This year, after so many years of users waiting, Apple has finally equipped a fast-charging technology for iPhone devices. This is one thing probably every iPhone user has been waiting for a long time. Apple has long been criticized for offering a standard charger only for its premium iPhones. If users want to speed up their iPhones' charging speed, they will instead have to spend around Rs. 3,500 for a faster charger.
The new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max support 18W fast charging solution and also come with an 18W charger included in the box along with a USB Type-C to Lightning cable because Apple still retains the Lightning port on the new iPhones. However, that is only the case for these two phones, as its sibling iPhone 11 is still packed with a 5W charger, even though it also has support for 18W fast charging technology. In comparison, the latest Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Galaxy Note10+ both come with a 25W fast charger included. Not to mention, the two Note10 phones support a higher fast charging solution than the iPhone 11.
In addition to the fast charger, Apple also pledges that the new iPhone 11 Pro will have significantly improved battery life compared to its predecessor. The iPhone 11 Pro will have up to 4 hours longer battery life while the 11 Pro Max can last up to 5 hours longer than last year's iPhone XS Max. This is probably a fairly worthwhile upgrade in terms of battery life.
It should also be noted that only two versions of the iPhone 11 Pro have been given away by Apple with an 18W fast charger. As for the standard version, users who want to experience will still have to buy a quick charger separately for $29 (around Rs. 2,100). Not to mention users also have to buy additional USB-C to Lightning cable separately for $19 (around Rs. 1,360), which not really cheap for a cable.
