Over the last Apple years planned, that harms the number of interface connectors on the Mac. The MacBook Pro 13-inch, released in 2012, was eight, and thin MacBook Air sample 2015 - and four. The 12-inch MacBook has only two: 3,5-миллиметровое аудиогнездо and universal USB-C, which simultaneously serves for charging, data transmission and connection of the monitors. Precisely USB-C is called the interface in the near future, which will soon be actively used in all modern devices, displacing current standards.
As China reported Wednesday Anzhuo resource, instead of the Lightning connector interface to the next generation Apple smartphone will be equipped with a USB-C connector compatible with fast charging technology. Edition refers to an authorized source close to the company. In the case of confirmation of this information, the iPhone 7 must be the first mobile device of Cupertino with the USB-C interface.
There are several arguments in favor of what Apple intends to give up Lightning in favor of a new connector. The company went from 30-pin to Lightning for several reasons: the highest power, high speed data transfer, compact dimensions, the "symmetry". USB-C combines all these qualities and provides a number of advantages, including rapid charging support and the ability to use a USB-BC gadget for charging other devices. In addition, the USB-C can be used for anything: for connection of "flash", monitors, external hard drives and other peripheral devices for charging and for video transmission, etc.
USB-C is more profitable Lightning, both from the standpoint of cost of the accessories, and for facilities. Cables, brackets, adapters are compatible with all devices, regardless of platform. Another reason to go to the Apple USB-C - EU requirement. Recently, countries reached a preliminary agreement on the introduction of universal charger adapted to any mobile device, including a smartphone.
iPhone 7 was released in September 2016 - four years after the launch of Lightning. This is more than enough for Apple to keep the person, denying interface customization.
