How to charge iPhone 14?

If you're wondering does iPhone 14 come with a charger, the answer is a little complex. The iPhone 14 models don't come with a charging adapter, but you will find a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box.

Plus, if you are a first-time iPhone buyer or just don't have a compatible adapter, you will need to buy one separately. Apple stopped selling the iPhone with a charging adapter in the box since 2020.

Even though the battery capacities of the iPhone have increased over the last couple of years, faster-charging speeds for the iPhone series aren't as quick as some would hope.

With that said, according to battery specs from Apple, you can get up to 50% charge in 30 minutes with a 20W charging adapter or higher. 

But if you're finding your iPhone 14 is charging slower than expected, try a charging adapter with a higher wattage, such as 30W.

iPhone 14 wireless charging

All of the iPhone 14 series have wireless charging capabilities. According to Apple, they have MagSafe wireless charging of up to 15W and Qi wireless charging of up to 7.5W. 

Please note, you will need to buy a wireless or MagSafe charger separately if you don't already have one. 

Here's how to wirelessly charge your iPhone:

  1. Connect your charger to a power source 
  2. Place the charger on a flat surface 
  3. Place your iPhone onto the centre of the charger with the display facing upwards
  4. Your iPhone should charge within a few seconds
