The iPhone 12 could boast a 20-watt USB-C power adapter, according to images posted online Wednesday by Apple leaker Mr White. By comparison, the iPhone 11 Pro comes with an 18-watt USB-C power adapter, while the regular iPhone 11 ships with a 5-watt charger.

It’s not clear from the tweet whether the new charger, provided this report is correct, will come with all new models of the iPhone 12 — or whether it will be an exclusive for the high-end iPhone 12 Pro.

According to Apple tipster Jon Prosser, the iPhone 12 will come in four different models. There will be regular and Pro editions of the handset, as with last year. However, Apple also will offer two screen size options for each. This would make the iPhone 12 the biggest iPhone launch in history in terms of the different models available. Screen size will reportedly include a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch models and an enormous 6.7-inch handset.

Of course, as with all rumors, there’s no guarantee that this latest report is accurate. Still, if it is true, the more-powerful charger might go some way to making up for the rumored lack of EarPods bundled with this year’s iPhone.
