Apple, on the site verifies (and disappears) a 35W power supply with two USB-C sockets

The news this time comes directly from Applewho let slip a detail on his site then promptly deleted: but not fast enough to prevent 9to5Mac to take a screenshot. At the heart of this Cupertino oblivion is a support document dedicated to a new 35W adapter with two USB-C ports.

As mentioned, the document was then quickly deleted following its publication. On the other hand, there are two options: either it is a real product whose arrival is more or less imminent but which has certainly not yet been announced, or a product whose transformation has been canceled. In both scenarios, however, the thing to do would be to remove the dedicated support page: and in fact, that’s exactly how things happened.

If this 35W power supply should turn out to be, as it is plausible to suppose, an accessory that will soon be on the market, then it would be the first from Apple with a dual USB-C socket. A choice that would allow you to charge more than one iPhone at the same time (35W would suffice), or even an iPhone with an Apple Watch for exampleor to another of the devices in the Cupertino ecosystem.

In the case of a hypothetical iPhone 13 Pro Max and Apple Watch handset, for example, from 35 W in total (and not for each port), the smartphone could be recharged using the maximum supported speed (that’s that is, 27 W), then there would be 8 more charging Apple Watch Series 7, for which fast charging is enough 5W.

Second 9to5Macwho viewed the document, the power supply would also implement USB-C Power Delivery technology, and the detailed specifications would be as follows:

  • Input: 100–240V / 1.0A
  • (USB PD) Output 1 or 2: 5VDC / 3A or 9VDC / 3A or 15VDC / 2.33A or 20VDC / 1.75A

For the moment the information stops there: the appearance of a support page on the official site, in general, should be an indication of an imminent launch. And so we might not have to wait long before Apple decides to unveil the product.
