Apple has quietly reduced the price of its USB-C to Lightning cable which permits quicker charging respectively for iPhones and iPads. However, the company is now offering its 1m USB-C to Lighting Cable for $19 only while the previous price was $25 means $6 has been reduced from the original price.
Interestingly, Apple’s USB-A to Lightning Cable, which is presently included with iPhones and iPads is likewise offering for $19.00 as well. Hence, dropping the cost of the USB-C to Lightning link to $19.00 adjusts it to the cost of the links that right now ship inside the boxes of iPhones and iPads.
It is not the first time that Apple has reduced the price of its 1m cable but once before, during the so-called #donglegate, Apple also cut the prices of all USB accessories including the USB-C to Lightning Cable.
The reason is not clear yet that why Apple suddenly reduced the price of its USB-C to Lightning cable. But, a rumor says that Apple is finally planning to give up on the use of USB-A in its iPhone and iPad charging adapters this year.
However, bits of gossip are suggesting that Apple will present another 18W USB-C Power Adapter with another outline. Not exclusively would such a connector be more in accordance with the iPhone’s charging capacities, it would likely to be lighter than the current 29W connector, enabling it to fit in areas where a bigger connector may not.
