There have been plenty of rumors about the type of connector that Apple will use for its new iPhones with now that the iPad Pro and its MacBook line use USB-C. We're finally starting to get a clearer picture of what that reality might look like come September. According to Japanese blog Mac Otakara the new iPhone models, of which there are rumored to be three in line with last year's release, if we have been hearing. They can, however, ship with a faster 18W USB-C charger and a Lightning to USB-C cable.
That would make a lot of sense. Apple may not be ready for this lightning just yet, but it looks like the company can make making iOS users live a little bit easier. It's been a mystery why Apple's new smartphones with the same 5W cube charger include it for years, despite designing its handsets since the iPhone 8 with fast-charging capabilities.
Last year's iPad Pro redesign brought USB-C to Apple's tablet line, and with it came and faster 18W charger. Right now, to take advantage of that charger with your iPhone, you need to spend nearly $ 50 on the 18W charger and the Lightning on USB-C adapter, as noted by MacRumors . But shipping that setup in the box is a smart way to bring faster charging to the newest iPhones while still retaining the Lightning port to help ease the transition in the future. Additionally, this would mean you could finally plug your phone into your Mac without needing to purchase a new cable.
