Apple will continue to include the same outdated charger on the 2019 iPhone

For two generations now, the 2017 and 2018 iPhones are compatible, Apple smartphones support fast charging and can charge half the battery in less than 30 minutes. Not the best figures in the industry, but something to be thankful for when you don’t have much time to charge your iPhone.

However, despite this capability, Apple does not include a charger compatible with the quick charge in the iPhone case . This is one of Apple’s most controversial measures, especially in view of the price of their iPhone. A new report assures that Cupertino is not considering changing this situation.

Apple currently has fast charging on many of its devices, the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, XS, XS Max and XR support this technology . However, the charger that comes in the box is still the same one that Apple has been using for years that only reaches 5W, so to enjoy this feature you have to buy extra accessories.

As MacOtakara explains today, the 2019 iPhones will continue to use the same Lightning port as the current models, contrary to what was thought about switching to USB-C and the charger and cable will remain the same. That is, we will have a charger with USB-A connection and only 5W.

This is all rather illogical, at least from the point of view of Apple devices. For many years Apple has only included USB-C connections in its MacBook, which means that the cable that comes in the box of the current iPhone, and presumably the iPhone XI, cannot be connected .

Another thing that doesn’t fit is the inclusion of a 5W charger, when for example the iPad includes a 12W charger that allows the iPhone to be charged faster. Making iPhones compatible with fast charging and not including the charger is something that spoils the user experience that Apple always boasts about.
