A few days ago we shared with you interesting information about the plans of Apple to use USB-C connector on iPhone . According to the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Cupertino-based company will finally abandon the Lightning port and start installing USB-C in its smartphones in 2023.
Now Kuo says that along with the iPhone 15 there will be a line of accessories with USB-C. It will include AirPods, Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and MagSafe Battery Pack for iPhone.
1. Portless iPhone may cause more problems due to current limitations of wireless technologies & the immature MagSafe ecosystem.
2. Other Lightning port products (e.g., AirPods, Magic Keyboard/Trackpad/Mouse, MagSafe Battery) would also switch to USB-C in the foreseeable future. https://t.co/KD14TgBmtr

This seems like a very logical step from Apple, which will help transfer the entire ecosystem of the company’s devices to a single charging port. By the way, in September 2012, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president, said during the presentation of the first iPhone from Lightning that this port will be Apple’s standard “for the next decade.” Well, ten years have passed, it’s time for a change.
Interestingly, Kuo also mentioned in his tweet the iPhone without any connectors. Let me remind you that rumors about Apple’s intentions to present such a model have appeared on the Internet from time to time. However, the analyst noted that due to certain limitations of wireless technology and the immaturity of the MagSafe ecosystem, such a device has not yet been presented.
