    Apple's new iPad Pro 2018 with USB-C will charge faster with the new brick in the box

    15 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Apple is slowly beginning to improve the fast charging situation of its gadgets. No, we aren't talking about the iPhones - these still come with a 5W charger in their boxes, and fast-charging will run you $68 extra if you want to get Apple's official 30W charger plus its proprietary USB-PD cable.
