Apple is known for using the lightning ports in their device but if the rumour is true then we could see the new iPhone with the USB type C port. This is highly unlikely that Apple will move to new port as they built the entire industry around lightning port. But this could also be true as they have already adopted the new port in its MacBook Pro lineup. There are many devices that work on the USB type C port but Apple has been avoiding this technology. But what made the Apple decide to drop the lightning port and replace it with USB type C port. The main reason could be the high data transfer rate in the USB type C port.

The lightning port

There are many issues if Apple adopts the new port. The main issue is the compatibility with the previous version of iPhones. Another important point is that Apple generally concentrates of the fast charging capability of iPhones. This is also a point which will prevent Apple from dropping the lightning port. Another fact is that Apple doubled the production of Lightning accessories in the recent times. So, if Apple’s plan would have been to drop the lightning port then it would not have increased the production of its accessories. Now, we could only wait and watch what Apple is going to decide. But it’s highly unlikely that Apple will drop the lightning port from iPhone series yet. But no one could be sure of this fact as Apple as the very bad habit of surprising people. So, just wait and watch for the official announcement of the specification of new iPhone.
