To say that technology companies are most concerned about environmental protection, Apple is definitely in the front row, from the iPhone 12 Apple no longer give away the charging head in the name of environmental protection, but also announced a carbon peak target to continue to reduce carbon emissions. And the iOS 16 official release early this morning will also add clean energy charging in the future. Apple confirmed this new feature in the iOS 16 release, saying that iOS 16 will support clean energy charging in future upgrades, aiming to reduce the iPhone’s carbon emissions by optimizing the charging time of the grid using clean energy.
Apple did not specifically explain the technical principles of this clean energy charging, speculation will be based on the power sources of different regions of the grid to make a distinction, this information is available in the United States grid statistics.

In addition, Apple this feature also has practical value, the United States Texas, and California has recently experienced a crisis of power tension, traditional energy generation is affected, but clean energy is increasingly available, the restrictions will be less.
But Apple still has little progress in fast charging. The iPhone 14 series is said to support a maximum of 29W (14.5V/2A) charging power, consistent with the iPhone 13 series.

It is expected that models like the iPhone 14 Pro Max may take 2 hours to fill up, which is a bit slow compared to Android phones that take around 30 minutes to 1 hour to fill up the 5000mAh battery with fast charging.
