Yesterday, reports first emerged that the iPhone 13 Pro Max could actually charge faster than Apple let on. While the handset is officially listed as having a charging speed of 20 watts, plugging it into a higher rated charger showed it hitting nearly 27W speeds, albeit with plenty of fluctuations.
Now a number of other sources have confirmed this, including the ChargerLAB YouTube channel, and MyDrivers. That’s an improvement on last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max which 9to5Mac claims capped out at 22W on a 30W charger. What this means is that you can go from zero to 100% in under 90 minutes on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
While Apple has closed the feature gap between the Pro and Pro Max models of iPhone 13, this marks a clear discrepancy between the two, as Twitter user @duanrui1205 has revealed that the smaller iPhone 13 Pro caps at 20W. And if you use MagSafe wireless charging, you can expect things to slow down further.
