Apple 18W USB-C Power Adapter is now available to purchase on the Apple Store. Well, this is the same charger that comes bundled with the new 2018 iPad Pro models.
At $29, this is the cheapest way to fast charge your iPhone and your old iPads that supports fast charging. Also, you can use it to charge other devices, but it won’t work at its full potential.
The earlier options include the 30W USB-C Power Adapter for $49. The high cost of the charger was due to its support for the Apple MacBooks at first place. The 18W $29 charger is far more suitable for the iPhone.
Interestingly, this is the first time when we can say that the Apple product seems to be cheaper than its competitor. For instance, Google’s 18W USB-C charger that comes with the Pixel 3 uses the same USB PD protocol and costs $35.
Though the charger is not so costly, we hope that the company will bundle the fast chargers in the box for the future iPhones.
