Apple may be planning to introduce a dual-port 35W USB-C charger in the near future, based on a leaked support document that was found by 9to5Mac. The support document was apparently only on Apple’s site for a short time, but there was a clear mention of the unreleased charger.

Apple’s current 30W power adapter


Since there’s no USB-C dual-port power adapter available at the moment, that might be something Apple has in the works. 35W would charge or power a wide range of Apple devices, from MacBook Air to iPads, iPhones, Apple Watch and HomePod. For iPhone and iPad, it would be powerful enough to support fast charging.

The power adapter will support the following modes: 5 VDC/3 A or 9 VDC/3 A or 15 VDC/2.33 A or 20 VDC/1.75 A, and will provide a total charging power of 35 W, not 35W for each USB-C port.

Use the Apple 35W Dual-Port USB-C Power Adapter and a USB-C cable (not included) to charge your device. Connect a USB-C cable to one of the power adapter ports, extend the electrical pins (if necessary), then plug the power adapter firmly into the power outlet. Make sure the power outlet is easily accessible for disconnection. Connect the other end of the cable to your device.

It’s unclear when this accessory might launch, but it could be the GaN power adapter that Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple was working on in early March. Kuo said Apple is working on a “30W power adapter” that features a new form factor design, with the company planning to introduce it sometime in 2022.

He said the charger will use gallium nitride or “GaN” technology, allowing for a smaller and lighter form factor through improved power efficiency. Apple’s first GaN charger (140W) launched last year alongside the MacBook Pro.

Other accessory companies like Anker and Belkin have been making GaN chargers for quite some time and offer several multi-port options.
