Considering the history of Ming-Chi Kuo with Apple leaks, we are quite confident the upcoming iPhone 15 series may indeed have a USB Type-C port instead of lightning for charging. This shift is a massive deal for customers as it helps to have a single cable to charge most devices.
iPhone 15 to shift to USB Type-C port
Noted Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple might finally shift to a USB Type-C port with the next year’s iPhone 15 series. However, it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time that Apple is rumoured to shift to a USB Type-C port for iPhones as there have been frequent reports about it since 2017. Kuo himself has predicted the shift quite a few times.
We’re hoping to see the shift to a USB Type-C port on the next year’s iPhone as it eliminates the need for multiple cables for charging. If this report pans out, iPhone 14 will be the last Lightning-equipped iPhone. For those unaware, Apple has moved to USB-C for most of its premium devices like the iPads. This change will benefit with faster charging and broader connectivity with Apple’s very own USB-C powered devices.
We should know whether this report turns out to be true when the iPhones launch next year. Stick around.
