While the source of this information remains uncertain, it appears to validate that the iPhone 15 Pro models share the same maximum charging speeds as their predecessors, the iPhone 14 Pro models. For iPhone 15 core models or superiors Apple recommends using  a 20W or higher adapter which will ensure you a 50% charge within half an hour, in fact the same way its predecessor iPhone 14. If the power transfer remains constant throughout the charging process, then you need to wait for an hour for a full charge.

Smartphone Peak Charging Power 0-50% charge time
iPhone 15 ~20W (expected) 30 minutes
iPhone 15 Pro Max ~27W (expected) ~25 minutes (expected). 30 minutes with 20W adapter
Galaxy S23 Ultra 45W 17 minutes
Motorola. Edge 40 Pro 125W 10 minutes
OnePlus 11 100W 10 minutes
Pixel 7 21W 30 minutes
ChargerLAB, a website, determined last year that Apple's 30W USB-C power adapter was the most affordable option capable of charging the iPhone 14 Pro models at their maximum speeds of up to 27W. It is likely that this will remain the case for the iPhone 15 Pro models, with the adapter priced at $39 on Apple's online store in the U.S. Also read : iPhone 15 Models Feature Slightly Increased Battery Capacities Compared to iPhone 14 While real-world tests are still pending, it appears that the 35W charging rumor was inaccurate. All four new iPhone 15 models are set to launch on Friday, September 22.
