iPhone 8 and iPhone X fast charging requires users to buy extra cable

Apple’s iPhone 8 and iPhone X support fast charging and wireless charging – additions which were welcomed by fans.

Fast charging will reportedly let new iPhone owners charge their device from 0% to 50% battery in 30 minutes via a charging cable.

9to5Mac has reported that this will not be possible with the standard USB-A-to-Lightning cable that comes with the devices, however.

The report stated that users will require a USB-C-to-Lightning cable to take advantage of fast charging, which is sold separately ($9 on Amazon).

Users will also require an Apple USB-C wall charger in conjunction with the cable, which start at $49, stated the report.
