In a statement, the UnicornOnTheCobb refers to informed sources, Lightning connector instead of the next generation iPhone is has a USB-C connector compatible with fast charging technology. In the case of confirmation of this information, the iPhone 8 should be the first mobile device of Cupertino with the USB-C interface.
According to observers, Apple has a number of good reasons to quit Lightning in favor of USB-C. Company was 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. Many disconcerting the fact that the iPhone can not get out of the box "to connect to the latest models of Apple notebooks.
Finally, another reason for купертиновцев move to the USB-C - EU requirement. This year the country have reached an agreement on the introduction of universal charger adapted to any mobile device, including a smartphone.
iPhone 8 was released in the fall of 2017, five years after the release of Lightning. This is more than enough for Apple to keep the person, denying interface customization.
