How to fast charge your iPhone 15 with USB-C for lightning-fast charging

Apple’s iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro now come with a much-anticipated new feature that users have been requesting for years. The proprietary Lightning port has finally been replaced with a USB-C port, making it compatible with almost any USB-C cable and power adapter on the market. This means faster and more convenient charging options for iPhone users.

With the new USB-C port, iPhone 15 users can now enjoy faster charging speeds by using higher wattage charging bricks. The iPhone 15 can technically receive power up to 27 watts, but practical charging speeds above 20 watts will have diminishing returns. This means that with a USB-C cable and a 20W USB-C power adapter, users can charge their iPhone 15 from zero to 50% in just about 30 minutes, and from zero to 100% in under 2 hours.

For those looking for alternative power adapter options, there are plenty of higher-wattage USB-C charging options available in the market, such as the dual USB-C compact charger from Anker. It’s also worth noting that any power adapters rated higher than 20 watts will automatically charge the iPhone 15 at the maximum speed it supports.

In addition, the transition to USB-C allows for convenience and compatibility between different Apple devices. Users can now use the same cable and a 60-watt (or higher) MacBook power adapter to fast charge all of their Apple devices. This means that if a MacBook is plugged into power and charging, users can even connect their iPhone into one of the laptop’s USB-C ports and charge at near-full speed.

Despite the switch to USB-C, Apple users can still use their existing 5-watt power adapters with a USB-C to USB-A cable, but it will only charge the phone at a slower 5W speed. This was the standard charging speed when smartphones had smaller battery capacities, but with the larger battery capacities of modern iPhones, charging at 5 watts may take four or five hours to go from zero to 100%.

The new USB-C feature opens up new possibilities for iPhone users, providing faster and more convenient charging solutions. With the shift to USB-C, users can now enjoy a more seamless experience with a wider range of charging options and accessories available in the market.
