Awaiting its official announcement for this year’s lineup, rumor has it that Apple might start rolling out USB Type-C support for all their devices, starting with the upcoming iPhones this year.
According to reports, Apple might include an 18W power adapter with a USB-C to Lightning cable. Why is this important? Switching to a USB-C adapter from their usual 5W power adapter with a USB-A to Lightning cable will allow fast charging, fuelling up devices from 0 percent to 50 percent for 30 minutes and equating a one hour charge to 80 percent of battery life.
Reports also claim that besides the Type-C adapter, Apple might actually ditch the lightning port of their iPhones and iPads and replace it with a USB Type-C port starting 2019.
Apple is believed to be announcing three new iPhone ‘notched’ models which include a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch model with OLED displays and a 6.1-inch model with full-screen LCD.
