According to Anker, Anker’s next-generation Qi2 chargers will charge the iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and iPhone 15 at 15W speeds. When used with Apple’s iPhones, current Qi-based chargers from companies like Anker are limited to 7.5W, whereas MagSafe chargers support 15W charging.
While Qi2 has the exact magnetic alignment as MagSafe, Apple has not disclosed any information about the Qi2 charging speeds that the iPhone will support. Apple stated that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models support Qi2, but the technical specifications page for the devices states that Qi wireless charging is limited to 7.5W.
Apple has not confirmed 15W Qi2 charging speeds, nor have other Qi2 manufacturers provided specific charging speeds. However, if Anker’s upcoming Qi2 chargers operate at 15W, other wireless chargers will likely operate at the same maximum speed.
The iPhone 15 models have had Qi2 support since their release, and with the upcoming iOS 17.2, Apple will add Qi2 support to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models.
If Qi2 does, like MagSafe, support actual 15W charging speeds on the iPhone, the certification could help clear up some confusion with existing magnetic wireless chargers. Current Qi-based magnet chargers are still limited to 7.5W charging, but manufacturers frequently claim they support up to 15W charging because other non-iPhone smartphones can charge at those speeds.
