Apple could release a 30W GaN charger before the year runs out. The Apple 30W charger in a new design or form factor was hinted at by a renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo.
The advantage of using “GaN” technology is that it uses less power and it’s more efficient than silicon chargers. This is so because electrical current can pass through GaN much faster than silicon. Thus, GaN chargers consume less power, are usually smaller in size, and are capable of charging your smartphones faster than silicon-based chargers.
Although the specific time when the 30W power adapter will be made available by Apple wasn’t revealed by Kuo. But according to his tweet, this could happen this year.
While at that, the Apple spring event will be happening on March 8, 2022. With rumored announcements including a new iPhone SE (2022 edition), an iPad Air, a new MacBook laptop, etc. You can watch the event and depend on your timezone, the Livestream will commence at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. GMT.
