And that’s the new Lightning standard.
Apple has implemented a USB Type-C port in the iPad Pro and added a connector to the fast charging adapter. But at the same time, the company is in no hurry to introduce it into the iPhone, continuing to rely on the proprietary Lightning connector. Many believe that it is time for Apple to say goodbye to this port. But, alas, not this year. The message came, that all models of the iPhone 14 series will receive Lightning, which will be updated to the USB 3.0 standard.
This was shared with a wide audience by iDrop News. It is believed that with the advent of USB 3.0, owners of new iPhones will be able to transfer files and data from a smartphone to a computer much faster. The promised bandwidth should be 4.8 Gbps. And it seems that everything is not bad and in its new version Lightning looks quite a viable connector, but still, surely there will be those who will wonder: why not USB Type-C?
The source believes that it’s all about money or Apple’s greed. Now the company earns well on the royalties that it receives from each produced accessory with a Lightning connector. These are solid amounts, which the company does not intend to refuse. And it will do this until the charging port disappears into the iPhone and the devices switch completely to wireless charging.
