Next year's iPhones might ditch the Lightning connector
Since Microsoft has been doing the unthinkable lately by adding Unix/Linux capabilities to Windows, the adoption of USB Type-C in Apple's MacBook series arrived like a rather small surprise. Now, the time has come for Apple to take it all to the next level, so they are apparently working on replacing the Lightning connector in the next-gen iPhone and iPad devices with USB Type-C.
According to sources from the industry connected to Apple's suppliers, the tech giant based in Cupertino "is redesigning chargers and related interface for its next-generation iPhone and iPad devices, and will likely have its 2019 series of iPhones come with USB Type-C support."
Obviously, this major design change needs to be carefully tested, the next-gen iPhones and iPads will keep the Lightning connector. This leaves enough time for the third parties involved in the accessory market to come up with good adapters for those who will carry around their existing accessories after Apple makes the switch from Lightning to USB Type-C.
What do you think about such a move? If you would have the power to choose, would you keep the Lightning connector around on the iPhone and iPad or not? Why? Let us know in the comments.
