Apple plans to release an upgraded version of its 35W wall adapter. This information is based on an alleged support document that was briefly published on the official Apple website. This new 35W power adapter features a dual USB Type-C charging port, the first for a Cupertino-based company. With a 35W power rating, it can be used to charge multiple iPhones or accessories simultaneously. There is no confirmation from Apple about this dual-port charger, but it is expected to arrive later this year.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple was quick to remove the alleged support document that mentioned the existence of a 35W power adapter with a dual USB Type-C port. The charger can support the following USB power delivery charging modes – 5V / 3A, 9V / 3A, 15V / 2.33A, or 20V / 1.75A. There is no clear indication in the documentation whether Apple plans to keep this charger in production or scrap it completely. Apple may release this dual USB Type-C port power adapter with a newer version of the MagSafe Duo. The alleged support document presumably states that Apple will not supply USB Type-C with the adapter only if it is released.
Notably, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested it could be the new power adapter he had previously hinted at. It is expected to go into mass production in 2022 with an estimated shipment of up to 2-3 million units. This power adapter is tipped to use gallium nitride (GaN) technology for a compact and light design. Apple has previously used GaN technology for the 140W charger released with the MacBook Pro 2021 It has been used by third-party manufacturers such as Belkin and Anchor to offer multiple port options with their charging adapters.
