When Apple announced the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, it noticed that they could charge up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes with a 20W charger. However, it has now come to light that the iPhone 13 Pro Max can be charged at speeds of up to 27W when connected to a charger of 30 W or greater.
The iPhone 12 series reached a charging speed of 20W, while the iPhone 11 series was limited to 18W. For the iPhone 13 series, Apple continues to support charging speeds of 20 W, but it seems that support for slightly higher charging speeds has been added for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
ChargerLAB testing revealed that the iPhone 13 Pro Max charges with a 30-watt charger and charges at speeds of up to 27 W. However, the device does not support a 27-watt charging speed throughout the charging cycle.

Higher charging speeds mean the iPhone 13 Pro Max should charge slightly faster than last year’s iPhone 12 Pro Max. The charging time of 0-100 percent should not change much, but the charging time of 0 to 50 percent should be much faster. Apple tends to slow down the charging speed after 60-70 percent to conserve battery life.
As confirmed by MacRumors, the smaller iPhone 13 Pro can also charge slightly faster at speeds up to 23W.
Note that the iPhone 13 Pro Max also has significantly longer battery life than the iPhone 12 Pro Max and previous Pro Max iPhones from Apple. So higher charging speeds also have to make up for that.
If you plan to buy a power adapter for your iPhone 13 Pro Max, consider buying a 30W or 45W. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy higher charging speeds on your iPhone. Additionally, you can use the same charger to charge your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro.
