Apple's new iPads can charge your iPhone
by Peter Kostadinov / Oct 30, 2018, 1:25 PM
Your iPhone's battery is running low? Well, that shouldn't be a problem with the new iPad Pro 11" and 12.9" slates, which can charge your iPhone in a jiffy.
Of course, this would only work if you have one of them USB Type-C to Lightning cables lying around. Oh, you missed the news? The new iPads are equipped with USB Type-C ports, hinting that next year's iPhones might also make this important switch.
This is the first time Apple has allowed its tablets to reverse-power other devices, and the reason for that is simple - this feature was "unlocked" by the inclusion of the USB Type-C connectivity standard, which is much more capable that Lightning cables in both data and power throughput.
- Display 11.0" 1668 x 2388 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 7 MP front
- Processor Apple A12X Bionic, Octa-core, 2490 MHz
- Storage 1000 GB
- Battery 7812 mAh

Huawei did it first. I must point that the company who was once known as the most innovative company in the world is playint catch-up with chinese phonemakers. And it wouldnt be problem if they didnt charge sun,sky and whole universe for their products. I own iPhone SE and Pocophone, and though its really hard to compare them based on their niche there is one thing that i cannot unsee - Pocophone is faster than SE was when i got it, it is faster now after all those iOs updates. There is one disappointed soon to be former Apple user.

Hol up: you’re upset that your 2018 phone with the highest end processor Android has on offer is faster than Apple’s flagship processor from THREE YEARS AGO? Are you legitimately stupid or... ???

Who give a carp how fast the CPU is, when it's not doing anything to actually show its power. Yeah Mario Run is a good example of how power iPad is /s Let's see some real multitasking capabolities. Let's include the writing tool. Let's include the adapters. Let's include the cable needed to reverse charge which only cost $2 and sells from others for less than $10.

Hey kiko007, how is your day, everything fine? Cool. Now, i am not upset, i am just pointing it and i said it is hard to compare them, maybe impossible, BUT... Apple was praised for innovation and stable software support for devices to stay fast. Innovation is nowhere to be seen for years, and by the way, sluggish performance on a three year old phone that cost more than the three month old phone is something i dont like. SE still costs 350 bucks in my country and Poco is 300. But understand it the way you want, i am just saying.

Why don't you compare your super Pocophone to a more recent iPhone? like the XR or XS and see the difference. I mean Apple products are expensive as hell, but they don't force you to buy them, you can save a couple bucks and buy a 64GB 11" iPad Pro and go on with it. If you want to save more money buy their iDevices used or refurbished, there are options fellow commenter.

Who fkn cares who did it first. Huawei has pennies compared to Apple. Now answer this: who’s the first trillion dollar company between Apple and Huawei. If you can talk about who did it first, I can talk about who had the most money.

Typical sad American praising a company for having money which he will never see a penny of. I will give you a little tip, nobodys cares except idiots like you, the ones they are milking it from. It's that sad it's laughable.
