The iPhone 13 series will be upgraded by Apple to 25W fast charging instead of 20W like the iPhone 12 series, but still lower than other Android models.
According to a report from MyDrivers, the new charging speed on the iPhone 13 series is not too groundbreaking but will meet the new battery capacity.
Previous rumors showed that the iPhone 13 mini will have a 2,406 mAh battery, up from 2,227 mAh on the iPhone 12 mini; iPhone 13 and 13 Pro both have 3,095 mAh batteries, an increase of 200 mAh more than the 2,815 mAh of the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro; iPhone 13 Pro Max will have the most increase with 4,352 mAh battery compared to 3,687 mAh of 12 Pro Max.
The addition of new fast charging helps the iPhone 13 catch up with Samsung's flagship smartphones in terms of charging speed. Currently, the Galaxy S21 series is supporting this charging capacity. So does the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3.
However, the fast charging ability of the iPhone 13 will still be far behind products from Xiaomi, Huawei, and OnePlus. Recently, OnePlus announced the mid-range Nord 2 5G with 65W fast charging, while Huawei and Xiaomi offer 66W and 67W charging technology on a lot of high-end devices.
Previously, it was reported that iPhone 13 will have a MagSafe charger with larger and stronger magnets. The device will also have wireless reverse charging, allowing charging other Apple devices, such as AirPods, Apple Watch.
The iPhone 13 series will have small design changes compared to the iPhone 12, such as a smaller notch, a large camera cluster, and a diagonal camera layout in the iPhone 13 and 13 mini.
The Pro series duo will be equipped with LTPO screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The two regular versions still use 60 Hz refresh rate OLED screens.
According to reports, the iPhone 13 will not include a charger and headphones in the box similar to the iPhone 12 series. The new smartphone will be announced in September according to the previous iPhone launch schedule instead of October like the iPhone 12 last year.
