It’s not easy for Apple to move its lightning bolt, because it means giving up billions of dollars in profits. According to the latestmedia reports, Apple will start in 2021, the new iPhone and iPad interface adjustments, simply put, these devices are using USB-C interface, so as to ensure greater compatibility.
Before that, Japanese media reported that Apple’s fourth-generation iPad Air would be equipped with a USB-C interface to replace the Lightning. Apple has the USB-C interface for the first time on the iPad Pro, released in 2018, but other iPad models are still lightning.
Earlier this year, it was rumoured that Apple was developing an 11-inch iPad Air, which will be launched later this year.
In addition, the iPhone 13 model, which emerged last week, also showed that the new machine appeared to be using a USB-C interface, replacing the Lightning interface. While there have been rumours that the iPhone will use a USB-C interface, this has not been implemented, and from the model, the iPhone 13 may use Samsung’s new under-panel sensor technology, which allows the camera to be fitted below the screen.
For Apple, switching from the Lightning interface to USB-C is not the ultimate option, and it will truly be interfaceless, that is, it will not retain the iPhone’s charging interface, which will then be replaced by a true wireless charge.
The chain also said Apple could offer a “fullwireless experience” on its high-end iPhone in 2021, using wireless charging with Smart Connector for data transmission.
