There may be a few changes made to the next round of iPhones. Bloomberg scribe Mark Gurman has reported that Apple is testing out a new set of iPhones that have USB-C capabilities. The Los Angeles-based Apple insider has hinted that the newly developed phones would not be available until 2023 “at the earliest.”
Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman is not the first Apple insider to offer such information. Previously, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple’s iPhone will “abandon Lightning port and switch to USB-C port” within the next 24 months.
“My latest survey indicates that 2H23 new iPhone will abandon Lightning port and switch to USB-C port. USB-C could improve iPhone’s transfer and charging speed in hardware designs, but the final spec details still depend on iOS support,” Kuo tweeted.
“It’s expected to see existing USB-C-related suppliers of Apple’s ecosystem (e.g., IC controller, connector) become the market’s focus in the next 1-2 years, thanks to vast orders from iPhones and accessories’ adoption of USB-C ports.”
Thus far, Apple has not commented on these reports.
