Apple is working on a new charger that will give an output of 35W. The interesting part is that this charger may come with two USB-C ports. It means you can be able to charge two iPhones at once.
And there is solid evidence that this charger is imminent because Apple itself leaked it via a document on the support website. This could also be a gallium nitride (GaN) charger, which uses technology that allows companies to shrink the size of the adapter while ensuring fast-charging capabilities are intact.

“Use the Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter and a USB-C cable to charge your device. Connect a USB-C cable to either port on the power adapter, extend the electrical prongs, then plug the power adapter firmly into the power outlet. Ensure the power outlet is easily accessible for disconnecting. Connect the other end of the cable to your device,” Apple wrote on its support page.
The publication notes that this 35W charger ‘will be enough to charge multiple iPhones, an iPhone, an Apple Watch, or a bunch of other combinations of accessories at the same time.

The document also reveals that Apple’s 35W charger will require an input of 100–240V /1.0A and that it will provide an output of 5VDC/3A or 9VDC/3A or 15VDC/2.33A or 20VDC/1.75A.
Since Apple has removed any reference to this charger from the website, it is hard to guess when it will come. But several previous rumours have indicated that Apple was looking to expand its range of power adapters. Many of these rumours pointed out that Apple could be working on the gallium nitride (GaN) technology for its adapters and now the speculation is that this unreleased dual USB-C port power adapter could very well be Apple’s first GaN charger. Although Apple reportedly did not mention GaN or associated features anywhere in the now-removed support document.
