Reports over the last few months have indicated Apple will be bundling a new 18W USB-C fast charger with its new iPhones this fall. Now, Macotakara says their source tells them you shouldn’t expect to buy one separately at launch.
The supplier said about 18W USB-C adapter compliant to USB Power Delivery 3.0 standard which is said to be packed with next iPhone that the products for selling single piece may not fill the demand for a while since the factory operate at full capacity only to make the products for packing into the body.
Manufacturing will be done by Flextronics, Delta Electronics, Lite-On Technology and Artesyn, etc.
The report also says third-party charger-makers will be able to take advantage of Apple’s “C48B” Lightning chip starting later this year, as Apple will likely add the technology to its MFi program in late 2018.
Type-C fast charging is already supported by the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, but a traditional USB-A charger is still included in the box.
