Apple rumored to release new 30W GaN charger later this year

The rumor: Apple will be releasing their second gallium nitride (GaN) charger in 2022, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (70.4% accurate).

Sam’s take: Charger news isn’t generally too exciting. But Apple’s current selection of power adapters is severely outdated compared to what third parties like Spigen are doing with their chargers (full disclosure: I work with Spigen regularly and love their stuff). GaN is simply better across the board and I look forward to Apple selling some more first party stuff with it soon.
