- Apple's first dual USB-C wall adapter could be in the works.
- The information came from a since-pulled support document.
- It could be a 35W accessory
Apple could release a new version of its popular USB-C wall adapter. A since-pulled support document on the Apple website shows the company is prepping a new 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter, according to 9to5Mac.
Noting it's unclear when such an accessory might be released if ever, 9to5Mac says the support document noted:
To date, Apple has yet to release a dual USB-C charger. If it would, a 35W adapter would be enough to charge multiple Apple products simultaneously, such as an iPhone and Apple Watch.
More information from the document:
Currently, Apple offers various single USB-C power adapters, including 20W, 30W, 67W, 96W, and 140W. There are various third-party USB charging solutions and wall chargers on the market. These work with the 2021 MacBook Pro and other Apple products.
Were Apple to reveal a dual USB-C wall adapter, it could happen during this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which begins on Monday, June 8.

What I'd really like to see is a dual C charger that runs around 65-85W, to charge a MacBook and maybe the folding iPhone/Watch charging pad. If they don't, I'll just keep buying Twelve South's plug bugs.
A 35w dual port USB-C doesn't make sense, unless one has more wattage than the other. Or if one is USB-C, and the other USB-A. What I'd like to see for iPhones, iPads, Watch, etc, is a 45w dual port. One with 30w for USB-C, and 15w for USB-A. I currently use the Anker 30w, with 18w for USB-C, and 12w for USB-A. We need more choices from Apple.
