Earlier this week, known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that Apple may ditch the lightning port for USB-C port in 2023 iPhone models. Now, as per a latest report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the company has started testing iPhones that are equipped with USB-C port. Apart from this, the report also suggests that the tech giant has also started to test 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 European Union is working on a new legislation that may force Apple to use the USB-C port on all its products including iPhones, iPads and AirPods.
If Apple adapts the USB-C port it will help users to get faster charging speeds and quicker data transfers. Rumours around Apple adopting a USB-C port for iPhones have been in circulation for the past few years now. The tech giant has already made the switch in various iPad models.
If recent tweets from Kuo are true, then 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 the Apple ecosystem become the market’s focus in the next couple of years.
Although Apple is currently gearing up to launch the iPhone 14 series later this year, we have seen numerous reports about its successor. According to the leaks, Apple iPhone 15 may feature under-display Face ID feature that will help the company to get rid of the notch, Apart from this, the 2023 iPhone models are also rumoured to get periscope lens, under-display Touch ID and several other new features.
