USB-C Coming to 2019 iPhones in a Totally Different Way than Everyone Expects
Apple’s new-generation iPhone is just around the corner, and thanks to the plethora of leaks that have made the rounds in the last six months or so, we know pretty much everything about these upcoming models.
One of the things that are yet to be confirmed, however, concerns the highly-anticipated switch to USB-C, a connector that Apple was believed to be ready to embrace starting with the 2019 generation.
Rumor originally had it that Apple planned to give up on Lightning and use USB-C on the 2019 iPhones, but more recently, people familiar with the matter said the Lightning isn’t going anywhere this year. In other words, if you want USB-C on the iPhone, you need to wait until at least 2020 when the next generation comes out.
And yet, there is a chance that USB-C still makes its way to the 2019 iPhone, albeit not in the way that you expect it.
