“iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max support fast charging, but Apple didn’t include the fast charger in the box, making it tiresome to charge these devices”
It’s almost September, meaning the new iPhones are just around the corner. And that means the rumour mill is abuzz about the iPhone 11. Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 11 series on September 10th and a new report suggests that it will include a USB Type-C charger in the box. According to a tweet by ChargerLAB, the iPhone 11 will finally switch Apple’s customary 5W charger for an Apple USB-C charger included in the box. In the past, while the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max supported fast-charging, Apple didn’t include the fast charger in the box. As a result, the phones took exceptionally long to charge, by today’s standards.

However, using the USB-C cable and charger in the box would mean that the iPhones will have fast-charging in the box. It seems the iPhone 11 series models will still have Lightning connector support, through the same port. This makes sense, since the Lightning connector is still part of many Apple accessories and the company wouldn’t want to affect their sales suddenly. It’s worth noting that while ChargerLAB had leaked Apple’s USB-C charger last year and was right about it, they had also indicated that the 2018 iPhones would have these in the box. So, it’s possible that the tipster may be off point this time as well.
The good thing though is that with only a few weeks remaining before Apple unveils of the device, we won’t have to wait very long. As mentioned earlier, the company is expected to announce the iPhone 11 series on September 10th, which is in line with when the iPhone launches annually. The 2019 version is expected to have a new processor from Apple, along with a new Taptic Engine and more than two cameras. As for the names, the company is expected to call them iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max and launch all three simultaneously.
