If the change does go ahead, it would render all current Apple charges as redundant for iPhone 11 and any subsequent models.
In the screenshot, the image of the Lightning cable shown in iOS 12 has clearly been replaced with a USB-C cable.

It has now been replaced with the image of a laptop and what appears to be a USB-C cable.
A USB-C charger is commonly used on android devices and was created for thinner, sleeker devices like tablets and ulta-book, while claiming to be robust enough for smartphones. It was built on existing USB 3.1 and USB 2.0 technologies.
