Cheap move, Apple . Thankfully, the iPhone 11 Pro series ( that are much more expensive at ,000+) do get an 18-watt faster charger included this year, saving the company from complete iPhone 11: no fast charger in the box , only 64GB on-board storage, still lower-res screen than competition.

Apple announced many improvements to its iPhone line Tuesday with its latest iPhone 11 lineup of phones. One less-heralded one, however, was finally adding fast charging in the box. Well, at least for its more expensive premium Pro phones.

While Android phones have shipped with fast chargers for years, Apple has stubbornly shipped slow five-watt chargers with its phones despite the iPhones' premium pricing. That finally is changing with the iPhone 11, at least on the Pro and Pro Max where Apple has finally upped its game to include an 18-watt USB-C fast charger and USB-C to Lightning cable in the box of the new phones that start at $999.

The perk, however, seems to be limited to the Pro. The regular iPhone 11, which starts at $699, still is shipping with Apple's slow five-watt charger and traditional USB-A to Lightning cable.

iPhones as recent as 2017's iPhone X have supported faster charging through USB-C when paired with the proper charging box and cable, so the feature itself isn't new. But given that an Apple-branded USB-C to Lightning cable runs a separate $19 for a 1 meter (roughly 3 feet) cable and the 18-watt USB-C power adapter another $29 adding faster charging isn't cheap.
