On September 12, 2012, Apple introduced the iPhone 5, which introduced the Lightning connector for the first time.
Even then, at the presentation of the company, it was announced that this would be the American decade. And I didn’t guess. True, it is unlikely that in the future it will remain in the same form.
Countries around the world consume, obliging manufacturers use the charging connector. And that standard will be USB-C.
The era of “lightning” has already passed, according to the technical characteristics, Lightning does not pull out modern speeds at the proper level. USB-C outperforms it by several times. Apple itself understands this, judging by the rumors, testing USB-C in iPhones.
With the 2016 MacBook Pro, it’s time to get USB-C. In 2018, Apple introduced a connector for the MacBook Air and iPad Pro. USB-C is now found across the entire Mac lineup, and soon, according to rumors, the same will be true for the iPad.
We look forward to the autumn presentation. Perhaps the iPhone 14 will become an iPhone with Lightning. [9to5]
