It has been many years since we have been looking forward to iPhone embracing the USB-C port. User interest in an USB-C iPhone become more serious when Apple added the said port to iPad Pro released back in 2018.
Now analyst Ming Chi-Kuo says Apple might be planning on finally bringing the USB-C port to iPhone and make a complete switch from Lightning Port to USB-C with the release of iPhone 15. He says this based on his “latest survey”.
iPhone 15, which is expected to get released in the second half of 2023 will be able to provide faster data transfer speeds and charging speeds due to the hardware changes.
Kuo says final spec of next year’s iPhone still depends on iOS support although that might not be too difficult, as hardware enthusiasts have already added USB-C port to iPhone and iPadOS already supports USB-C.
When Apple shifts iPhone to USB-C its existing suppliers of components that includes IC Controller and Connector will be the ones providing it with parts.
With Kuo claiming USB-C’s inclusion in with iPhone 15, hopes of getting USB-C with this year’s iPhone 14 appear to be dwindling. Still there is plenty to get excited about when it comes to iPhone 14.
