Apple will reportedly ship a 20W USB-C charger with its upcoming iPhone 12, although it remains to be seen which models particularly will get the faster unit. The current iPhone 11 Pro, for instance, comes with an 18W USB-C power brick in the box but the iPhone 11 is still bundled with a prehistoric 5W charger.
While the industry has moved to higher wattage charging, some in excess of 60W, Apple is seemingly a laggard in this area.
Arguably, fast-charging may be detrimental to battery health over long term and Apple has for a long time held back fast-charging bricks, even for its flagship devices.
The iPhone 11 Pro was the first model Apple shipped a high wattage USB-C charger with Power Delivery (PD), bundled with USB-C to Lightning port cable.
The upcoming iPhone 12 series will purportedly be four-model-strong: a new 5.4-inch iPhone 12, two 6.1-inch models, and a top end 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. It is believed that one of the 6.1-inch models and the 6.7-inch model will sport a triple-camera and LiDAR scanner (first seen on the new iPad Pro).
The new iPhone is rumoured to take on a flatter, iPad Pro look.
