Earlier today, we learned about several of the improvements that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro might bring, and now we can add another possibility to the list.
Reports say that Apple will include a USB-C charger in the box with the iPhone 11. A tweet from ChargerLAB (via 9to5Mac) claims that the charger included with the iPhone 11 will have a USB-C port, which means it'd also come with a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box.

ChargerLAB leaked Apple's USB-C charger last year, but it incorrectly predicted that that charger would be packed in with the iPhone XS and XR. Instead, it came with the iPad Pro. However, a separate report from Macotakara from back in March also predicted that the iPhone 11 would include a USB-C charger, so today's rumor does have some support.
It'd be a pretty big deal if Apple included a USB-C charger with its next iPhone. It would mean that Apple is finally ditching the 5W charger, and it would give every iPhone 11 buyer much faster charging out of the box. And while it wouldn't quite be the same as Apple full-on moving to USB-C charging with the iPhone, it'd be a nice move that'd also make it easier for iPhone 11 buyers to plug their new phone into Apple's recent MacBook models.
