Photos: New iPhones for 2018 may come with this 18W USB-C charger
Apple's upcoming iPhone and iPad refresh for 2018 is rumored to take advantage of fast-charging out of the box, and that means, if true, it'll come with a USB-C charger.
Today we're seeing photos of an 18W USB-C charger that belongs to the iPhone XI and iPad Pro 2018, according to a rumored from Asian supply chain site Macotakara. It looks a lot like the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL charging brick.
The unverified charger you see could be a third-party fake, warns 9to5mac, but the size does perfectly fit in between existing the 5W iPhone and 10W iPad chargers.
Why it'll change your charging habits
The benefits are pretty great. You can fast-charge a newer iPhone from 0% to 50% in 30 minutes. It's a long-overdue replacement to Apple's old 5W charger.
