The specifications and appearance of the original charging head of the iPhone have almost never changed since it was born, so it has also become the name of the “ancestor charge head”. But in this fast-paced era, Apple has finally stopped watching. According to media reports, the next-generation iPhone will be upgraded with original charging heads, which not only change the appearance, but also completely abandon the Type-A interface, and support 18W fast charging.
The news comes from the domestic media charge head net, the report claims that the charging head of the next generation of iPhone will have great changes in appearance, specifications and interfaces. In terms of appearance, the new charger will be changed from the previous round-cornered square to “racetrack”, which is also a design commonly used by other mobile phone manufacturers.
In terms of specifications, the new charger power is as high as 18W, catching up with the mainstream fast-charging specifications in one breath, which is a great leap forward from 5W/1A 5W. In terms of the fast charging protocol, Apple will certainly use its own protocol to meet the certification requirements of MFi. However, this charger also supports the USB PD protocol, which is the most widely used charging protocol. It seems that like hugging the Qi agreement on wireless charging, while keeping it closed, Apple is actually embracing and opening up a bit.
The most important thing is the interface. On the new charger, the coarse Type-A interface is replaced by the small Type-C. the data line of iPhone is formerly the Type-A interface to Lightning and will be replaced by the Type-C to Lightning interface. The charger terminal interface is changed from A to C. And the MFi certification from Type-C to Lightning will begin in 2019, with a large number of third-party accessory vendors following suit. The left is Type-A, is the current mainstream USB interface, the right Type-C.
In fact, on the MacBook, Apple has already started the Type-C interface on a large scale. Now that the iPhone has come, it means that the space-consuming Type-A interface can finally withdraw from the stage of history. With Apple's push, the market is charging. Devices, data lines, and mobile power sources will also usher in a wave of Type-C upgrades. Android vendors will certainly upgrade their chargers to Type-C quickly (most data types for Android phones are already Type-C). , so when we buy mobile phone accessories next year, we must figure out the interface!
