IPhone 13 Could Benefit From 25 Watts Fast Charging
The iPhone 13 is expected to be announced in September if all goes well. One of the small innovations of the smartphone would be the compatibility with the fast charging of 25 Watts. Even with that, Apple would still be way below the competition at this level.
Fast charging is one of the latest fads of smartphone manufacturers. It is the one who will bring the most power. Apple is lagging behind on this side and there is no risk no change with the iPhone 13.
MacRumors claims that the iPhone 13 would be compatible with the recharge of 25 Watts. A not so fast recharge which is not a big step forward compared to the iPhone 12, compatible with the 20 Watt recharge. Apple therefore seems to be staying the course in this segment.
Apple should still sell its charger separately
According to the site, users will be able to use a more powerful third-party charger to take advantage of this fast charge or buy an Apple charger directly. We remind you, since the iPhone 12 chargers are no longer provided in the phone box. You have to pay 25 euros to get one of 20 Watts on the Apple Store. We can wait each other to a charger of 25 Watts at the same price.
Going from 20 to 25 Watts will not make a major change. We can even bet on the fact that the user will not see the difference. We could save a few minutes, more. To give you an idea, we measured a full charge of the iPhone 12 in 65 minutes. The iPhone 13 should be of the same ilk if this leak is confirmed.
Today, the various manufacturers rely on fast recharging to seduce. This is the case of Xiaomi or OnePlus, which offer 65 watt chargers capable to recharge an entire smartphone in less than 40 minutes. Note that Apple is not the only manufacturer to be late in this area, since this is also the case with Samsung, which offers a capacity of 25 Watts maximum on its Galaxy S21.
The iPhone 13 should not completely change the formula, but sign a simple evolution compared to the iPhone 12. Among the expected novelties, a refresh rate of 120 Hz on the screen. AirPods 3 could also be presented at the same time as the phone.
