Waiting for your phone to charge is worse than it dying. There are several devices and settings that you can use to get your iPhone back to normal in a fraction of time. This article will show you how to fast charge your iPhone and prolong the life of your battery.
Wall Chargers are a great way to charge your iPhone faster.
A wall charger is the fastest way to charge an iPhone. An 18W (watt or higher) power adapter will speed up your iPhone 8 and newer models. For fast charging, you’ll need a 20W power adapter if you have an iPhone 12.
Fast charging is a feature that all iPhones released after the iPhone 8 have. It allows the battery to be charged up to 50% in just 30 minutes. The test shows that it takes around 90 minutes for an iPhone to be charged to 50% with the 5W charger included with most models.
Apple has never included a fast charging adapter for the iPhone 11. Apple has never included a fast charging adapter with the iPhone 11.
The wattage can be found on most power adapters. You can also multiply the amps and volts to calculate the wattage. A charger with a power output between 10V and 2A will produce a wattage of around 20W.
It is best to ensure that your power adapter supports a fast charge. Apple states that any third-party power adapter must support USB Power Delivery (USB PD).

Apple suggests that you plug your iPhone into a computer and not a wall charger. You could end up draining your iPhone’s battery rather than charging it.
You can also use a fast-charging cable
You will need a USB-C Cable to make the most of your iPhone’s fast-charging abilities. The newer USB-C cables are capable of charging devices up to 100W, unlike the older USB-A cables which can only charge 12W.
You should ensure that the USB-C cable to Lightning is MFi certified if you’re going to purchase a third-party USB connector. You should also look for the C94 version of the USB-C cable to Lightning, and not the C89 or C48 versions.

To save the battery, turn down your screen brightness
Turning down the screen brightness is one of the best ways to speed up your iPhone’s charge. Open the Settings app on your iPhone and tap Brightness. Drag the slider under Brightness left.
