Will Apple drop the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C and pave the way for a universal Apple charging standard?
Will Apple drop the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C and pave the way for a universal charging standard? USB-C can drive displays, have 10GB network interfaces and is already the standard for Apple Macbooks. Mac owners already have adapters and devices that use USB-C for both charging and external devices. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one charger you can use from MacBooks to iPads to iPhones? Furthermore with the push to get rid of the headphone jack having a universal port between non Apple devices drives innovation and choice for USB headphones.
The big question is how would you respond to this? Would you want this as Apple consumers or would this be too soon after switching to lightning to switch again. What do you think?
