Now that Apple’s iPad Pro and MacBook lines come with a USB Type-C port, there have been a number of speculative reports about which type of connector will the new iPhones use. And as September approaches, the picture about what to expect from the 2019 iPhones.
A report has now surfaced on Japan-based blog Mac Otakara that claims that the upcoming models of iPhone may not contain USB-C ports. However, the report also adds that the iPhones may ship with a faster 18W USB-C charger as well as a Lightning to USB-C cable. This is applicable to all the three rumoured models of the 2019 iPhones.
This does make sense as the Cupertino-based technology giant may not be very willing to let go of the Lightning yet, but from what it seems like, the company is trying to make the lives of iOS users easier than what it is right now. The fact that Apple has always shipped new iPhones with a 5W cube charger, in spite of the fact that all its models since iPhone 8 come with fast-charging capabilities, is a constant source of frustration for a number of iOS users.
To recall, it was the redesigned iPad Pro that was the first in Apple’s tablet lineup to come with a faster 18W charger. As of now, if one wants to take an advantage of that iPad Pro’s charger with their iPhone, they would reportedly have to buy an 18W charger and the Lightning to USB-C adapter, which costs almost $50.
However, now that Apple is planning to ship that with the upcoming iPhones, it will seriously be very helpful for a number of users in the future. In addition to charging your iPhone more quickly, this will also help users to plug their smartphone into their Mac laptop without having to buy a cable.
We should mention that a number of reports about the 2019 iPhones have surfaced online. Among the most prominent detail that has popped up more than once is that Apple is expected to launch three iPhones this year too. The three upcoming devices by Apple will be successors of iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.
In fact, even next year, the successor of iPhone XR will not come with an OLED display, if reports are to be believed. Another major detail that has surfaced online is the fact the Apple is planning to add a triple rear camera setup to its iPhone. But then, as of now, it is not clear which among the three iPhones will come with three cameras on its back panel.
