This year, the predicament of latest Apple phone users could change as a leak reveals Apple could start offering USB-C adapter along with USB-C to lightning cable for 2018 iPhone models.
Macotakara, a Japanese mac-based blog have released a leaked image showing off an iPhone charging adapter which is an 18W USB-C. The adapters used for the current iPhone models possess the capacity of 12W and fall in the category of USB Type-A which are comparatively slower when it comes to charging speed. The increase in power delivery from the adapter might also increase its size to some extent which could be seen from the leaked image.
