Will the Lightning port disappear? In any case, it is that a report seems to indicate for the next generation of smartphones made in Apple, in particular for the iPhone 14 Pro.
USB-C is becoming the standard for mobile phones, in particular because it represents many advantages such as cable reversibility, generally faster recharging times, etc. If the iPhone 13 has not yet dared to draw a line on the famous port Lightning it is rumored that this could be the case for the iPhone 14.
The farewell of an “old friend”?
Indeed according to a report of iDropNews who cites several “reliable” sources, Apple would consider integrating USB-C for its iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. On the other hand, there is no indication for the time being of this strategic change for the more classic model.
The objective for Apple would be in particular to offer better transfer rates since in this regard, the Lightning is seriously starting to show age. And it is not the arrival of very high resolution videos that this will get better, quite the contrary.
The law is the law, even for Apple and its iPhones
The other brake and not the least to the sustainability of Lightning is quite simply the law, since the European Commission wants to introduce a universal USB-C charger. And this is also what is currently being discussed in the United States. This obligation in Europe could occur as early as 2024. The countdown has therefore clearly started for Apple.
This could also make it possible to make the Apple ecosystem less rigid and to put a definitive stop to the famous question “Anyone have an iPhone charger?“when going on vacation or at the office. Which is great news!
