Apple adopted USB PD fast charging protocol for its iPhones since 2017, however, the included charging kit does not support PD fast charging. So if you want to charge your iPhone quickly, you need to purchase an additional set which includes the 18W USB-C Power Adapter (29USD) plus a USB-C to Lightning Charge Cable (19USD) at a total cost of 48USD which is pretty steep.
