Mark Gurman also bet on “iPhones 15” with USB-C

This week, we talk here about the analyst forecast Ming-Chi Kuo around the use of the entrance USB-C of iPhones (probably) next year. Now the reporter Mark Gurmanprovided Bloombergis the one who came to corroborate this information.

According to him, Apple is trying “the future iPhone model that replaces the current Lightning charging port with USB-C connection”, a move that, in our opinion, could help the company according to new European rules.

In addition to testing models with USB-C ports last month, Gurman said that Apple is still working on an adapter that will allow these iPhones to work with devices designed for Lightning connector. However, it warns that if Apple is ahead with the change, it will at least happen in 2023 – that is, with “IPhones 15”.

By switching to USB-C, Apple will be able to easily charge chargers from its various devices. Most iPads and Macs already have USB-C instead of lightning. That means Apple users can’t afford a charger for their iPhones, iPads and Macs – the odd issue has given Apple a passion for convenience. Wireless chargers for iPhone and Apple Watch also use USB-C to connect their devices.

The new device will also be compatible with many of the existing chargers for non-Apple devices such as Android phones and tablets. Gurman, however, also pointed out that the exchange would come with “payments”, which could create consumer tensions.

In that sense, most Apple devices – including AirPods, Siri Remote, MagSafe Battery, and MagSafe Duo charger – also use Lightning input. There are also many third-party devices, such as chargers, adapters, and other microphones, that use existing connectors.

By the way, Gurman added that the move “would reduce Apple’s control of the iPhone accessories store.” More importantly, Apple forced manufacturers to pay to use the Lightning connector and engage in strict approval procedures. USB-C is the standard used by many consumer devices, making it extremely difficult to control its current level.

Regarding the European bill, Gurman pointed out that Apple could develop models of iPhones for Europe that are compatible with the entry process and retain the Lightning port in other regions – however, it Note that there are different versions of his iPhone with different hardware. “Can lead to more stress, including headaches on the device.” Also, it is unclear whether Apple will still be able to cancel the switch to USB-C if European policy does not go ahead.

The fact is that, at present, there are two main points pointing in the same direction.
