    At what wattage does the Non-Touchbar late 2016 Macbook Pro charge an iPhone X? I am talking about plugging in a lightning end to an iPhone X and the USB C end to the Macbook Pro. Does it fast charge? Is it faster than the power adapter that comes with the iPhone X?

    The Thunderbolt 3 ports on the MacBook Pro can provide up to 15W but in reality they won't provide more than about 10.5-12W, which is still a lot faster than the iPhone charger (5W) but slower than fast charging (18W).

    [EDIT: To clarify, I mean in reality they won't provide more than about 10.5-12W to an iPhone... to other devices built to the USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 specification, they can draw up to the full 15W.]
