According to DigiTimes, Apple is redesigning its chargers and related interface for the iPhone and iPad. Sources at the analog IC vendors claim that Apple will start the transition to USB Type-C with the iPhone in 2019.
Currently, the 2018 iPhone lineup is rumored to come bundled with a new 18W USB-C power adapter.
