Despite the success and demand, the iPhone has a number of elements that are so old and require changes. Among the solutions that do not correspond to the spirit of the times and which it is time for Apple to abandon, Lightning is often called. We may finally get the USB Type-C port on the iPhone.

And until recently, Apple has demonstrated a resilience to its own ideals and a desire to hold on to a proprietary connector to the end. In this situation, the forecast sounded quite unexpectedly that the iPhone will still acquire a USB Type-C port.
