iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max Charging Speeds Tested


The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max were tested with various Apple power adapters by the Chinese website Chongdiantou, which provided useful information on charging speeds and identified the best charger for rapid charging.

To charge the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max at their maximum supported charging rates of 25W and 27W, respectively, the 30W USB-C power converter from Apple is the best option. It costs thirty-nine dollars, making it the company’s most affordable charger. All other more expensive Apple chargers, like the new 35W converter with dual USB-C connections for fifty-nine dollars, charge the devices at a maximum of marginally quicker rates.

The chart below is in Chinese, but it demonstrates that the iPhone 14 Pro Max was charged at 26 to almost 27W by all Apple adapters rated at 29W or higher.

The 30W adaptor ought to be the best option for the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro as well, though charging speeds for those models are still to be determined.

Interestingly, Chongdiantou discovered that the older 29W power adapter from Apple, which was made for the 12-inch MacBook and discontinued in June 2018, allows the iPhone 14 Pro Max to momentarily reach peak charging speeds of roughly 29W.

According to the sister website of Chongdiantou, ChargerLAB, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max are capable of up to 23W and 27W charging speeds, respectively. Apple is anticipated to transition to USB-C for iPhone 15 models next year, but the speeds for all iPhone 14 models are essentially the same this year.

The new iPhones from Apple do not come with a charger anymore. With a compatible 20W or higher power adapter, users may charge all four iPhone ’14’ models to half capacity in around 30 to 35 minutes.
