After I bought my 15 Pro Max a few days aho, I started sticking all the USB-C stuff I had into the phone to see what worked; so I plugged in the included Apple Watch pad charger to the USB-C port (accessory deteced), placed the AW9 on and it started charging.

I know it’s robbing Peter to pay Paul, but if you’re out and about and need a wee bit more battery juice in your watch, and you have your phone and watch charger - you’re good to gp.

I’ve always known that with USB C iPhones, you can use the Apple Watch USB C cable connected to your iPhone to charge your Apple Watch

For a minute I thought the Qi coils at the back of the phone can charge the Apple Watch - no extra cable needed... I think that would have been much more impressive. Oh well, maybe when iPhone 20 comes around....

Connect a MagSafe charger to the iPhone's USB-C port. Then attach MagSafe to the back of iPhone 15. You will get really long runtime.

The ouroboros of wireless chargers.

I remember the controversy over which phone will charge which when two are connected together. I guess that was another case of faux outrage.
