Leaked 20W Power Adapter for iPhone 12 Models Appears to Have Received Certification

Earlier today, the anonymous Twitter account Mr. White leaked photos of what appears to be a new 20W power adapter for upcoming iPhone 12 models. And now, it appears that this charger has been certified in at least one country.

As spotted by MySmartPrice, a new USB-C power adapter with the same model identifier of A2305 shown in the leaked photo above has surfaced in an electronics certification database in Norway. The certification was issued on February 28, 2020.

Another power adapter with a model identifier of A2247 has also received certification in both Norway and Australia, but no further details are known.

Apple currently includes an 18W USB-C power adapter with iPhone 11 Pro models, while the iPhone 11 still ships with a slower 5W charger. It is unclear which iPhone 12 models the 20W power adapter would be bundled with.

How much faster would it be than 18 W?

I mean I'll take it

2W faster

20W is too much to maintain good battery health....
Unless there finally is an iOS option to charge slower and thus preventing unecessary battery degradation I'm not convinced this is the right thing to do!
Keeping your battery at full 100% charge all the time or draining it all the way to 0% all the time is much more harmful than a faster charge.


Looks at this thing. Looks at my set of Anker GaN USB-C chargers. Pours one out for the days when Apple accessories set the standard for something other than inflated profit margins.
Yeah a foldable design would be nice. My iPhone 11 max charger takes as much space as my 61watt gan ravpower charger.

Probably because the newer models are having their fast charge times slip as the batteries get bigger.

I'm hoping for USB C on the new iPhones. Finally I would be able to have "one cable to rule them all". Anything to minimize the ridiculous amount of adapters I have to carry in my laptop bag. Ugh.

FFS what happened to the "simplicity" of Apple? There should be 1 (maybe 2) chargers for all iOS devices. Same with laptops. Then again don't get me started on Macbook, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro-ish (13"), and Macbook Pro.

Miss the days of consumer/pro in laptop/desktop.

Then again I guess this follows their approach to 1000 different iPad models so at least they're consistent in inconsistency.
Those days were literally like two years where they overhauled the entire product line because the company was about to go bankrupt.

You can go get any GAN USB C pd charger or a MacBook Pro charger and it will charge any Apple device. Yes you may need two cords. When was that ever true before?

totally - I didn't say anything about any other effects impacting battery life.
The 'danger' of charging above 80% for instance is much larger with fast chargers, because they might fill up the battery sooner than you realize - this is why I want more control!

The current option to limit the charge during night to 80% before fully charing up early early in the morning doesn't work for me most of the time. I'll travel or just go to bed late or get up early... it doesn't work, I've logged the power draw externally.
Manual control please!!! I don't have to be able to set the current or entire IV curve manually, but a limiter or a switch to activate globally working battery saving charge-mode would be nice. 'never exceed 80% charge' maybe
... probably not going to happen though.
