Upcoming iPhones to have USB type-C port: Details here

New Delhi: According to reports, Apple plans to include a USB Type-C port on future iPhone models. On the devices, the Cupertino-based company plans to replace the outdated Lightning charging connector with USB Type-C. However, it is possible that the shift will not take place until 2023. A USB Type-C port is currently available on Apple’s MacBook and iPad devices. It is also rumored that Apple is working on an adapter that will allow future iPhones to work with peripherals that use the Lightning connector.

Apple plans to change the iPhone’s charging port, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, and the company is testing new iPhones and adapters with a USB Type-C connection. Apple is expected to maintain Lightning contact for this year’s new models, according to the report, and the transition “would not take place until 2023 at the earliest.”

Apple currently offers USB Type-C connectivity on the iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad Mini, while accessories such as AirPods and the Apple TV remote use the Lightning connector. Apple’s decision to review the change is believed to be influenced by the EU’s efforts to introduce a common charger for smartphones. A standard cable for all devices, according to the European Commission, will also reduce electronic waste.

The news comes just days after Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the Lightning port would be phased out in favor of USB-C in the second half of 2023. A USB Type-C port is expected to be included in the rumored iPhone 15 versions.

The Lightning port was originally introduced by Apple with the iPhone 5 in 2012. In 2016, Apple added the USB Type-C port to the MacBook Pro.

According to reports, Apple is working on the iPhone 14 series. iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to be included in the range.
