Apple introduced the new iPhone range at Cupertino, at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park. This 2018 we have three new models with iPhone X design. It's the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR that, In spite of how rumored for months, they still do not have fast charging or USB-C chargers of any kind in the box.
You will remember the presentation of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus that Apple introduced fast (and wireless) charging on its models for the first time. This fast charge of up to 50% of capacity in 30 minutes requires a USB-C charger (such as MacBook and MacBook Pro) of at least 18 W, a USB-C to Lightning cable and the iPhone is compatible .
After seeing that it was necessary to buy accessories separately to enjoy this fast charge, many dared to say that The next iPhone models would include them. But it has not been the case. The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR bring the same 1-meter “lifelong” USB-A cable, along with a 5W USB-A charger, the same they have brought for years. So we still do not have fast charge directly out of the box and it's time to checkout.
Also, as USB-C chargers bloom and we have some cheap ones, The USB-C to Lightning cable, for now, must be the official Apple. It can be 1 or 2 meters for € 25 or € 39 respectively.
Another rumor that has not been fulfilled and that was less consistent but that a server expected with more enthusiasm was that The iPhone, directly, had a USB-C connection instead of Lightning (like MacBook and MacBook Pro).
Although many use and have spent the money on the necessary accessories for fast charging, the truth is that USB-A chargers dominate the market and, right now, an iPhone that included only a USB-C cable would force people to buy the USB-A cable from Lightning.
