San Francisco: Tech giant Apple is likely working on a dual-port USB-C wall charger and it may see a release in the near future as an analyst has claimed it will soon be entering mass production.

On Friday, a support document briefly posted then removed from Apple’s website described the unreleased Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter, reports AppleInsider.

While the leak did not indicate when it will launch, it seems that it could be a matter of a few months before it sees the light of day.

In a Saturday tweet, TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo picked up on the leak by claiming components for the item “are nearing mass production”.

While an item entering production is a positive sign for a product, there’s no definitive timeframe for its release, but it could easily surface within a few months.

Kuo is bullish on the prospects of the adapter, adding that estimates for its shipments in 2022 are in the range of 2 million to 3 million.

Apple has been thought to be working on GaN chargers for a while, with a release sometime in 2022 speculated.

GaN (Gallium Nitride) power adapters are typically smaller and more power-efficient than silicon-based versions, though it is unknown if the leaked charger is a GaN model.

In March, Kuo offered a prediction that Apple’s first GaN-based charger would be “about 30W,” a claim he also reiterated in the tweet.
