Additional profits off of their genuine apple accessories. Thus, creating demand. Hahaha. Crapple.

We on Android phones, however, with phones capable of 27, 30, 45, 55 or even 65 and soon 100 watt chargers have much more advanced and high quality battery circuit (and technology, such as those that move the heat away from the phone to the charging head or using dual charging lanes to split the energy traffic) that's just as safe if not safer that 5 watt your Apple phone is using.

Newtmas, 04 Oct 2019Totally not good for your battery. Btw this is for user saf... moreOld charging technology was bad for smartphone battery. Newer tech doesn't cause battery degradation. Stop trying to justify Apple restricting faster charging to the end user. None of the 40-50W charging capable devices have issues.
We are no longer in 2015.

another attampt to have an unfair adventage against competition.this is monopoly.us and euro curts must concen against it other than charge billions from google for incloding google chrome in their own free OS.

Btw this is for user safety since there is a lot of low quality wireless charging. Apple wants to prevent any damage or explosion that can endanger users. For me this is great move to see which wireless charging is certified and safe

Apple topping out at 18W wired charging.

Let's not even get started on wired charging which goes up to 65W and Samsung and others already working on delivering 100W charging.

Here's one example of Apple's concern for user safety.

[deleted post]Before the other side points out Google being a malware company as well as Huawei and their chinese spyware, all these American companies are in bed with the NSA.

Obama had a meeting with these Silicon Valley CEOs but they failed to stop the orange man bad.

They will try again in 2020.
