For those who are trying to find ways to charge iPhone faster we will offer you few tips how to do it. If you use the iPhone while charging then it will consume power and slow down the charging process. Some people recommend to put the device in Airplane mode as it turns off cellular and Wi-Fi radios. It is a good idea in an emergency, but it comes at the cost of not being reachable.
Tip 1. Charge your iPhone directly with a dedicated chargerOne of the most common ways to charge your device is by connecting it to your computer through a USB cable. But it is not the most efficient way to charge your iPhone or iPad.
Tip 2. Charge iPhone using USB cableA USB 1.0 or USB 2.0 port is capable of delivering up to 0.5A. MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs after 2012 come with USB 3.0 ports, which are capable of delivering 0.9A. Although, your iPhone comes with a charger capable of delivering 1A, so you’re better off plugging your iPhone into the dedicated charger rather than connecting it to a USB port.
Remember that there is an exception, the USB-C port in the new 12-inch Retina MacBook, supports up to 3A.
Tip 3. Use an iPad ChargerThe iPad charger delivers 2.1A (12W), which charges iPhone faster than its 1A (5W) charger.
The iPhone 6 Plus can be charged fully in approximately 2 hours 30 minutes using an iPad charger, whereas it can take more than 3 hours 45 minutes using the charger that ships with the iPhone.
Tip 4. Use Apple’s Lightning to USB Cable or ChargerTo get the best results, it is recommended to use the Lightning to USB cable and charger that comes with the iPhone or use an Apple-certified ones.
Note, that the wrong cable or chargers can slow down charging speeds. Such wrong chargers would take twice as much time to fully recharge your iPhone.
