Apple’s Lightning Port to be Switched by Android-Style USB-C type on the New iPhone 11?






It’s in the air that there’s a strong chance of Apple abandoning its Lightning port for a USB-C type charging port with its next iPhone.

As quite strongly established the “Lightning” had been a key feature since 2012 and if Apple follows through, the old cables would become superfluous.

A “Screengrab” of the new recovery mode screen in iOS 13 (the next version of Apple’s iPhone software) kind of confirms the deal.

Apple has already undertaken the USB-C cables for its iPad Pro. The change if executed on the phones will lead to all the current chargers going down the drain lest to be used for the new phones.



The iPhone 13 download isn’t absolutely out in the open yet but, it will be officially released in September along with the fresh and new iPhone 11. Fans can obviously access a beta version of it via the Apple websites.

Along with the change in cables, reportedly, the common iTunes icon will also no longer be there and could be replaced by an icon of a “laptop”.

In the older versions of the OS, the cable would point to the iTunes logo during a restore from the computer. But now, it shows a generic silhouette of a laptop.

Also, iTunes could now be split into Music, Podcasts and Books.



The USB-C type is a standard connector for several Android phones and laptops and is inherently being use by Samsung , OnePlus and Google Pixel in some of their phones.

Original Apple chargers sell for around $25 and the copies are available for quite a low amount. But, for quite some time now USB-C has made quite a fan base.

These C type cables allow the devices to charge way faster than any other older type of cable could as it allowed only a limited amount of power in.

After iPad Pro being released with the C-type port Apple enthusiasts had been hoping for a similar change and feature availability in the new iPhones.


Apple has come a long way since it ditched the 30-pin connector in 2012 and embraced the “Lightning” port.

But should the port be changed the older adapters and chargers would all be rendered redundant. The users sure have raised a few complaints before the Apple Launch event.
