Charge your iPhone with an iPad or Mac notebook power adapter

You can use Apple USB power adapters for iPad and Mac notebooks to charge iPhone, iPod, Apple Watch, AirPods, and other Apple products.


You can use Apple 12W and 10W USB power adapters to charge your iPad, iPhone, iPod, Apple Watch, and other Apple accessories, like AirPods and Siri Remote. Just connect your device to the power adapter with the Lightning to USB Cable, 30-pin to USB cable, or Apple Watch charger that came with your device. 

Using an Apple 12W or 10W USB power adapter charges some Apple devices and accessories faster than a 5W power adapter. When you use an Apple 29W, 30W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter and Apple USB-C to Lightning cable, you can fast charge these models:

  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation)
  • iPad Pro 12.9-inch
  • iPad Pro 10.5-inch

 If you're not sure which power adapter came with your iPad, look on the bottom of the power adapter or identify your iPad model.
