Details have leaked out of an Apple USB-C wall charger more powerful than any the company currently offers. This has spawned speculation that it‘s for the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro expected to launch soon.
A power adapter that offers more current leads to faster recharges.

The hardware — not pictured — is supposedly the same size as the current 87W Apple charger.
That particular charger is the most powerful currently offered by this company, and it comes with the 15-inch MacBook Pro.

Rumors of an Apple power adapter that offers even more power quickly lead to speculation that it’s for the 16-inch MacBook Pro, a device that will offer the largest screen in an Apple laptop since 2011. The original source says nothing about this, however.
Still, if it is for the enhanced macOS laptop, then it should come to light soon. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is supposedly launching before the end of this year, and could be the star of an Apple October event.
