The Cupertino company poses many challenges to engineers in its offices, in this case and always according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Cupertino company would work on a 30W GaN charger it would allow devices like the iPhone to be charged faster than they are today, which we usually call fast charging.
Already many brands of third-party chargers switched to GaN chargers Due to its advantages over the previous ones, we can find this type of charger in such popular companies as Belkin, Anker, Satechi and many others.
Belkin, explains us perfectly what are these GaN (gallium nitride) chargers in case anyone doesn’t know:
Gallium nitride, or GaN, is a material that is beginning to be used in semiconductors for chargers. In the early 1990s, it was frequently used in the manufacture of LED lamps. It is also a popular material for solar cell batteries for satellites. The distinguishing fact of GaN when it comes to device chargers is that it produces less heat. This means that charger components can be grouped further together to reduce size, without negatively affecting charging capacity or safety compliance.
Apple’s 30W charger would be released this year
In any case, it is important to note that with these new chargers, the Cupertino company guarantees users to be able to recharge their new iPhone models with ultra-fast charging and enjoy this same charger for MacBook, MacBook Pro, iPad Air and iPad Pro. Kuo warns that the company could have this charger ready in 2022, so we’ll keep an eye on it. What also seems clear is that it won’t be included in the iPhone box and could also be priced around the $25 that Apple’s current fast charger costs.
