The rumors are still hot that Apple will include an 18-watt USB Type-C AC adapter with the upcoming iPhone lineup, giving it quick-charging capability right out of the box. Leaky photos have surfaced that support this rumor, but they could be wrong. But how about the old 5 watt USB Type A Power Cube being affected?
When Apple began removing USB Type A ports from MacBooks and MacBook Pros, many buyers were upset that they had to do both Buy new cables, adapters or hubs to connect to the USB Type-C Ports (also called USB-C ports) to work. If the new iPhones are equipped with a Lightning to USB-C cable, they will appreciate the change a little more, since they do not need additional cables for syncing or backup with iTunes.
However, those of us without these Only new USB-C notebooks in the MacBook family or other computers without USB-C ports ̵
If you have some Lightning to USB A cable, these still work with the upcoming iPhones and your older laptop or desktop, so you need to hang them or you'll end up paying for new ones if you want to connect via a wired connection with iTunes. For those of you who have never had an iPhone, you will certainly have to spend more money on additional cables.
While Apple installs a Lightning on 3.5mm headphone jack with newer iPhones, it never contained adapters when they got rid of USB-C on MacBooks. So it's safe to say that Apple will still not be included in newer MacBook family models, and the iPhone will certainly not have a USB-C port to USB-A male adapters. You probably will not even make one.
The USB Type C Specification Version 1.3 still advises against using "USB Type C Socket to USB Legacy Adapters" because of possible "invalid and potentially unsafe cable connections" that people might try out , While other manufacturers make these adapters, Apple is likely to stick to USB specifications. However, since Apple includes a Lightning dongle for its EarPods, there is the possibility that they will include an extra Lightning to USB cable for those with older computers. After all, Apple still sells the MacBook Air, Mac Pro and Mac mini without USB-C ports.
Apple's cheapest Lightning-to-USB-A cable costs $ 19, which is $ 10 more per piece than the Lightning to 3.5mm jack, which would cut into Apple's end result she would contain one in the box. Sure, the markup on these cables is probably crazy, but Apple does not want to know that.
So if you have an older computer without USB-C ports, you probably have to stick to your Lightning on USB-A cable or buy new ones if you upgrade to an iPhone model in late 2018.
Overall, Apple's transition to USB Type-C over Type-A is a good thing. The former can be clogged in any way, while the second fits only in one direction. USB C ports are less bulky and create slimmer laptops. They can provide more power, which means fast charging and, in some cases, even faster data transfer. So you have to branch off the A-cable someday, because nowadays everybody drives this route.
Nevertheless, the inclusion of a USB-C charger in the upcoming iPhone packages is just a rumor, and given the USB-C chargers for "fast charging" are more expensive overall, it is more likely that it is not even included. Apple's 30-watt USB-C power adapter, which is compatible with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X, costs $ 49, so the rumor of 18 watts is likely to cost ten dollars more than the current 5-watt power cube , Either way, you'll have to deal with more cables if you load faster and are compatible with older devices. That's until you completely convert to a USB C-only lifestyle with additional wireless charging.
