Apple could release a new 30w charger this year that uses gallium nitride in its construction according to Apple analyst ming Chi Kuo. Gallium nitride is a material that allows chargers to produce less heat, which means they can be smaller while still offering high wattages. Kuo notes that the new charger could have a new form factor design which would presumably make it smaller than apple’s current 30w charger. The company’s first to gan charger was the 140w block that shipped with the latest 16-inch MacBook pro. But the much lesser wattage of the new 30w stallion would likely make it a better fit for one of the Apple iPhone, iPad, or lower powered laptops like the Mac book air. As it happens last year iPhone 13 pro-Max reportedly upped the IPHONE greatest charging speed to 27w when used with the right charger which could explain why Apple is looking to revamp its 30w power brick.

But 27w is a week compared to what even mid-range Android phones have needed these days for fast charging. One plus recent Nord CE 2 for example chains 65w charging via OPPO proprietary supper VOOC standard allowing it to be fully charged in a little over half an hour. Meanwhile Samsung’s recent s22 plus and s22 ultra can fast-charge at 45w. This being apple it is unclear whether we force to see the potential new 30w charger ship inside the box of similar in temperament devices. As of this writing, Apple continues to ship power bricks with it is laptops and tablets but not with it is phones or smartwatches.
