The next generation of iPhones can be equipped with all sorts of new groundbreaking features, but it will still be behind the rest of the mobile world in one major aspect, according to a new report.
Apple will again relay the USB-C port and instead equip the 2019 iPhone model with a lightning gate, according to the Japanese tech site. The report, which was first discovered, also states that the next iPhone will continue to be bundled with a USB-A charger.
The reason why this comes as a surprise to many is that the iPhone is one of the latest holdouts in the smartphone world, as most modern phones (especially Android devices) have taken the new USB-C port for charging and data transfer.
This latest news about Apple transmitting USB-C to the iPhone, unlike one from last summer, when the sources on the supply side claimed that USB-C ports were on the way for Apple's 2019 iPhone offer.
Macotakara claims that the cause of Apple's insistence on keeping Lightning Cable is simple: money. The report claims that Apple can make more money by keeping Lightning-related accessories in at least a few generations of the smartphone.
But it is especially confusing that you keep the Lightning port on the iPhone when considering how nearly every power generation Apple device, from the latest to Macbook and Macbook Pro, replaced its old ports to replace with USB-C . Apple has even contributed to the creation of the USB-C port, so it is odd that it continues to fail to embrace it on the flagship.
Even more madman is Apple's reported decision to include a USB-A charger over a USB-C. Apple can choose to keep the Lightning port, but still provide customers with a loose solution to compatibility issues with other USB-C devices.
Instead, users will continue to be forced to hide extra money for a cable peripheral that will allow them to connect their iPhone to the MacBook. Even the included iPhone Lightning EarPods will remain incompatible with Apple's laptops without a dongle.
Finally, what is here seems to be.
