Apple’s First 35W Dual USB-C Charger Spotted in the Wild, Apparently [Update]
Earlier today we saw renders of what appeared to be Apple’s upcoming dual 35W USB-C charger, but now we have a picture of what it may look like in the wild.
A picture of what claims to be Apple’s 35W dual USB-C charger was shared by leaker Majin Bu (@MajinBuOfficial) on Tuesday.
We see a dual USB-C charger brick similar to the previous renders, but we do not get a view of the folding electrical prong. The finish of the charging brick is glossy, similar to existing Apple chargers.
It’s unclear when Apple will launch this dual USB-C charger, but it may debut sometime around WWDC or in time for this fall’s expected iPhone 14 launch. News of the charger leaked when an Apple support document was published to the web prematurely and spotted by 9to5Mac.
You can bet it’s going to come with Apple pricing, and in the meantime, some alternatives can be found on Amazon, such as this Anker dual USB-C charger for $47.99 with 40W max total output (or 20W max per port, says Anker).
Update: @DuanRui says the photo above is fake, citing it’s a Mophie AC adapter:
Fake, this is a 40W PD charger made by a third-party accessory manufacturer, which does not support dynamic adjustment of power, while Apple's 35W dual-port charger supports dynamic adjustment of power. https://t.co/gdSVMA3two
