iPhone 15 to Support 15W Wireless Charging on Non-MagSafe Chargers

The upcoming iPhone 15 would be the first iPhone to support 15W wireless charging on non-MagSafe chargers.

  • Apple will launch the upcoming iPhones in September 2023.
  • The upcoming iPhones are tipped to feature support for Qi2 wireless charging standard.
  • The vanilla models are also tipped to feature a new 48MP primary camera sensor.

Apple is gearing up for the launch of the upcoming iPhone 15 series smartphones. The series would include iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro, and 15 Pro Max. The launch of these smartphones is scheduled for September. Ahead of the launch, the CAD renders of the iPhone 16 Pro series smartphones were leaked. These smartphones will launch in September 2024, and the camera design and specifications were also tipped recently. Many reports regarding the upcoming 15 series smartphones revealed the design, CAD renders, and more. A new report from ChargerLab has revealed the wireless charging support of vanilla 15.

Apple iPhone 15 Tipped Features and Specifications

The report reveals that Apple will support Qi2 wireless charging standards on the upcoming smartphone. Industry sources revealed the information regarding the support to ChargerLab. The support for Qi2 wireless charging standard means that the phone will support 15W wireless charging on non-Magsafe chargers. IPhone 14 series smartphones only support 7.5W wireless charging on non-Magsafe chargers.

The previous limitation on wireless charging speed is similar to the restriction of non-MFi-certified products. MFi is a certification introduced by Apple where manufacturers are required to obtain a license to manufacture accessories for Apple. The introduction of support for the Qi2 standard will bring down the cost of wireless chargers to one-third of Magsafe chargers. The wireless charging manufacturers wouldn’t be required to obtain MFi certification, which will help them to keep the costs low.

The Qi2 standard already supports wireless charging in iPhones. An official announcement from Apple is required to know the exact charging speed of Qi2 wireless chargers. Recently, a report revealed that Apple would upgrade the primary rear camera sensor on the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus smartphones. Apple used a 12MP sensor with the vanilla models since the launch of the iPhone 6S. The upcoming vanilla models will feature a 48MP sensor introduced with iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

The upcoming smartphones would also be eligible for 48MP ProRAW mode. The devices are also tipped to feature a three-stacked sensor to improve image quality. A report has revealed that the vanilla models won’t feature support for 120Hz ProMotion display. However, Apple will ditch the traditional notch with a Dynamic Island seen on the iPhone 14 Pro series smartphones. The display panel of the vanilla 15 was leaked recently, revealing the Dynamic Island.

The upcoming iPhones would be the first to sport a USB Type-C port instead of the traditional lightning port. Apple is expected to announce iOS 17 at the WWDC 2023, scheduled for June 5. The upcoming iOS 17 is expected to bring many new features to iPhones. Another report revealed that Tata Group would also manufacture the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models in India. The company recently acquired Wistron’s factory, which is planning to exit from the Indian market.
