Leaked! iPhone 13 could be the fastest charging Apple handset ever, faster than even iPhone 12; Android shamed?
It looks like the Apple iPhone 13 is going to charge at a faster rate than any other previous iPhone, according to a new rumour. It has put Android phones under the spotlight.
Apple iPhone 13 is one of the most anticipated high-end devices of the year due to the splendid specs that it may be packing. Recent leaks have suggested the company could launch its upcoming smartphones with ProMotion displays (with high refresh rates) larger batteries and a smaller notch. Now, according to a recent leak, it looks like the Cupertino-based company is also likely to boost the charging speeds of the soon-to-be-launched iPhone 13.
According to a report by MacRumors, the Apple iPhone 13 could support charging speeds of up to 25W with a power adapter, which is a step up from iPhone 12's current capability, which was first reported by Chinese website MyDrivers. As of now, Apple's iPhone 12 models can all charge at a maximum of 20W with Apple's own power adapter. Even if you do connect a much faster charger, say a 45W one, the iPhone will only manage to draw 20W.

However, this is likely to change with the arrival of the iPhone 13, according to the new rumour that suggests the upcoming device could draw a maximum of 25W from an adapter that Apple could be planning on launching later this year.
While this isn't a large increase in charging speeds, the rumour of Apple switching to faster charging is a good sign in the long run.
Does the fastest charging Apple iPhone have mean that Android smartphones have been out to shame? Hardly. Devices like the Samsung Galaxy A71 charge at 27W, while some Chinese smartphones can already charge at 45W and 65W – We have also recently reported that Xiaomi is already working on bringing a whopping 200W charger to its smartphones in the future.
Another feature iPhone 13 is rumoured to have is stronger MagSafe magnet on the rear of the device that could possibly allow for reverse charging and faster wireless charging. However, one must take these claims with a pinch of salt as we will only gain official confirmation of any rumoured features once Apple finally launches these devices in the coming months.
