Here are some tips to help you charge your iPhone as quickly as possible.

1. Upgrade your iPhone charger and cable

Since the release of the iPhone 8 in 2017, Apple has equipped its smartphones with fast charging. This feature works with various official or third-party charging accessories.

New Apple or third-party chargers that support the USB Power Delivery (PD) fast charging standard will work. You’ll also need a Lighting to USB-C power cable. Combine these two features and you can charge your iPhone to 50% in just 30 minutes.

Standard fast power for USB PD chargers is between 30W-60W per port. When purchasing a charger, it is important to check the total capacity versus the port capacity. Some chargers claim to produce 30W, but in dual-port chargers, each USB port is usually divided into 18W and 12W.

2. Turn off the iPhone

Whether it’s an iPhone or an Android phone, they’ll definitely charge faster when you turn off the device. If disconnecting your phone from everything (messages, emails, calls, reminders, etc.) doesn’t affect your work, try turning it off before charging.

3. Put iPhone in Airplane Mode

If you can’t completely power off, your next option is to put your iPhone in Airplane Mode.

The iPhone’s cellular connection is one of the biggest energy consumers. When not using Wi-Fi, our phones are constantly looking for the nearest cell tower. Your device emits radio waves to determine its location and constantly analyzes signal strength to measure distance from cell towers for the best connection possible. It’s a lot of work, and will only increase power demands when cell towers are sparse and your phone has to get there by sending out a stronger signal.

Airplane mode turns off all wireless connections on your device. Tests have shown that this feature can reduce the time to full charge by a few minutes.

4. Turn on power saving mode

Like Airplane Mode, iPhone Battery Saver can speed up the charging process by reducing the number of tasks your phone needs to perform. With battery saver enabled, most unnecessary background tasks will be temporarily reduced or suspended.

Some of the affected features include automatic fetching of emails, automatic downloads, certain visual effects, iCloud, automatic locking and using 5G networks.

It also suspends background app refresh, a feature that allows apps not currently in use to continue checking for new content and updates. Therefore, please consider carefully before using this mode.

To toggle Battery Saver, open Settings, select Battery, and toggle the Battery Saver button at the top of the screen.

5. Keep your iPhone cool

It’s important to keep your iPhone cool while charging so it can perform at its best. That means avoiding extreme external heat from the sun, as well as heat generated by the iPhone itself.

To block external heat, keep iPhone out of direct sunlight and avoid placing it on hot surfaces, such as other electronic devices. You also need to stop using apps that increase the temperature while charging.

Resource-intensive games are often the main cause of overheating on mobile devices, so you should avoid playing these games while your phone is charging. Ideally, you shouldn’t use your iPhone while it’s charging.

6. Avoid wireless chargers

This solution is best avoided when fast charging is required. While wireless charging is convenient, it’s not as fast as traditional wired charging.

If you don’t believe me, you can look at the capacity chart of Apple’s MagSafe Charger. Apple says it can offer chargers up to 15W and 30W or even 60W when using traditional cables.

In testing, Consumer Reports also found large differences in charging times. Apple’s MagSafe Wireless Charger charges an iPhone 12 Pro in 2 hours and 36 minutes. In comparison, Apple’s Lightning cable does the same task in just 2 hours and 45 minutes.
