Not so long ago the Wall Street Journal published shocking information. According to their data, the new iPhone, which will be presented by Apple this year, will surprise us with the appearance of the USB-C connector, which will replace the Lightning connector. It's hard to believe, but you can not take into account the authority of the Wall Street Journal and their sources. However, there were those who are ready to doubt all this.
With new rumors, KGI Securitiers and Ming-Chi Kuo, who is famous for his accurate predictions, came out to the public. According to him, Lightning will not go anywhere, and instead of supporting USB-C in the new iPhone will support quick charging. Charge the smartphone will be fast, but with the help of Lightning. To do this, Apple will equip smartphones with new components from Texas Instruments and Cypress.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has no reason to refuse Lightning in favor of USB-C. The advantages that this connector can give are quite insignificant for the iPhone. In addition, the USB-C connector requires more space, and we know how Apple relates to saving space in the enclosures of its devices. Finally, there is the MFi program and accessories, from which companies are highly undesirable to refuse. This brings additional income.
