The lightning port is one of the most important features that Apple has incorporated into its iPhones. However, due to a proposal from the European Union, many gadgets, including smartphones, will have to feature Type-C or USB-C connections in the near future.

According to reports, Apple has tested iPhones with USB-C connectors in response to the idea, but we may not see it installed in devices this year. Apple may not switch ports until 2023, according to sources.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently suggested that Apple may switch to USB-C ports by the second half of 2023, maybe with the new iPhone lineup.

This would be a significant change for Apple, but it is not surprising given that many of its other products, such as the iPad Air, iPad Pro, and iPad mini, have already switched to USB-C. In addition, Apple debuted the lightning port in 2015 and has continued to use it for iPhone charging ever since.

The primary reason for Apple to reconsider switching from a lightning port to USB-C is European legislation. However, swapping ports also have advantages, like higher transfer speeds and universality.

Furthermore, rumours have circulated that Apple is creating a portless iPhone, with sources saying that the corporation has been working on iPhones without a charging port for several years. However, there are no reports of whether any of these testings were completed or whether a portless iPhone is on the way anytime soon.

This isn’t the first time Apple has dealt with European Commission demands or challenges. The European Union has accused Apple of abusing its market dominance in contactless smartphone payments and violating competition regulations.

So, let’s wait until next year to see if Apple follows through on USB-C iPhones.
