iPhone 14 Pro killer upgrade recently shot down by a new report


This year’s USB-C port rumour appears to have been extinguished.

It’s possible that the days of the iPhone charging via Lightning are coming to an end. The present Lightning port will be replaced by USB-C connections in future iPhone models, according to a report from Bloomberg.

For this fall’s iPhone 14, which is almost certainly going to be equipped with a Lightning port, the modification would be too late. There had been reports that the iPhone 14 Pro will use USB-C instead of Lightning, but those have since been debunked.


According to a tweet from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple plans to offer USB-C capability to iPhones in 2023. This fresh report follows that post. A fresh piece of information has emerged, however: according to Bloomberg, Apple is also developing an adapter that will allow future iPhones to function with peripherals made for the Lightning port.

Apple’s chargers for various devices will be streamlined as a result of the switch to USB-C. For the past five years, Apple’s MacBooks and iPads have been powered by USB-C.

Apple, however, has another reason for abandoning Lightning. The EU has been pressing companies to make USB-C a norm for portable devices, which could be the driving force behind Apple’s future migration to USB-C.


There may be uncertainty over whether type C chargers will be compatible with non-Apple devices as a result of USB-C.

As of the iPhone 5’s release in 2012, Lightning is Apple’s exclusive connector. AirPods, the MagSafe Duo charger, and the remote control for Apple TV are among the few remaining Apple items that use the Lightning connection in addition to the iPhone. These devices’ fates remain a mystery.

We don’t yet know if the expected USB-C charger will be sold separately or bundled with the iPhone 15 range. Even though Apple announced this change for EU users, it is probable that the Lightning port will remain on devices outside of Europe, according to the article However, this would just add to the confusion, as well as the problems of making the product..


Apple’s 2023 iPhones are expected to be the first to include USB-C ports. More than a decade has passed since the mobile phone industry began moving towards standardising charging ports, and Apple remains the lone holdout. In recent months, it has become more and more apparent that Apple will be making the conversion from Lightning to USB-C for its iPhones in the near future.
