Apple’s USB-C to Lightning cable discounted to $19
Apple is now selling its 1-meter USB-C to Lightning cable at $19, down from $25. The 2-meter cable remains at its original price of $35.
The move, first noted by 9to5Mac, was a quiet one, but it’s not exactly rare to see cable prices drop over an extended period of time. However, with USB-C charging for iPhones only a recent feature addition and further rumors that USB-C charging would be standardized with the power adapter boxed with this fall’s iPhones, it does continue a conversation about what role Apple wants USB-C to have in I/O on its products.
iPhone purchases currently come with a small 5W charging block, but a new adapter could bring top rates of 18W.
