Lightning cables for USB-C with MFi certificate may arrive ahead of schedule

Apple confirms that iPhones 8, 8 Plus and X can get fast recharge with third-party USB-C adapters

As we reported in our article detailing the differences between new iPhones and their predecessors, they now support fast recharge.

The bad news is that to get this benefit, consumers need to buy not only one MacBook charger (Pro), be it 29W, 61W or 87W, as well as a Lightning cable to USB-C (either 1m or 2m) since the iPhones 8, 8 Plus and X still come with a conventional Lightning to USB-A cable in their boxes.

Apple USB-C to Lightning cable

In a new support article, Apple happily delivered some exciting news in this regard: it will also work with the new third-party USB-C power adapter iPhones, those that support USB Power Delivery (USB-PD). That is, users will still need to spend on a Lightning cable for USB-C, but at least not to burn unnecessary money on one of the MacBook adapters (Pro).

According to Apple, the fast recharging of new iPhones gives up to 50% battery life in just 30 minutes.
