Now, almost more than six months into release, we’re are again hearing the rumors that point Apple to adopt USB-C for the 2018 iPhone. While the rumors suggest that Apple might be ready to make the shift, we cannot be certain for the final word lies with Apple.
The news comes from a Chinese social network, Weibo, where the information has been gathered from supply chain sources, suggesting that Apple plans to include an 18W USB-C power adaptor with the 2018 iPhone lineup. This also gives room to the notion that the company will also include a USB-C to Lightning cable. With that said, we can say that the 2018 iPhone lineup will feature fast charging right out of the box via the given adapter.
The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the iPhone X also features support for fast charging. However, the company sold the fast charger separately and the one included in the box does not merely does the trick as it is pretty standard. So having the fast charging adapter that ships with the iPhone would definitely be a welcome addition as it would mean a 50 percent charge on a 30 min plug-in time.
