Apple iPhone XR price slashed in India, now starts from Rs 70,500

This means that if you want to charge your iPhone faster, you'll still need to purchase either the 12W or 18W iPad charger separately. However, as the iPhone can support fast charging using the Lightning port over the USB Type-C protocol, it's a missed opportunity for Apple to boast about "fast charging out the box" when the new models launch.

The next generation of iPhones may come equipped with all sorts of new cutting-edge features, but it will still be lagging behind the rest of the mobile world in one major aspect, according to a new report. Apple will introduce a new green option for the successor model of the iPhone XR and it will cancel one of the current colour options. iPhone XR is now available in black, white, yellow, coral, red, and blue. By sticking with the same Lightning connector and included accessories, Apple will save money since it won't be forced to develop other accessories.

This latest news on Apple passing on USB-C for the iPhone is in contrast with an from last summer when supply-side sources were claiming the USB-C ports were on the way for Apple's 2019 iPhone offering. But recently, rumors of 2019 iPhones complete with USB-C ports have begun swirling around.

Despite actively testing iPhone prototypes with USB-C ports, it's suggested that Apple has chosen to stick with its proprietary port for yet another year, a decision which is seemingly tied directly with production costs and profit. Replacing Lightning with USB-C would also require a USB-C EarPods in the iPhone box.
