With KGI Securities expecting new cables going fromLightning to USB-C coming soon, it’s only about time that Apple conformed toUSB Power Delivery specifications. Thing is, we know of only one device that will support it:the iPhone 8.
A research note from Barclays’s Blayne Curtis obtained by MacRumors speculates that a 10W adapter made by Cypress Semiconductor — the company that also supplied the power management chip for the10.5-inch iPad Pro — will come with the great andlate iPhone 8, as well as that same management chip. The wattage is double what Apple offers in its current iPhone power adapters and would quicker fill the iPhone 8’s rumored 2,700mAh two-cell battery.
