A little over a month ago, some renders of the supposed new 18W USB-C charger that should accompany the new iPhones, expected for September 2018. For now, rumors say that the new accessory will be able to charge devices with fast charging technology, so the USB port -A would be replaced, for the first time, by USB-C.
To further heat up the discussions and wind up the rumors, the site Chongdiantou released new images of what could be the charger for future iPhones they were shared by the site Mac Otakara and subsequently at MacRumos. Despite following the general idea of renders released last May, the images show an American standard adapter that is even plumper and not as long.
Compared to the current 5W adapter, the design of the new 18W charger has a much more oval shape than the hexagonal style with ?two ends? on the sides that we are used to. However, the main change is the switch from USB-A to USB-C. And, as we commented, if this change is in fact implemented by Apple, it has everything to unify the charger of iPhones and iPads, adapting a single model for the gadget cases.
Still, we should not trust the images published catholically because the inscriptions on the adapter do not follow the Apple standard without mentioning, of course, the difference of this image to the surrender, which shows that some may be wrong. As pointed out by the 9to5Mac, it is possible that this is another manufacturer's charger, which may well have copied the adapter style from the renders disclosed.
It is currently possible to take advantage of fast loading iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X just using the USB-C charger on the latest MacBooks. With them, phone batteries charge 50% in about half an hour. Much better, isn't it?
True or not, we will wait for more concrete indications of the possible change of chargers in Apple gadgets. In addition, another accessory that has already been the subject of rumors for the next iPhones is the Lightning adapter for headphones, which should stop following the new devices.
