The existence of the unreleased genuine Apple dual USB-C power adapter is revealed
20W USB-C power adapters and 30W USB-C power adapters as power adapters for charging iPhones and iPads, but so far power adapters that can charge multiple terminals at the same time have been sold. I have not. According to a support document independently obtained by 9to5Mac, an Apple-related media, it became clear that Apple plans to sell a 35W dual USB-C power adapter that can charge two terminals with one.
Apple support doc reveals unreleased dual USB-C 35W power adapter – releasing soon? ―― 9to5Mac
Apple's support documentation for 9to5Mac states, 'Use a 35W dual USB-C power adapter and USB-C cable (not included) to charge your device. Use the USB-C cable as one of the power adapters. Connect to the port and, if necessary, extend the electric prong and plug the power adapter firmly into the outlet. Make sure you can easily access and disconnect the outlet, then plug the other end of the USB-C cable. You can see that the 35W dual USB-C power adapter is a power adapter that can charge two terminals at the same time.
This support document was deleted immediately after it was released. Apple has never released a power adapter that can charge more than one device at the same time, so if the 35W dual USB-C power adapter is released, it will be the company's first power adapter that can charge multiple devices at the same time. 9to5Mac wrote, 'A 35W output is enough to charge multiple iPhones or iPhones with an Apple Watch or another accessory at the same time.'
For example, the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which is a high-end model in the iPhone series, can be charged at high speed if it has an output of 27W. On the other hand, the Apple Watch Series 7 requires only 5W for fast charging. So with a 35W output, you can fast charge your iPhone 13 Pro Max and Apple Watch Series 7 at the same time.
Also, according to the support document, the 35W dual USB-C power adapter is also compatible with USB Power Delivery , which is a USB-C charging standard. The detailed specifications described in the support document are as follows.
・ Input: 100-240V / 1.0A
• Output: 5V DC / 3A or 9V DC / 3A or 15V DC / 2.33A or 20V DC / 1.75A
In addition, 9to5Mac said, 'It is unknown when Apple will release this accessory in the first place. I have heard many rumors that Apple is trying to expand the power adapter line using GaN (gallium nitride) technology. This 35W dual USB-C power adapter could be Apple's first stand-alone GaN charger when it goes on sale, but Apple doesn't mention GaN technology in its support documentation. ' It's unclear if the 35W dual USB-C power adapter uses GaN technology.
In general, GaN technology allows for faster charging while making the charging power adapter smaller. This makes it possible to create a power adapter that is the same size as an existing power adapter and can charge multiple terminals at the same time. Another possibility that 9to5Mac mentioned was the idea of releasing a 35W dual USB-C power adapter at the same time as the MagSafe dual charging pad . The MagSafe Dual Charging Pad allows you to charge your iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time, but in this case it will charge slower than charging your Apple Watch with a dedicated fast charger. Apple may be considering a 35W dual USB-C power adapter as a power adapter to solve this problem.
