Apple releases USB-C charging cable for the Apple Watch

Today is the pre-order for the iPhone xr and Apple has quietly added a new USB-C charger for the Apple Watch. The new magnetic charger is identical to the existing Apple Watch charger, except you can plug it into a USB-C port rather than USB-A and is fuelling rumours that Apple is looking to switch from lightening to USB-C. Apple’s laptops have all adopted USB-C except for the MacBook Air, and whilst the lineup appears messy at the moment Apple may be in the process of streamlining their products over to one universal charging type. The new Watch charger costs $29 and comes with a 0.3 meter cable.
