For example, your 2018 iPad Pro came with an 18-watt USB-C power adapter that chargers it at the normal rate, but the one that came with your Mac notebook will charge it faster. With a Lighting to USB-C cable, your iPad Pro adapter can even fast-charge your iPhone and previous iPad Pros. Apple also sells this charger separately for $29 as an affordable option for iPhone owners who would like to take advantage of fast-charge capability.
