Apple is said to have something special planned for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and rumors have circulated for months speculating on different features. If the sources are correct, then Apple will follow rivals like Samsung with a curved OLED display for its new "iPhone 8".
Why the change? The biggest difference between USB-C and Lightning is the former's ability to charge a device in minutes, not hours.
A USB-C cable can handle power, data and video on a single cable with a single connector.
Tech behemoth Apple (AAPL) received two price-target increases on its stock on Tuesday as excitement builds for its upcoming iPhone 8 release. The life span of Lightning thus far is 5 years, and on top of this, Apple last year made the push for Lightning audio. The idea that Apple would drop its long running charging standard in favor of something more ubiquitous is interesting though, to say the least.
Apple's most recent MacBook Pro devices came with USB-C connectivity and increasingly, the smartphone industry is relying on USB-C for syncing and charging. Samsung is already making curved displays for Apple. For more information on Apple, visit the IBD Stock Checkup.
Another new feature in the iPhone 8 is rumored to be 3D sensing for augmented reality, known as AR, and facial-recognition applications. Apple touted the new connector, which was smaller and reversible (meaning the connector end of the cable can be inserted from any side), as having more electronics and pins that would allow more types of communications to happen.
What would you like to see from the new iPhone 8? It would also bring their phones in line with their new line of MacBooks, which have ditched every form of connector except USB-C.
The device could list as a premium option alongside iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and is expected to sell upwards of a $1,000.
Still, the change could be frustrating for longtime Apple users, who may require an adapter to use Lightning accessories with a USB-C iPhone, assuming they are compatible at all.
