Rumour ; Apple may ditch lightening connector for USB Type C

Source : The Verge. 

Link > apples-next-iphone-to-ditch-lightning-for-usb-c-report-says.

 

Excerpt from the above Link. 

 

"More intriguingly, the Journal quotes anonymous sources claiming the new iPhone would ditch Apple's proprietary Lightning connection for USB-C. USB cables for syncing and charging are standard across the mobile industry, but Apple has always stuck with its own charging connection. Shifting to USB-C would be a huge move for Apple."

 

My Thoughts. 

 

Technology moves with the times. 

 

Who knows maybe Apple will have yet another adapter cable in the box Smiley Wink

About time too! I seem to have a drawer full of Lightning connectors that have come with bits of equipment - from time to time I pass on a handful to a friend who does carboots, but it would be nice if the tide stopped!

I agree. 

 

Unfortunately those that use assessories that attach to an iPhone/ ipad may think differently. Docks etc. 

 

USB-C is the way forward.
