While we’ve already seen our fair share of upcoming iPhone X dummies, 3D CAD renders, and what not, we’re still not very sure about the new features that will arrive with the new trio of Apple handsets this year. Speaking of which, it looks like fast chargers will finally be coming packaged in the box, finally. A new leak picturing an 18W charger by Apple has surfaced online today that suggests that new iPhones will finally free Apple users from the wall-hugging curse.
We do understand that Apple’s latest crop of phones do support fast charging but that charging brick does not come with the box. Instead, you have to purchase it for an added $50 over an already jaw-dropping price of $999. The new iPhones will ship with the fast charger out of the box, today’s new leak suggests.
The 18W brick isn’t branded with Apple’s logo but the source is convinced this is an accessory of the Cupertino giant’s next smartphone. It supports inputs of 100-240V 50/60 Hz 0.45A and outputs of 5V/3A and 9V/2A. Also, it is a USB Type-C enabled brick instead of a lightning port as is visible. The new chargers should help juice up the new iPhone X to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
Unfortunately, there is no way to verify the authenticity of the leak for now which is why we wouldn’t bet our money on this feature for now. Especially, with recent reports, that the new iPhone X would be completely cutting the cord and going wireless.
