Rumor: iPhone 7 to offer support for faster charging

A source cited by online tipster The Malignant claims the iPhone 7 will support faster charging speeds. The accompanying Twitter photo shows what appears to be an updated circuit board that the source claims will support “at least” a 5-volt, 2-amp charging speed. Current iPhone chargers are only rated up to 1 amp, but as we’ve pointed out in the past, current iPhones can charge a bit faster at times when using a 2.1A iPad charger. It’s likely that any fast charging possibilities would be designed to get a future iPhone up to a certain battery percentage more quickly than is currently possible. Many Android devices now offer some form of fast charging, and Apple already uses battery technologies that allow for faster charging, but has never chosen to market it as a feature.
