New generation of iPhone has great feature which no one is talking about
One of the biggest features that were missing from the Apple iPhone was the fast charging and now Apple has introduced fast charging with iPhone 8 & iPhone X. Apple claims its new phones can recharge up to 50 percent of their battery life in a 30-minute charge. But there's a catch: you have to use USB-C, as spotted by 9to5Mac.

Up until now, the iPhone was not exactly ‘fast charging’ capable. The best the smartphone could do was up to 12 watts of power draw, while the competition was soaring north of 18 watts, thanks to technologies like Quick Charge 3.0 or the USB Power Delivery standard. Now you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple too has joined the fast charging party, with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X supporting high amounts of power draw for charging up using Apple’s official USB-C Power Adapter. This bit of information comes straight from Apple’s very own website.

While this may be good news, but there’s a small downside to this as well. You have to buy a USB-C to Lightning cable and an USB-C Power Adapter straight from Apple itself. Things get a little worse when you realize that you can’t use any third-party USB-C or USB-PD charger with the smartphone to juice up quickly. Furthermore, Apple is the only company that makes a USB-C to Lightning cable. So yes, you’ll be investing quite a bit of money on this end if you’re looking to step up your charging game.

Still, I will like to make the investment, fast charging is a great addition to a phone. It's just a shame that Apple isn't including the hardware you'd need to make it work in the box.
