Keynotes

  • According to a Bloomberg writer, Apple is testing iPhones with USB-C connectors instead of Lightning.
  • Even after the introduction of USB-C in 2023, Apple intends to keep the Lightning connection on this year’s iPhones.
  • A report by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo earlier this week said that the Lightning connector would be phased out in favour of a USB-C connection on iPhone 15 devices due out in 2023.
  • For the first time, the European Union is considering passing legislation requiring all of Apple’s future goods to use USB-C technology.

A Bloomberg report claims that Apple is really testing iPhones with USB-C connections instead of Lightning. This year’s iPhones will still have a Lightning connector until at least 2023 when Apple plans to move to USB-C.

Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, first mentioned a possible switch to USB-C earlier this week, claiming that the Lightning connector will be replaced by a USB-C connection in the 2023 iPhone 15 models.

However, reports about Apple embracing USB-C connectors have been around since Apple began utilising USB-C for its iPad series, but so far, Apple has remained loyal to Lightning for its iPhones.

As a result of European regulations, Apple may be considering a switch. The European Union is thinking about a law for the first time that would force Apple to use USB-C technology in all of its products.

If the law is implemented, all devices sold in Europe would have to feature a universal USB-C connector, so Apple would either have to sell specific USB-C iPhone models in Europe or just make the switch to Lightning everywhere.

With USB-C connectors, it would be possible to charge and send data more quickly, and the iPhone would be compatible with Mac and iPad devices that already have USB-C connectors. Gurman predicts that if Apple makes the switch to USB-C, it will release an adaptor that will allow USB-C iPhones to be used with Lightning-compatible peripherals.
