The leaked pictures claim to show a prototype of an Apple 18W charging brick that has a USB-C connection, the same connection that many newer Android devices already use.
USB-C cables also allow devices to charge much faster than other options, and unlike previous USB connectors, they can be inserted both ways round.
Another advantage of the USB-C charger is that it would allow MacBook Pro owners to connect their iPhone to their new MacBook without needing to buy an extra cable.
Nevertheless, there are still some unanswered questions, including whether the new iPhones would still also be compatible with the current Lightning connectors – if they are, then iPhone owners can keep using their old cables, but if not, that that means another cable migration is on the horizon.
Apple has yet to comment on the pictures, so it remains to be seen exactly what kind of charger Apple users will start using next. — dpa
