Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 7 will have a special fast charging feature, aping rival handsets from Samsung and Motorola.
That’s according to an anonymous Chinese source, who claims that Apple is planning on offering a five-volt, two-amp charging solution.
The current iPhone 6s offers a five-watt, one-amp charger, which means an iPhone can take hours to reach 100% battery.
While this rumour remains unconfirmed, faster charging has become a key battleground among smartphone-makers looking to make marginal gains against their competitors.
Samsung offers a Quick Charge function that powers its Galaxy S7 Edge to 50% battery in just half an hour.
Apple’s next-generation iPhone is expected to offer few outstanding features to entice consumers, but such an addition could end up giving it a sales boost.
The iPhone 7 is expected to launch around September 9th.
