Apple Reportedly Testing iPhone With USB-C Connection


 Following on from an analyst report a few days ago, now Bloomberg reports Apple is testing an iPhone model that replaces the Lightning’s connection to USB-C.

With this move, it is expected to help Apple resolve the demands and legislation set by the European Union. This year's model is expected to retain the Ligthning connection, and the earliest iPhone to use it is in 2023.

This will also allow Apple to align its MacBook offerings, and iPads that are ready to use a USB-C connection.

At the same time, Apple is also developing custom adapters to ensure that various Lighting -based accessories today will be able to remain in use.

For the record, previously the original iPhone came with a 30-pin connection for charging, before it changed to the iPhone 5 where Apple uses the Lightning connection to this day.
