According to The Apple Insiders , Apple will replace the Lightning connector in the iPhone with a USB-C port, bringing it in line with the MacBook and the MacBook Pro.
That’s not a rumor we’ve heard previously, but The Wall Street Journal is a reputable source that often accurately predicts Apple’s plans. Unfortunately, a second well-known source, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, says The Wall Street Journal’s report is inaccurate and that all three upcoming iPhone 8 models will continue to include Lightning ports.
Given that The Wall Street Journal provided so little information on the replacement of the Lightning port with USB-C (it’s just one line in a wider story on a curved OLED display), and the fact that its removal sounds a bit far-fetched, Kuo’s information is more believable at this point in time.
While a Lightning port is expected, Kuo believes Apple could implement USB Type-C Power Delivery technology (while still using the Lightning port) to offer a fast charging feature that would allow the iPhone to charge more quickly. Fast charging is already a feature available in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro using a Lightning to USB-C cable.
Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis agrees with Kuo and believes Apple will stick to Lightning. He thinks Apple may introduce a Lightning to USB-C adapter in European countries, though, to adhere to a the European Commission’s “one mobile phone charger for all” campaign.
