Analyst tells clients to expect the 2018 Apple iPhone models to offer a faster charging system
According to a research note penned to his clients, Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang expects Apple to offer faster charging for its 2018 iPhone models. The analyst sees Apple turning to 9V 2A and 5V 3A charging systems from the current 5V 2A. According to Zhang, Apple will source fast-charging chipsets from a sole supplier, Power Integrations. The latter will replace ON Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductors as "the main provider for the charging solution for all new iPhone and iPads." In addition, the model rumored to sport a 6.1-inch LCD display, currently dubbed the iPhone 9, will use Texas Instruments instead of Broadcom components to provide wireless charging technology. Zhang says that the change is being made so that Apple can save money on the parts.

The analyst told clients that Apple is upgrading its charging in order to "support more applications, provide a quicker recharge, and better compete with Android OEMs." Apple did start offering fast charging capabilities with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and the changes will provide charging speeds faster than currently available for iPhone users.

The analyst sees Apple reporting year-over-year growth in iPhone sales during the second half of the year thanks to the new 2018 models. The company did sell 3.1% more handsets during its fiscal second quarter on a year-over-year basis. Foxconn will reportedly start assembling the new phones a month earlier than usual, and the plans call for it to manufacture more units of the lower-priced iPhone 9 than the other two models (carrying 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED panels) combined.

That's good for apple fans, and even better if it comes in the box.

Hate to break it to you but they've had it for years buddy. It was first released in iPhone XV and has been copied by everyone else ever since.

I love my iPhone X. It’s the best phone I’ve ever used. Let’s talk about Butter. Let’s talk about updates. Let’s talk about this camera and how good it looks and how i can record 4K without it stopping me because the processor is boiling it’s clamps off like all the Androids do. I’m glad I’m able to have the privilege to own greatness and experience what perfection looks like. The S9 is almost there tho.

And I packed up my iPhone after just a week of use and got an Android device - why use phone, that does not help me in daily tasks and excels on stuff that is really unimportant!

Any smartphone will help you with daily tasks. The ability is either baked in, or there’ll be an app for it. Stop lying dude.

Well if you read it from box, its nice marketing material. But I have made my Android home screen filled with operative information that I need, to be more successful. When I open my phone, I get the required info right then and there without any other app. Apple has been improving iOS a lot, but they are still quite far. Actually best in that area has always been Windows and its Metro, which has just tons of info on its home screen. It was just everything else, after you move beyond home screen, where windows kinda sucked. So the problem is not, that i can get info from OS, its just Android and Windows(may you rest in peace), are still way ahead in that area, and as a business user, I just get more operative aid from Android than from iOS.

They needed research to come to a conclusion that "customers want their phones to charge faster."? On other news, people need air to survive!
