Apple products don't always rank the highest when it comes to charging and support for higher wattage chargers. While the companies like OPPO are pushing to 240W fast charging, Apple's latest iPhone only supports 20W fast charging. A new tweet from popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that this is about to change (though not as much as you would've thought) as Apple is working on a new GaN charger with higher wattage behind the scenes.

Kuo says that Apple has been working on a new GaN charger that will deliver speeds up to 30W. For reference, the current USB-C power adapter for iPhone from Apple delivers a 20W charging speed. He says that the charger will have a new design and will be released in 2022. The upcoming 30W charger could be a smaller version of Apple's existing 30W USB-C power adapter that comes with the MacBook Air. However, this is only speculation at the moment.

A number of third-party sellers including Anker, Belkin, Spigen, and SUPCASE already sell GaN chargers for iPhones. You can check out some of them here:
