iPhone 15 series will support 15W fast wireless charging speeds using third-party uncertified MagSafe chargers
Apple anticipates unveiling the new generation iPhone 15 series smartphones this fall. In addition to providing innovative features and prescient changes, the most striking divergence might be the adoption of a USB-C port, abandoning the Lightning port that has been in use for a decade. For many users, Apple’s metamorphosis could make charging somewhat more convenient, at least in terms of reducing the variety of cables one needs to carry when away from home.
According to a report from Wccftech, the transformation of the Apple iPhone 15 series in the realm of charging may encompass more than just the incorporation of a USB-C port. There are whispers that the new models will facilitate 15W fast wireless charging. This implies that the iPhone 15 series might incorporate support for the Qi2 protocol, eliminating the necessity for MagSafe magnetic charging, or other third-party chargers that have undergone “MFi” certification.
It is universally acknowledged that these Apple-certified charging devices are often significantly more expensive, thus this shift could be of meaningful significance for users. As it stands, this is mere conjecture, with no specific details as yet. It is speculated that Apple’s changes are closely linked to the Qi2 protocol, as the new standard has incorporated a feature akin to the MagSafe magnetic function that Apple uses, ensuring accurate alignment of the charger with the coil location, thus enabling faster wireless charging speeds.
Rumors have previously circulated that Apple, despite intending to transition to a USB-C port, still insists on the use of MFi-certified charging accessories. In response to this potential move by Apple, the European Union has issued a warning against limiting the functionality of USB-C cables. If Apple becomes more open in terms of both wired and wireless charging, enabling compatibility with commonly used accessories in the market, it would undoubtedly be a boon for users.
