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, the device will come with a USB-C charger.
Now we've seen photos of an 18W USB-C charger that belongs to the iPhone XI and iPad Pro 2018, according to a rumor 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 fit perfectly in between the existing 5W iPhone and 10W iPad chargers.
The iPhone XI, iPhone 9 and iPad Pro 2018 should include an 18W charger and lightning-to-USB-C cable to support fast charging without the need to buy anything extra.
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. And if this rumored new charger is the real deal it'll be a long-overdue replacement for Apple's old 5W charger.
