2019 iPhone to continue using Lightning port and 5W charger?
Japanese website Macotakara backtracked on an earlier report in regards to the 2019 iPhone switching to USB-C port.
Its sources, that are mentioned to be from a collection of producers, now declare that Apple will retain the Lightning port and 5W charger for the 2019 iPhone lineup in order that it could possibly maintain prices down, and keep away from irritating clients and accent makers with a brand new port.
DigiTimes reported in June 2018 that Apple would start the transition to USB-C for the iPhone in 2019 based mostly on data offered by sources on the analog IC distributors.
The final connector change occurred in 2012 when Apple changed the 30-pin connector with the Lightning port. The 30-pin connector was used for 9 years. However, Apple introduced the USB-C port to the 2018 iPad Pros and even began promoting a standalone 18W USB-C energy adapter.
