Apple is planning to launch its first dual port USB type C chargers. Mistakenly, Apple has leaked the details of the charger in the support document.
According to 9to5Mac, the support document was published on Apple’s website, which reveals that the company is working on a new 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter.
If these reports are true, then it will be the company’s first dual charger. The current Apple brick charger, which is a single USB-C Port, provides 30W power. So this new charger can be a game-changer for Apple users.
Apple Dual Port USB-C Charger Coming Soon
However, it’s not clear when the company is planning to release this new accessory. The support document makes clear that the accessory will come for sure.
The documentation reads, “Use the Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter and a USB-C cable (not included) to charge your device. Connect a USB-C cable to either port on the power adapter, extend the electrical prongs (if necessary), then plug the power adapter firmly into the power outlet. Ensure the power outlet is easily accessible for disconnecting. Connect the other end of the cable to your device.”
However, the document was quickly removed. The 35W charger will be enough to charge multiple iPhones or a handful of other accessories.
Moreover, the support document also indicates that the charger might support USB-C Power Delivery.
Also, there are rumors of Apple working on GaN-based power adapters that might release sometime in 2022. GaN technology is an alternative to silicon-based power adapters and is smaller but more power efficient and less heat conductive.
Apple could release this new Dual port adapter in tandem with an updated version of MagSafe Duo. It allows you to charge iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time, but the watch is charged at slower speeds as compared to the dedicated fast charger.
