    It's also worth noting that fast charging is coming later enabled by a software update. Hopefully by the time the iPhone X ships.

    An extra $75 to get fast charging. Steve would've approved.

    Let's just take a breath for a moment. All models since 6s (except the SE) unofficially supported fast charging. All you had to do is lug it into an ipad charger. That allowed the 6s and above models to draw more power while regulating temps and other aspects at the source. So yeh, zero-to-50% was way faster that way. I'd wait and see if apple messed with that capability. If they force fast charging now only through these new macbook USB-C charger - that would be evil. But I don't think they'll do that. So just maybe, things won't be worse than before and we'll have cheap fast charging without having to spend $75.

    Just buy an iPad - you will get a more powerful charger with it.

    I already have a couple 29w chargers for my MacBook and to fast charge my iPad. But are there 3rd-party USB-C power bricks that can also fast charge an iPhone?

    Many people who buy this likely have or will have the USB-C laptops, I would imagine.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

    I can't even...

    When I saw that these phones were fast-charging capable on the Apple website, I assumed that meant with the included charger, as would 99% of people. You're telling me that the included charger doesn't have this capability? AND, you have to purchase a USB-A to USB-C adapter in order to use a charger that WOULD support fast charging?

    Pah. My current phone (Nexus 6P) has fast charging. It came in the box! I was really happy to see the feature coming to iPhones. Having read this article (great investigative work, Macrumors, you guys are consistently terrific), I don't even know what to say. Laughable.

    I would imagine any wall adaptor that is capable of pulling a higher wattage from the wall would be able to fast charge the device, including many that could be powered by a tradition USB/Lightning adaptor. I don't think you are required to use an Apple one.

    Nope.

    Samsung, LG, googles Pixel all don't ship with a wireless charger included. 0 for Android fanboys on his particular discussion

    Will it matter what wall adapter you use? Would the 29W charge as fast as the 87W wall adapter? I know one puts out more power but could it be limited to the 29W wall adapter?

    “2hrs over the iPhone 7”, does it mean the iPhone X have less battery life than the 7 plus?.
    I was planning to upgrade from 7+ But I don’t like at all to spend more than 1K and do a downgrade in one of the better aspect of my current phone.. the wonderful battery life

    I’d say the 10 will have the same battery life as the Plus model.

    It's funny that you Android users spend so much time on Apple centric forums. Anyway, Turbo Charge is not the same thing as this.

    You should get rightfully bashed for this statement because it happens more than you know for power users and none power users alike. And fast charging is so convenient. Stop falling into Apple's Bottle Hole please....expect more and you will get more.

    Samsung's wireless charger lately has been free if you preordered the note 8........nice to eventually receive a free wireless charger.
