    I've been reading several articles recently that mentions that iPhones could come with fast charging in the box. Great news!!!!

    It should have been included this last year. Apple needs to ditch lightning altogether though and just go USB-C.

    Way easier said than done for most users. I own approximately 1 billion lightning cables and exactly zero things that a USB-C cable can be plugged into. If I couldn’t use CarPlay to and from my office every day it would be a travesty.

    Nay nay, I'm saying on the phone itself. The lightning port should be USB-C. I would hope Apple would include a USB-C to USB-A cable in the box. If not, a generic USB-C to USB-A cable is pretty cheap. So you would still be able to use CarPlay.

    Well that’s not so bad then and, to be honest, the only time I actually plug my phone into anything is in my car. Everywhere else I have Qi chargers.

    I suppose it good be good news for some if the rumor is true, but heck, I charge my iPhone overnight while I'm asleep so it's really not an issue for me. Besides, I get great battery life with my devices....

    The problem with USB-C is standards though. Only certain USB-C headphones work with certain phones, and using the wrong USB-C cable for charging can damage some devices.

    I don’t care much about USB-C. I even don’t have USB3 ports on my computer, let alone USB-C.
    Having said that, I think Apple should stay with they’re own proprietary Lightning ports till kingdom come. It’s so much easier and less fragile then every other standard I know of, even USB-C.

    Plus I have a gajillion Lightning cables at home and don’t want to get other cables anytime soon.

    It’s about time
    I know! I'm sure they had to find a design to allow enough power and still be small.
