Anker's Qi2 Chargers Will Charge iPhones at 15W

Next-generation Qi2 chargers from Anker will charge the iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and iPhone 15 at faster 15W speeds, Anker told The Verge. Current Qi-based chargers from companies like Anker are limited to 7.5W when used with Apple's iPhones, while MagSafe chargers support 15W charging.


While Qi2 has the same magnetic alignment that ‌MagSafe‌ offers, Apple has not provided details on the Qi2 charging speeds that the iPhone will support. During the introduction of the ‌iPhone 15‌ and iPhone 15 Pro models, Apple said they support Qi2, but the technical specifications page for the devices says that Qi wireless charging is limited to 7.5W.
Anker spokesperson Mary Woodbury confirmed in an email to The Verge that, unlike older Qi products that were limited to half-speed 7.5W charging with iPhones, the new MagGo products can support 15W charging, the same maximum rate you get with Apple's MagSafe-branded gear.

Apple has not confirmed 15W charging speeds with Qi2, nor have other manufacturers working on Qi2 provided specific charging speeds, but if Anker's upcoming Qi2 chargers work at 15W, other wireless chargers will likely have the same maximum speed.

The ‌iPhone 15‌ models have had Qi2 support since they launched, and with the iOS 17.2 that's coming soon, Apple is adding Qi2 support to the ‌iPhone 13‌ and ‌iPhone 14‌ models.

If Qi2 does support actual 15W charging speeds on the ‌iPhone‌ similar to ‌MagSafe‌, the certification could help clear up some confusing with existing magnetic wireless chargers. Current Qi-based chargers that have magnets are still limited to 7.5W charging, but manufacturers often like to say that they support up to 15W because other non-iPhone smartphones are able to charge at those speeds.

The first Qi2 chargers are expected in late 2023, and brands like Belkin, Mophie, and Anker have already announced new Qi2 products.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Peloton Reverses Course, Will Continue to Support Apple GymKit

Earlier this week, Peloton said that it would drop support for Apple's GymKit feature that syncs data to the Health app. Customers were unhappy with the decision and complained to the company, leading Peloton to announce a change in plans. Peloton on Thursday said that after listening to member feedback on GymKit, the integration will continue to be offered. Peloton wanted to stop offering GymKit integration in favor of the Peloton One-Tap tracking feature, but GymKit has been a key feature on the $2,500 Bike+ since its 2020 debut , and other Peloton machines since 2022. After listening to Members’ feedback about discontinuing Apple GymKit integration for Bike+, we have decided to continue offering Apple GymKit integration. As a Member-first company, we are always grateful to our Members for sharing their views. — Peloton (@onepeloton) February 16, 2024 The One-Tap tracking app does monitor distance, pace, and heart rate metrics, but only basic information is synced t
