In related news, Apple has been tipped to be working on a 35W dual-port USB Type-C power adapter which can be used to simultaneously charge multiple iPhone handsets or accessories. There is no clear indication of when or if Apple would release this charger. However, industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that the Cupertino company could put this 35W dual-port USB Type-C power adapter into production in 2022. It is expected to ship up to 2 to 3 million units this year. Rumours hint that this charger could be released alongside a new MagSafe Duo. In typical Apple fashion, the adapter might not be packaged with a USB cable.
