Hi I just recently got an iPhone XR and was looking to get fast charging but thought the prices from the apple store is a bit more than I’m willing to spend so it was too see if there was any suggestions to any good fast charging cable and plug adapters (UK) that are more reasonably priced and also an charge and listen to music adapter

Do you have an iPad or better yet a mac power brick? Those should both work on your iPhone, and should connect to your existing cord, UNLESS its a newer Mac brick which as a USB C port instead of USB A.

No I don’t but my brother and his gf said I should get the 15w power brick to plug into as it charges faster

Would this be a good power brick to buy and will it have a noticeable difference with the normal cable that comes with the iphone

I use my iPad’s 12W charging block to charge my iPhone all the time. It does charge my iPhone faster than the 5W block that came with the iPhone.

Yes it's probably 12. iPad bricks are 12, they USED to be 10, but they are 12 now. I think the Mac one is 30.

Would you say it is worth spending the £20 on and will it still charge faster with the wire that comes with the iPhone

Worth it to me, and yes your standard Apple cable should work.
