iPhone 15 to Support Qi2 Wireless Fast Charging [Report]

Posted May 25, 2023 at 4:55pm by iClarified
The next generation iPhone 15 will support the latest Qi2 wireless charging standard, according to a new report from ChargerLAB.

As we all know, the wireless charging power of the iPhone is divided into 7.5W and 15W, only products that integrate Apple official MagSafe module can provide 15W wireless charging. In this way, after MFi, Apple gradually promoted the new accessory certification system, MFM. However, the iPhone 15 is likely to support two wireless charging protocols, namely the original MagSafe and the third-party Qi2 standard, and Qi2 will be recommended as compatible wireless charging technology by Apple for iPhones.

This report corroborates an earlier one which claimed that the iPhone 15 would support 15W fast charging on non-MFi certified chargers.

ChargerLAB has heard that the whole price of Apple's MagSafe module is about $16, which has led to higher retail prices. The new Qi2 wireless charging module is said to cost less than one-third of the MagSafe module, which could mean in cheaper prices for wireless charging accessories. The Qi2 module will also be compatible with all iPhones that support wireless charging.

Notably, Apple's MagSafe is the basis for the Magnetic Power Profile at the core of Qi2. It ensures that phones or other rechargeable battery-powered mobile products are perfectly aligned with charging devices, thus providing improved energy efficiency and faster charging.

We've shared a video comparing the charging times for iPhone when using different official Apple chargers. Check that out here:

If you aren't getting 15W out of your wireless charger, Apple's official MagSafe Charger is on sale for $31 today.

Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone 15 lineup this fall but will debut the its new iOS 17 software next month. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for further updates.
