On September 29, a newly published YouTube video revealed that the peak power delivery of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is faster than its predecessor model.
According to a new video published on the “ChargerLab” YouTube channel, the latest iPhone 13 Pro Max has a higher peak power delivery up to 27W while charging it with a 30W power adaptor.
In a video, ChargerLab shows that the latest higher-end iPhone can’t handle 27W peak power delivery all the time but it is still worth noting that it charges a little faster than its predecessor model, iPhone 12 Pro Max that announced in October 2020 which supports up to 22W fast charging with 30W power adaptor.
The test was conducted by ChargerLab only with iPhone 13 Pro Max, so, it is currently unclear that whether or not the other models (iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 Pro) can handle a 27W fast charging.
Apple recommends that all newer iPhones (iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineup) can be fast-charged with a 50-percent battery within 30 minutes using a 20W power adaptor and MFI certified USB-C to Lightning cable, however, Apple’s 20W fast charger sold separately at a $19 price point.
Moreover, this is the second year where Apple hasn’t provided the power adaptor in the iPhone box and this year, for the first time, Apple makes completely plastic-free iPhone packaging to reduce considerable environmental impact.
