Fast charging gives you a quick and convenient way to recharge your phone, such as OnePlus Dash charge, Huawei FCP/SCP, Samsung AFC, while iPhone always uses 5W charging power, charge speed has been highly criticized. There is no doubt that iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X bring a huge innovation in charging, they support fast charge and wireless charge.

However, iPhone has made no announcement of the fast charging protocol on the conference or official website, they just mentioned that they fast charge up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. Before the release of iPhone 8, the industry speculated that iPhone will use 5V/3A charge specification because iPad series always use 5V/2.4A charger, and 5V/3A also comply with USB PD specification.

 
 

After a real charge test on the iPhone 8 plus, new iPhone use high volt fast charge, with charge power up to 15W from USB PD current tester indication, 3 times more than the last generation iPhone, it’s great news for all iPhone fans.

 
 

Unfortunately, the new iPhone official charging accessories are only regular 5W power adapter and USB to lightning cable. If you want to fast-charge your new iPhone, you need to buy 29W USB-C Power Adapter ($49), and its 1-meter USB-C to Lightning Cable ($25) — cost $74 combined, that's a lot of money for customers.

The good news is that Apple support pages noted that third-party USB-C power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery also works well for new iPhone, but for the USB-C to lightning cable, you have to buy it from Apple, because it hasn’t allowed third-party manufacturers to make their own USB-C to Lightning cables yet. According to further industry news release, due to lack of capacity of fast charge lightning connector, the demands of shipment can’t be met. As for the third-party certification application, the PPID application of the USB-C to Lightning fast charge cable will be opened at the end of the first quarter of 2018.
