There’s a new rumor making the rounds today and its about the iPhone 6, which Apple is believed to be unveiling next month. A photo has emerged from somewhere in Asia which hints that perhaps Apple will redesign the iPhone 6 charging adapter for customers in the U.S. Adapters are configured based on a country or region’s specifications and slight variations have always been found. This time around a total redesign is rumored for the adapter that will be shipped on Apple’s home turf.

The picture of this purported iPhone 6 charger was posted on Sina Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, and a source of many leaks that come out of Asia. Folks in Australia will recognize the shape. The adapter looks similar to the existing charger adapter shipped to customers in Australia.

This particular adapter is a little wider than the current U.S. model and it includes notches at either end to offer a better grip when plugging and unplugging it in the socket.

No explanation accompanies the image so Apple’s reasons for making this supposed change are unknown. There has been chatter that Apple wants to take the charger capacity beyond five watts which would make sense since the new iPhones are believed to feature larger batteries.

Still it is too soon to be absolutely sure. Rumor has it that the new iPhones will be unveiled on September 9th, all we can do now is wait and see if Apple talks about improving its charger as well.
