Fast-charging the iPhone XS, Max and XR is still out of the box and $68 extra
Still, Apple does give you other options, as it lists on its official support pages that the fast-charging functionality of the new iPhones is certainly accessible by plugging in certain third-party USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) adapters, and combining them with an "Apple USB-C to Lightning" cable (sold separately for $19).
Long story short, as you can read from the new iPhones' website small print, you can't fast-charge your iPhone XS, Max or XR on the cheap with what Apple included in the box, but would rather have to buy its separate $50 adapter, or use a compatible third-party one for fast-charging on the cheap. Bummer.
