I'm from the Future. Guess What! 2018 iPhones which cost over $1000 still come bundled with a paltry 5W charger.

Since USB-C by its name is universal, and non-proprietary, they won't be able to make $$$ from that since they don't have patent for that, being universal and sort of open source. Sheesh.

But they're still using Lightning as connector for the iPhone end of the device. Of course, if they used USB-C on both sides they can't milk $$$ in royalties from using the Lightning connector.

The charging block will have a USB-C port. The cable will be USB-C to Lightning. The port on the phones will still be a Lightning port.

Phonenerf, 16 May 2018they won't make profits on headphones. I am 100% that they won't include airpodsClassic Apple!
What about people with Mac mini?
What about people with Mac Pro?
What about people with MacBook Air?
What about people with Apple Watch? Now they need usb-c and type A port! omg.. Where's the AirPower when you need it??!
You brought this upon yourself Apple! If you are bold enough to upgrade your products across the line.. you will not be bugged by dongle squid, legacy ports.. Especially App developers are being screwed the most by YOU!
