In early May, Weibo said that Apple intended to replace its original 5W USB-A charging adapter with an 18-watt USB-C fast charger. Another source of information has once again increased this possibility. Recently quoted from Chargerlab quoted production line sources that the charger for the new iPhone in 2018 will use a USB-C port and provide 18W fast charge, and Apple will also come standard with Lightning to USB-C cable to connect the iPhone and the charger.
If the news is accurate, then this year we will see the first major change in the iPhone's standard charger, which hasn't changed since its birth.
We can see through the rendering of the new charger is no longer a rounded square design, become more flat oval, smaller and easy to carry. Both the charger and the Lightning to USB-C cable will be housed in the new iPhone box, allowing users to charge it through a socket or a computer equipped with a USB-C port. In addition, chargers in different countries and regions will have a difference in appearance.
The entry of the USB-C charger into the iPhone's standard list means that Apple's popularity and promotion of the USB-C specification will be more thorough. In fact, Apple had already played the USB-C idea a few years ago and tried to make people accept this new technical specification by changing all ports of new products such as the MacBook Pro to USB-C.
At present, the iPhone's standard charger does not fit in with its new handset. When the iPhone becomes super-powerful and speeds up while being full of various black technologies, the old low-speed 5W charger is obviously difficult to adapt to the needs of use. Before Apple decided to change the charger, many fruit powders have begun to be replaced with other chargers - such as fast charging iPhone 8 and iPhone X with 12W iPad charger. This smart idea is actually a frustrating move. If the iPhone's standard charger is a plus, then we don't need to look for other fast charging methods.All in all, the new charger's charging efficiency is at least twice that of current 5W chargers. According to a previous charge of the iPhone X with a third-party 18W cable tester, an hour can be about 80% full, and the official 18W charger should Can also reach this level, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and the future of the new iPhone support this charger, ordinary users will enjoy a great increase in charging speed.
