Apple’s new iPhones won’t have fast chargers in the box: Report

The upcoming smartphones will almost certainly support fast charging.

In just a few hours, Apple will launch its much-anticipated 2018 line-up of iPhones at a special event in California. Over the past few months, the upcoming smartphones have had just about everything leaked about them. Among other features, the new iPhones are all but confirmed to support fast charging. However, it seems you ll have to fork out some extra cash to take advantage of that feature. Also Read - Infinix Hot 10 India launch officially set for October 4: Check expected specifications

Citing notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, a report by The Next Web has claimed that the Cupertino-based technology giant won t be including a fast charger in the box with the new iPhones, shipping them with the usual 5W (USB Type-A) charger, as it has done with all iPhones so far.

Now, the 2018 iPhones are almost certain to have support for fast charging, since last year s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X support them too. However, to actually charge the phones fast, you ll have to separately purchase one of Apple s USB Type-C power adapters, which have power outputs ranging from 29W to 87W. Apple s support page for the 2017 iPhones says that the devices can also be fast charged with a compatible third-party USB-C power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery specification, so it s quite likely that the upcoming iPhones will support third-party chargers as well.

If Kuo is indeed right, then Apple s decision to not include the fast charger in the box with the upcoming iPhones, is frankly disappointing. On the contrary, nearly all Android smartphones that support fast charging include fast chargers in the box.
