Apple is using the USB-C interface in most of their smartphone and the Macbook devices. But the company might move back to Lightning port by ditching the USB-C platform for iPhone devices. The new smartphones from the company will have Lightning Port over USB-C port if we believe the rumors. Although some version of the iPhone will stick to the USB-C connector, the future generations will ditch the same and will choose Lightning ports. The report was shared by the Apple Supply Chain information blog, Macotakara, which tracks the information and leaks about Apple from supply chain sources in Japan and China.
According to the report, the upcoming smartphones from Apple will include the USB-C port and will have a 5W USB-A charger. The charger won’t support the Fast charging, so users have to use USB-C to Lightning Port dongle to connect their Lightning adaptor and fast charge the device. To eliminate this issue, iPhones released later will come with the Lightning port with sad departure of USB-C standard. Although the iPad Pro made debut with USB-C port, Apple is not happy with the iPhone and USB-C combo. The people have to use multiple dongles to connect to the current lightning accessories that users own.
As the iPads are portrayed as portable versions of their laptops and competing with Surface Book, the company is not keen on ditching the ports on the same. Ditching the USB-C over Lightning is like a demotion for the company, but it will increase the usability of the lightning accessories that people have from past iterations of the device. Also, the decision of providing a 5W USB-C charger with the device is outrageous because even when the devices support the fast charging feature, the charger will not support the same.
