Apple is slowly catching up on how the modern smartphone is charged. Last year saw the introduction of wireless charging in the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, and this year Cupertino is expected to bundle a ‘fast’ charger in the retail package of its new iOS smartphones, allowing more power to be taken aboard in a shorter period.

Forbes’ Gordon Kelly first reported on Apple’s plans in April this year, noting that the fast charger is already an Apple product, but only available as an accessory. The inclusion of the charger in the box would allow Apple to offer more value for money, as well as allowing it to match the rapid charging times of devices like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the OnePlus 6.

The latest leaked images around the new iPhones show Apple’s new charger, and the standout feature is that these chargers are USB-C based. That means Apple will package the new iPhone X handsets with a USB-C to lightning charging cable. Given the latest MacBook machines only have USB-C ports on them, Apple is finally shipping a charging cable that offers dongle-free connection to its own hardware.

The inclusion of the fast charger is welcome, although I do wonder why it has taken so long for Apple to do so. The next question is when Apple will release hardware that will enable fast wireless charging using Apple’s AirPower.

That was announced at the iPhone X launch but still remains a vapourware product that is not yet available for consumers to buy.
