Apple is rightly following its cost-cutting policy.
After registering some stellar performance with the launch of iPhone X, Apple will definitely be on the move to craft an unparalleled iPhone X2 (Just a wild guess). A better display, some added security features, enhanced performance, and improved battery pack are some of the highlights that may accompany the new iPhone. The expected line of new devices may be named as iPhone X2, iPhone X Plus, or iPhone X SE. Whatever it may be, everyone must be expecting top of the line features from the new offering.
According to a report by one of the most popular social media networks, Weibo, from next year onwards, all the iPhones will come with 18W fast chargers in the box. Currently, Apple offers a 29W charger that delivers the charge rate of 0-50% in approximately 30 minutes and full charge within 90 minutes. Though the stats are not the best in the smartphone industry, still, it is better than many of the competitors.

Interestingly, Apple has no 18W charger available in its armory as yet. But the new additions will certainly push the sales on iPhone’s new models. Every other company does offer fast chargers with their respective flagship devices and expecting the same from Apple is no big deal.
Currently, the company sells a 29W charger for $49 and a one-meter USB-C to Lighting cable for $19. That takes it near $70. Whereas, the reported price of an 18W charger is somewhere between $20 to $30, which is more than half of what one has to shell right now. With some major price cuts on the new iPhone model series, the break in charging adapters will be just an addition to the Apple’s asking price.

As per another recent rumor, after eliminating the headphone jack completely, Apple is finally done with the offering of 3.5mm dongle on its new devices. The further production of new iPhones won’t come packed with Lighting-to-3.5mm Headphone Jack adapter.
Following the removal of the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple started including a Lighting to 3.5mm adaptor in the box to compensate the loss. But the new move by Apple looks to eliminate the headphone jack completely. In order to cut down the cost of its upcoming iPhones, getting rid of the adaptor would be another option to push down the company's expenses.
