iPhone 2018: First Images of the Apple Fast Charge USB-C Chargers
This year's iPhones might finally come with a USB-C fast charger in the box
Apple was heavily criticized in the previous year for its decision to settle with a $1000+ expensive iPhone X models with a ridiculous 5-watt charger with standard USB-A cable. Anyone who likes to charge quickly and does not rely on wireless charging, they could probably get a MacBook charger and an extra USB C lightening cable for fast charging.
Rumors that Apple would be preparing a new charger for its upcoming iPhones with fast battery charging have been popping up the rumors for months, but only now have appeared what could be the first photos of this supposed accessory. New images from Japan fuel the hope of faster charging for the next generation iPhone.
The charger would have larger dimensions than expected, considering that it would have 18W of power against the traditional 5W that the company delivers in its traditional chargers. This new charger would bring a USB-C input, which is clearly shown in the images released by MacOtakara.
The information printed on the bottom of the charger indicates that the accessory would actually be 18 W, but it is not possible to confirm that Apple, in fact, manufactures this item. Compared with previously rendered renderings, the loader design looks different, somewhat larger than expected. Therefore, there is a possibility that these images will be from a parallel loader to the next iPhones, not the one made by Apple itself.
9to5 Mac has doubts about the rumor. The charger shown on the images disseminated by Macotara does not look authentic, they say. If the rumor is true, we will probably find out in September.
Along with this new charger, Apple should embed a USB-C cable for Lightning in the box of new iPhones in 2018 to provide fast charging. However, there are rumors that the company could entirely abandon its proprietary entry and adopt the USB-C directly in the body of the new iPhones. This new charger could be a first step to switch to USB-C. The iPhone 2019 could indeed be equipped with a USB-C port, reported Digitimes in June.
With this, the cable shipped in the box of the next phones of the brand would be USB-C at both ends, similar to what Google already does in the Pixel line.
