2018 iPhone's Power Brick

This year's iPhones are expected to at least have USB-C power bricks. Meaning that piece you put into a wall outlet will take a USB-C to Lightning cable. However, Mac Otakara believes that Apple will be unable to keep up with demand if a sacrifice is not made. By making more iPhones, this power brick will not be sold separately until supply evens out. Because the power brick would be included with each iPhone, not enough can be made to sell separately at launch. An interesting decision, but potentially the right one. There are many workarounds for this, so it's not a huge deal, but it's way too reminiscent of AirPower and AirPods being delayed. It's becoming a trend with Apple lately and I think people are really getting tired of the logistical compromises.
