Ming-Chi Kuo: new iPad Pro gets 18W charger with usb-c

According to the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPad Pro, which Apple will most likely announce on Wednesday, will receive a charger of 18W and ‘usb-c i / o’. He also mentions AirPods 2.

Apple site 9to5Mac deduces from the key words of Ming-Chi Kuo that Apple replaces the Lightning connection with the next iPad Pro with usb-c. That would be striking. Apple announced its own Lighting standard in 2012, and iPhones and iPads have since been fitted with that connector. It is expected that the upcoming iPhones, which will probably be announced together with the iPad Pro 2018 on September 12th, will also have the Lightning connection.
Ming-Chi Kuo is an analyst with an almost flawless reputation with his reports on coming Apple products. In the pamphlet with catchwords he talks about ‘usb-c i / o’ and a new 18W power supply. Information about this power supply with usb-c connection has been published earlier. The analyst may simply point out that Apple is supplying this USB charger with the iPad, possibly with a USB-to-Lightning cable. Apple is currently supplying 10W and 12W chargers with the iPads. According to rumors, the upcoming iPad Pro does not have a headphone connection .
The analyst speaks of the arrival of AirPods 2-ears and AirPower for wireless charging, without mentioning details. There are rumors about an update of AirPods with Siri integration. Apple is holding an event Wednesday where it announces new hardware. It is expected that at least three new iPhones and two iPad Pro models will go.
