Images of what seems to be a prototype of an 18W power adapter with USB Type-C port for the upcoming iPhone models have leaked out on the internet. This comes days after leaked CAD renders of the upcoming iPhone seemed to indicate that Apple may be planning to shift to USB Type-C. According to a report by Macrumors, it looks like Apple is planning to include a Lightning to USB Type-C cable inside the boxes of the iOS-powered devices that it will launch later this year.

The report also showcased the alleged prototype of “an engineering prototype of the actual U.S. version of the charger.” As pointed in the report, we can’t really confirm if the image is authentic or not but it is in line with what the recent reports have been indicating. As in past, Apple has not issued any official statement about the image or the reports. The report added that the design of the charger is similar to what the leaked CAD renders indicated except being a bit “fatter than deiced”. Analyzing the image, there is nothing special about the adapter and it simply looks like a usual power adapter with USB Type-C port on one end and “pair of prongs” on the other end.

Watch: Apple iOS 12 features

This comes right after it was reported that Apple is planning to launch a dual-SIM variant of the iPhone in China so that iPhone can better compete with its competition. However, this variant will only be limited to China as the country does not support Apple SIM which allows for dual SIM support with the help of a single embedded SIM.

For the people who don’t know, Apple SIM is a virtual SIM which allows users to switch between service providers according to the pricing, connectivity and other offers that they provide.
