(Pocket-lint) — After a decade of providing all iPhones with a Lightning connector, Apple is said to be considering replacing that with a USB-C connector.

Bloomberg He claimed that the Cupertino-based company is now testing iPhones that replace the Lightning connector with USB-C. However, the change is not expected to appear in this year’s iPhone lineup. The transition to USB-C is not likely to happen until 2023 at the earliest,” according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gorman.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his ability to accurately predict Apple’s product roadmap, also suggested that Apple abandon the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C in the second half of 2023.


The iPhone 2023 won’t be Apple’s first device with a USB-C port. Apple already offers it on the iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad Mini because USB-C enables faster transfer speeds.

Why has Apple waited so long to consider USB-C for the iPhone, especially years ago since the technology became popular? Well, Gorman referred to the EU proposal that requires many devices, including phones, to be equipped with a USB-C port. Gurman specifically said that this legislation was a “key reason” for Apple’s move to USB-C.
