Now, ChargerLab reports that with iOS 13.1, Apple is only supporting 7.5W wireless charging for pads that support fixed-frequency voltage regulation which is recommended by Apple. This means that even the new iPhone 11 lineup which supports up to 10W fast wireless charging tops out a mere 5W on chargers which delivered 7.5W back on iOS 13.

Back in 2017, Apple brought 5W wireless charging to its lineup with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X. Later on, with the release of iOS 11.2 those models could also benefit from faster 7.5W speeds with Apple-certified Qi wireless chargers. The iPhone XS lineup and the new iPhone 11s can go up to 10W provided you have the right charging pad.
