Apple is unlikely to shake things up too much with this year’s iPhone, but it could have one new trick up its sleeve.
According to a Twitter user who cites Chinese sources, the new iPhone will charge faster than its predecessors. It will supposedly support fast charging of at least 5 volts/2 amps. By comparison, the iPhone 6S’ figures are 5 watts/1 amp.
If accurate, this would bring the new iPhone more in line with fast-charging handsets such as the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Previous rumours have suggested that the iPhone will also feature a larger battery. This could put the iPhone in a pretty good place in terms of battery life.
Apple is expected to reveal the new iPhone on September 7.
