Apple may shift its upcoming iPhones from lightning ports to USB-C charging technology in 2023. All the upcoming iPhones of that year are said to feature this fast charging and data transferring technology. Although this year’s iPhone will retain the lightning port.
According to the popular analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, the testing has already begun for Apple’s future iPhone to feature this charging option. Although it’s not sure whether the cables will be sold separately or come packed with the iPhone kits. Going by Apple’s previous selling intentions, its customers may have to shell out extra bucks if they are to buy the adapter.
Most Apple products do come with a USB-C port. These include modern iPads and MacBooks. But the current generations of iPhone and Airpods are stuck with age-old lightning port.
Apple is also said to be working on a compatible Lightning/USB-C adapter for those who already own Lightning accessories. This shift will be highly beneficial for the ones who are users of current iPhone models and may go for an upgrade to a newer one.
