New iPhone models with USB Type-C connection are said to be being tested

Apple is reportedly preparing to pack the USB Type-C connector in its future iPhone models. The Cupertino-based company is preparing to replace the old Lightning charging connector with the USB Type-C on the mobile phones. The change may not take place until 2023. Apple’s MacBook and iPad models currently have a USB Type-C connection. The tech giant is also said to be working on an adapter that would allow future iPhones to work with accessories designed for the current Lightning connector.

According to a report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is working to change the iPhone’s charging port, and the company is testing new iPhones and adapters with USB Type-C connectivity. According to the report, Apple will likely keep the Lightning connector for this year’s new models, and the switch “wouldn’t happen until 2023 at the earliest.”

Currently, Apple’s iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad Mini offer USB Type-C connectivity, while accessories like AirPods and the Apple TV remote use the Lightning connector. The European Union’s push to introduce a universal charger for smartphones is said to be the main driving force behind Apple’s move to consider the change. The European Commission is of the opinion that a uniform cable for all devices will also save electronic waste.

The report comes a few days after trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that Apple would swap the Lightning connector for USB-C in the second half of 2023. The alleged iPhone 15 models are said to come with a USB type. C port.

Apple first introduced the Lightning connector in 2012 with the iPhone 5. The company added the USB Type-C port to the MacBook Pro back in 2016.

The company is reportedly working on the iPhone 14 series. The lineup is expected to include four models – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
