Apple claims that in order to reduce global carbon emissions, from October 2020, all iPhones on sale will no longer include other mobile phone accessories and need to be purchased by themselves. but what kind of charger should be used for the new Apple 14 mobile phone, will Apple 14 mobile phone be upgraded to use 30w fast charge?
Actually yes, if you want the iPhone 14 to be fully charged, then you need to buy a new 30W+ charger that supports the USB PD protocol.
The choice of charger mainly determines the speed of charging and the service life of the battery. Before introducing the choice of the charger, let’s take a look at the service life of the iPhone battery that many people are very concerned about. The battery health of the iPhone we just bought is 100%. The maximum battery capacity and peak performance capacity information can be displayed from Settings—Battery—Battery Health.
As the number of times the phone is charged, the battery health percentage begins to drop until it falls below 80%, then it’s time to consider replacing the battery. After consulting the official documents, we found that there is a certain difference between Apple’s official definition of one battery charge and the one charge we understand.
The charging cycle officially defined by the iphone:
The iPhone’s choice is to choose lithium-ion batteries, and Apple’s lithium-ion batteries work in charge cycles. If you’re using (discharging) 100% of the battery’s capacity, you’ve completed a charge cycle, but not necessarily through a single charge. For example, you might use 75% of the battery during the day and then fully charge the device overnight. If you use 25% of the charge the next day, the total discharge will reach 100%, resulting in a total charge cycle of two days. It may also take several days to complete a charge cycle.
One charge cycle for Apple is 100% discharge. And the number of charging we usually understand refers to plugging in a charging head and charging it once. From Apple’s definition, in daily use, it is not necessary to charge the iPhone fully or wait for the battery to run out, but you can charge the iPhone whenever you need it, because it only counts as a cycle when it is 100% discharged. In addition, according to the official instructions, as the number of charging cycles increases, the battery capacity will decrease.
Apple’s official standard is that when a normal battery operates under normal conditions, when the number of charge cycles reaches 500, the battery should maintain up to 80% of its initial capacity. If it is lower than 80%, then it is necessary to consider replacing the battery. 500 charging cycles, according to the previous definition, assuming that 80% of the electricity is used on average every day, it will take 625 days to complete so many charging cycles, which is about one year and eight months. Some people use it more frequently, and may use 120% of the power in a day (requires multiple charging), then it only takes about a year and two months to complete 500 charging cycles.
So in daily use, no matter what power charger you use, as long as it is a fast charging charger supported by the iPhone 14, it will be charged when it is time to charge, and you do not have to wait until it is almost finished before charging, or when it is fully charged before unplugging.
So what power adapter does the iPhone 14 support?
The cable interface of the iPhone 14 continues to use the Lightning interface.
According to the data, the Lightning interface is based on the USB2.0 standard, and the theoretical maximum charging power is 30W. That is to say, the theoretical maximum charging power of the iPhone 14 series mobile phones can only reach 30W.
A2884 is the iPhone 14, A2892 is the iPhone 14 pro, and A2896 is the iPhone 14 pro max. The supported voltage and current shown in the specifications, electrical power = voltage X current. The highest is 14.5V/2A. This is the same as the iPhone 13 series. The iPhone 14 supports chargers up to 29W. Since the iPhone uses the PD charging protocol, which supports backward compatible charging, if you want to achieve the highest power charging of the iPhone 14, you can consider purchasing 30W and 35W chargers.
Although Apple officially did not specify what kind of charger to use or equipped with the newly launched iPhone 14 mobile phone, it can be known from the official information released by Apple that the Apple 14 can support up to 30w fast charge, so it is most appropriate to buy 30w and 35w choose.
