Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro color choices and charging speeds leaked in alleged information dump
Hot on the heels of supposed price details about the iPhone 14 and purported display information comes a knowledge “dump” provided by an Apple leaker on Twitter with the handle @Jioriku. Plenty of the details in the thread have already turned up via other sources, such as information about the chip manufacturing process, the incoming always-on display feature, and the A16 processor performance (enhanced by a “better heat management system”). But also buried in the large list are the alleged iPhone 14 color choices and a little tidbit about the charging speeds.
First off, it appears those looking to purchase either an Apple iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Max will get to choose from green, purple (reportedly replacing a pink option), blue, black, white, and red in terms of handset color. The source is seemingly 80% confident about this, and there have been other leakers who have mentioned the inclusion of colors such as green and purple. As for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, fans can expect green, purple, silver, gold, and graphite color choices, with the tipster being only 60% sure about this selection, which has purple taking over from the expected sierra blue option.
When it comes to charging rates, it is alleged that the iPhone 14 devices will support 30 W charging speeds, although heat development will apparently reduce that figure to 25-27 W. In contrast, the iPhone 13 supported 20 W fast charging while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max could outdo that with 20-23 W support for the former and 20-27 W for the latter. It’s not a huge buff for the next-generation iPhone series, but every additional watt counts. Unfortunately, it appears that wireless charging for the iPhone 14 won’t be bumped up, with a 15 W MagSafe wireless charging rate remaining in place.
30W charging for 30W or higher bricks for the first bit of a charge cycle. Drops down to 27-25W (depends on heat) so results may vary. Note this wired. Wireless is staying the same.— McGuire Wood ???? Lost Lands 2022 (@Jioriku) August 3, 2022
