Upcoming iPhones fast charger leaks with USB-C port

The upcoming line-up of iPhones which will be unveiled by Apple in September is tipped to come bundled with a fast charger out of the box. Or at least that is what a new leak is suggesting. The leak contains the photos of a brand new 18W charger by Apple which will connect to a Lightning to USB Type-C cable in order to charge the upcoming devices. Its size is in the middle between the actual 5W iPhones charger and the 10W iPad chargers.

The new charger supports input parameters of 100-240V 50/60 Hz 0.45A and the output parameters 5V/3A and 9V/2A, according to leaked info. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee you the authenticity of this leak. This goes totally in contrast with recent reports suggesting that the upcoming iPhones would come without a Lightning port and it would be possible to charge them only by using a wireless charger.

In case you don’t know, the latest line-up of Apple phones already supports fast charging, but the charger contained in the box does not. So, it is necessary to purchase an additional charger costing $50 to use the fast charging profile. With the new fast charger, it should be possible to charge the device from 0 to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
