Will Apple soon go full USB-C?

San Francisco, May 12, 2022

Apple could replace its proprietary Lightning connector with USB-C on some or all iPhone 15 models launching in 2023, claims analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

While much of the smartphone industry has adopted USB-C, Apple has retained the Lightning connector as its primary charging cable since the 2012 iPhone 5.

Kuo shared the potential news in a tweet, citing his recent supply chain survey. He said a USB-C port could improve the iPhone’s transfer and charging speeds, though final details on specs will depend on iOS support.

Background: The EU – Commission has proposed the enforcement of a universal USB-C port for all new devices.
