Apple To Kill Lightning Connector From Next iPhone For USB Type-C, Reports Suggest


Short Bytes: According to report by the Wall Street Journal, Apple might prefer the USB Type-C port for the next iPhone. However, the report is unclear and it may be pointing towards a change on the power adapter side of the iPhone Lightning cable currently featuring USB Type-A connector.

Do you want an iPhone rumor? It’s been a while, so, here is one. According to a report by the WSJ,  Apple might do away with the Lightning connector for the universal Type-C USB. Yeah, Lightning, it’s the same port that ate the 150-year-old dino audio jack on the iPhone 7.

The report says that the next iPhones will have an “USB-C port for the power cord and other peripheral devices instead of the company’s original Lightning connector.”

However, on the other hand, there can be a replacement of the USB Type-A with the newer USB Type-C on the other side of iPhone charging cable that connects to the power adapter. Just it is the case for the new MacBook adapters.

An USB-C iPhone might not be more than just a dream. Under its MFi program, Apple has already launched the Ultra Accessory Connector (UAC) that could give some satisfaction to the users having devices and accessories with both USB-C and Lightning connectors.
