But, it is currently reported that the Tim Cook-led company is set to add rapid charging-supported adapters and Lightning wires directly within the box of their 2018 iPhone family. A distinctive 18W power adapter is said to be developed to deliver the new encounter. The 2018 lineup is indeed far rumoured to add three iPhone versions that are likely to have battery packs larger than the 2716mAh battery of this iPhone X.As reported with a tipster on Weibo, also spotted by MacRumors, the brand new adapters and Lightning cables will include USB-C and will enable charging of an iPhone in 0 to 50 percent in about 30 minutes. This sounds similar to the rapid charging technologies that lots of Android makers offer from the current industry. What’s more, the design appeared from the leaked Weibo article indicate that Apple is planning to overhaul the recent iPhone adapter with a USB Power Delivery unit that may feature a USB-C port.
Additionally, third-party accessories manufacturers are not allowed officially to make USB-C to Lightning wires. But the Weibo report suggests that the iPhone maker could open up the standard and permit its own MFi partners to start manufacturing compatible cables in 2019.
The availability of USB-C quickly charging on the new iPhone versions, if it functions true, will definitely upgrade the charging encounter from the standard USB Type-A power adapter that provides 12W of power. However, we must await a formal word to observe the authenticity of this new improvement.
Late last year, former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple is planning to provide larger battery packs over the 2018 iPhone models, together with all the rumoured 5.8-inch iPhone featuring a battery that range between 2900mAh and 3000mAh. The new versions are also very likely to retain wireless charging support which Apple introduced with all the 2017 iPhone lineup.
