Apple has added a couple of new products to its store today and the iPhone XR is one of them. The other is a USB-C charger for the Apple Watch. The only way you could charge the company’s smartwatch previously was using the USB-A cable. This made it difficult for users to charge the wearable device particularly if they owned a late 2016 and onwards MacBook Pro.
Apple is finally addressing this limitation now for those owners. It’s now selling a USB-C charger for the Apple Watch. Customers who are interested in picking one up can now do so through Apple’s online store for $29.
Apple is rumored to embrace the USB-C standard even further. The new iPad Pro that it’s likely to announce later this month is one of the new tablets from Apple that are expected to opt for the USB Type-C port.
While the company hasn’t confirmed that as yet, it’s now selling the USB-C charger for the Apple Watch. We’ll only come to know for sure about the company’s commitment to the USB-C standard going forward once it unveils the new iPads. Apple has scheduled its event for October 30th and the new iPads are likely going to be the only major thing on the agenda.
