How many Watts per iphone or device on PoE Switch?

I'm looking to purchase a PoE Switch but not sure how many Watts I need. From what I read the articles indicate that an 8 port 130W PoE switch will power all the devices. I'm not familiar with the "tech" so forgive my ignorance.

 Does this mean I can get away with a 4 port switch that has 65W? Do I need a certain amount of Watts per iPhone? Of do I need a 130W switch regardless of how many iPhones I connect?

Also, does it matter if I get a managed switch, or is an unmanaged switch ok?

Any guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.
