iPhone 16 Pro to get 40W wired charging and 20W MagSafe wireless charging

iPhone 16 Pro to get 40W wired charging and 20W MagSafe wireless charging

The latest rumors out of China claim the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will see improvements in their charging rates. While the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max can go up to 27W using a cable and up to 15W using MagSafe wireless charging, this year's models will allegedly take things further.

The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are apparently going to support 40W wired charging and 20W MagSafe wireless charging. Those are, of course, peak rates, and won't be achieved for a very long time throughout the charging process.

It remains to be seen how upping the peaks will affect actual charging time for both technologies on these phones, since that's what people care about the most. Still, if this pans out (and that's a big if), it's good to see Apple advancing its charging rates somewhat - it's still quite far from Chinese companies' mainstream 120W wired and 50W wireless peaks, but it is making progress.

On the other hand, the source of this rumor claims the point of the higher peak rate charging is to compensate for upcoming increases in battery capacity on the iPhone 16 Pro and Pro Max - basically Apple wants them to charge at least as fast as their predecessors, even with bigger batteries inside.

A rumor from about a year ago already claimed that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max would get these exact improvements in charging, and that they would also use stacked battery technology which allows for higher capacities and longer lifespans.

The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are due to be unveiled by Apple in September as usual, alongside the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus.
