Apple’s 2019 iPhones To Ship With The Same 5W Charge Brick, Leaks Suggest

Ever since the very first iPhone, Apple has taken more than a few bold moves over the years for its future smart devices. The manufacturer was one of the very first to axe off the headphone jack and implement a notched design in its smartphone. Apple users, however, have grown accustomed to all this change mostly due to the amazing services provided by the company like iTunes, iCloud and various other apps.

Last year was more than eventful for the manufacturer with the release of a new iPad Pro, MacBook Air and most importantly the annual updated iPhones. Apart from all the innovation integrated into the new iPhones, one thing of notice was the fact that Apple no longer provided a headphone dongle in the box. The fact that the previous generation of iPhones did actually include the dongle makes users wonder how a thousand dollar smartphone cuts down its expenditure.

Fans were disappointed, to say the least, but the story does not end here. According to a report by Benjamin Mayo, a credible tipster, the upcoming iPhone will most certainly ship with the standard 5W slow charger. This means that the new iPhone despite having fast charging support would only come with a slow charger which could then be replaced later on by purchasing a fast charger. Xiaomi, on the other hand, shipped the Mi Mix 3 with a fast charger and a wireless charger which is definitely worth noting for folks over at Apple.

Over the years the iPhone has gained a lot of traction in the premium smartphone market space thanks to amazing software support and the irresistible Apple ecosystem. Recent moves by the brand have been doubtful, to say the least. With Chinese manufacturers expanding internationally the premium market becomes more and more crowded. Apple sales have not been as good as they should have been but to finally make a comeback they would have to bring something new to the table unparalled to what the Android devices have to offer.
