Will There Be A USB-C Port Charging for Apple iPhone 14 Pro?

- Updated: 22nd Nov 2021, 17:05 IST

Apple recently launched the iPhone 13 series and now, iPhone 14 Pro rumours have already started to make rounds. Among the small addition and changes in its design, there is one thing that remains unchanged in the series. Lightning cable is still a part of the design of the iPhones. But rumours of Apple switching it with a USB-C charging port has always been in the air. However, the company has not done much in the area with that aspect.

But it looks like this time it might be a different scenario. From the time it launched, all iPhone models have featured the connectivity port for charging. It looks like Apple might finally introduce a USB Type-C port on the iPhone 14 Pro models.

According to tipster LeaksApplePro and iDropNews, the Pro models in 2022 could come with a USB Type-C port over Lightning. The report suggests that the transfer speeds could be one of the reasons for Apple to ditch Lightning in favour of USB Type-C. The Lightning port on the iPhone 13 Pro models supports USB 2.0 speeds. In comparison, USB Type-C supports USB 3.0, resulting in faster read and write speeds. With a faster sport, it would become easier for people to quickly transfer ProRes videos from their iPhone Pro models to a Mac or desktop.

However, why the USB Type-C rumour holds more weightage this time is due to legal and environmental issues. Apple wants its products and manufacturing to be as eco-friendly as possible. Last year, the company made a big deal about removing the charger from the iPhone box, as it helps the environment.

But the most attractive part of this rumour is that a switch to USB-C starting next year could help new iPhone buyers more than ever, especially if they have other Apple devices such as a MacBook or iPad, which are all on Type-C USB now.

  • Apple replacing lightning with USB-C port charging rumours have started once again.
  • They have already been swapping lightning ports with USB-C on an increasing number of iPads.
