Apple's upcoming 2018 iPhone will be unveiled this September, but according to our exclusive sources inside production lines, ChargerLab already has early information on the device: it will ship with an 18-watt USB-C to Lighning fast charger.
Most notably, it features a USB-C port. ChargerLab also took that information and created a set of renders depicting what the new 18W power brick could look like.
Earlier this month, a report from Weibo first detailed the 2018 iPhone accessory and mentioned the charger will have a different form factor, consistent with today's leak.
To be clear, Apple is not likely to ditch its Lightning standard in favor of USB-C.
This iPhone X charger leak is so dumb I actually believe it
The renders show off the European version of the newly designed charger, as indicated by the rounded prongs. In other words, expect a Lightning to USB-C cable and a USB-C power adapter. Instead, the reports hint that the company will swap out the traditional USB-A for the newer USB-C port.
Renders produced by ChargerLab show the supposed USB-C adapter possessing an extruded pill shape similar to certain prior iPad and iPhone accessories, but different from the rounded square shapes now used by Apple's wall chargers.
Besides faster charging, there are more advantages to this move. The iPhone X and iPhone 8 both support fast-charging, but you need to buy yourself either an iPad charger or a USB-C charger to get faster-charging speeds.
That feature allows iPhones to reach 50 percent charge in just about 30 minutes. A new report says that will change this year, as Apple is said to be preparing a much higher-speed USB-C charger to bundle with iPhones - an appealing claim, but one worth taking with a grain of salt. Apple has included 10W and 12W chargers with various iPad models in the past, so this new charger - if real - will beat them all on charging speed.
