Rumors said about a month ago that Apple could do some unthinkable with iPhone 11 by replacing the lightning port with a USB-C port. Same like Apple did with iPad pro last year and just like the ports found on Macbook laptops these days.
This of course sounds like a great idea and the unification of Apple’s product lines something many of us have been waiting for. But a new report suggests that Apple will stick with the lightning port which has been in use since 2012 in iPhone 2019. However, USB-C port not only supports fast charging but it also fixes the dongle issues when it comes to connecting the iPhone with a new Macbook.
According to Macotakara iPhone 11 will have the same lightning port as previous iPhones. Moreover, these will come with the same 5W USB-A charger in the box even after iPhones are supporting fast charging. This means you’ll have to purchase a separate charger to take advantage of fast charging. All the coming iPhone 2019 will have a slow charger despite having fast charge support.
Apple reportedly decided not to make any new changes in iPhone 11 in terms of port and charger to cut down the cost. As we have seen previously that Apple’s iPhone sale has been cut down already.
Now by sticking to the lightning connector and the charger Apple will save some money and it won’t have to develop other accessories, as replacing lightning port with a USB-C port will require to have USB-C EarPods in the box.
Furthermore, USB-C supports faster-charging speeds and Apple would have to make an 18W USB-C fast charger to ship in iPhone 11 box which is currently being shipped with iPad Pro.
However, this is just a rumor, we’ll see what Apple unveil in iPhone 2019 in September. Whether it sticks to lightning port for one more year or replace it with USB-C port.
