Apple 2017 iPhones to Feature Lightning Ports, Not USB Type-C
Reports from a few days ago revealed that Apple might be making another major change to its iPhone devices and replace the Lightning port with USB Type-C on upcoming units. The move was said to be made on the iPhone 8, the phone that marks the ten-year anniversary since the first iPhone was announced.
The move wouldn’t have been that surprising, considering that Apple unexpectedly ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 launched last year. It would have certainly caught the attention of the market and Apple’s upcoming phones would have followed the trend to adopt USB Type-C ports, found on the company’s latest MacBooks.
