The Best Apple Wireless Chargers for 2023

If you’re an Apple fan, chances are you have a drawer filled with white wires and adapters for charging or connecting your AirPods, Apple Watch, and iPhone. This chaotic array is at odds with Apple’s sleek, streamlined design aesthetic. Luckily, with the rise of wireless charging, it’s an easy problem to fix.

We’ve selected our favorite wireless chargers that handle anything from your iPhone to your entire Apple device lineup. Note that these are mostly for older models that don’t support MagSafe, though we’ve included some MagSafe options here. If you have a newer iPhone or other compatible Apple product, check out our list of the best MagSafe chargers that offer faster 15W charging speeds.
