2018 IPhones To Come With Beefier 18W Chargers
- May 03, 2018 -

According to a report from Chongdiantou, Apple plans to use the new USB-C standard for the 2018 iPhones’ charger that comes in the box. Currently, Apple’s 2017 iPhones (iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X) all come with a 5W charger and a USB-A to Lightning cable even though all 2017 iPhones support faster charging via the USB Power Delivery standard.

The alleged charger will have a new oval design and sport an updated USB-C port with up to 18W of Power Delivery current, thus, the cable that would come with this new charger would be USB-C to Lightning connector.

This new default Apple charger would make it easier for new-gen MacBook owners who struggle with only having USB-C ports and living the #DongleLife This is certainly a move that Apple should have done for 2017.

Again, this isn’t totally confirmed, but offering a higher-capacity charger out of the box is certainly a move long overdue by Apple.
