One of the only gripes I really have with the third-gen iPad is that it seems to take ages to charge. It’s okay if you do it overnight, but it’s a real drag for when you need a quick refill.
Well, Apple has released a new iPad charger. It’s 12W as opposed to the 10W charger that came with the older models.
Website 9to5Mac asked Apple, and they received a confirmation that it is, in fact, faster:
“We don’t have an exact percentage of how much faster it would charge but you should see an increase in speed.”
Unfortunately, they don’t know how much faster. Oh well. Let’s hope a few people test it out, and that it ends up being worth the investment. At least we know that future models will come with this charger, right?
