Earlier this week, renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested it Apple can close the lightning port for the USB-C port 2023 iPhone models. Now, according to a recent report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the company has started testing iPhones that are equipped with a USB-C port. In addition to this, the report also suggests that the technology giant has also started testing new adapters.
According to the reports, Apple’s move may be due to the new legal requirements that Europe may implement. For those who do not know, the EU is working on new legislation that could force Apple to use the USB-C port on all its products, including iPhones, iPads and AirPods.
If Apple customizes the USB-C port, it will help users get faster charging speeds and faster data transfers. Rumors that Apple is adopting a USB-C port for iPhones have been circulating in recent years now. The technology giant has already made the switch to different iPad models.
If the latest tweets from Kuo are true, the iPhone 15 will mark the end of the Lightning connector as Apple’s primary charging cable after almost 13 years. Kuo also believes that the move will also help suppliers of Apple’s ecosystem become the market focus in the coming years.
Although Apple is currently preparing to launch the iPhone 14 series later this year, we have seen many reports of its successor. According to the leaks, Apple iPhone 15 may have under-display Face ID feature that will help the company get rid of the hack, in addition to this, the 2023 iPhone models are also rumored to get periscope lens, under-display Touch ID and several other new features.
