speed than the 5W charger (which comes in the iPhone 11 box).

Using the 65W charger to charge the iPhone 11, the charging speed is about 50% faster than the original 5W charger.

Another hypothesis is that the (possible) new charger would benefit from the ability to adjust the output automatically, to supply power to several devices safely. If that is the case, we may see Apple’s most versatile chargers, supporting iPhones, iPads and Macs, for example.
