The support document also explains how the new charger works when charging two devices at the same time. When users connect two devices, the adapter automatically distributes power between them based on their requirements. When charging two like devices simultaneously, the adapter shares the power evenly between the two devices. If you connect an iPhone and an iPad, each device receives up to 17.5W. If you connect a Mac notebook or iPhone and an Apple Watch or AirPods, the Mac notebook or iPhone receives up to 27.5W and the Apple Watch or AirPods receive up to 7.5W. If either of the devices needs more power, users simply need to unplug one device and its charging cable from the adapter.
The new Apple 35W Dual USB-C Power Adapter, which was revealed at WWDC, is now available for purchase on Apple’s website. Those purchasing the new chargers should read a new support document that explains how to use the charger and how it works. Power is distributed evenly using Apple’s 35-W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter. According to Apple’s documentation, the dual USB-C converter can charge up to two devices at once. A user only needs to connect one gadget to any of the ports to charge it. The same may be said for charging two gadgets at the same time.
Apple 35W Dual USB-C Power Adapter Available in Two Configurations
Apple released two variations of the USB-C Power Adapter, a standard and a compact version. The standard version of the dual USB-C adapter comes with a removable plug head to make it compatible with international plug heads and extension cables. Hence, this adapter is available worldwide. On the other hand, the compact version will only be available in the U.S., Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, and a few other countries that use the Type A plug style. Both versions of the adapter retail for $59. The new power adapter will also come with the M2 MacBook Air higher configurations available next month.
