iPhone 14 will be the first Apple smartphone without bangs and the last one with a Lightning connector

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years since the Lightning connector was introduced on an iPhone smartphone. It was introduced in 2012 along with the iPhone 5 smartphone.

Apple, according to famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, will finally abandon this connector and switch to the more common and popular USB-C. But that won’t happen until next year, when the iPhone 15 hits the market. Thus, iPhone 14 should be not only the company’s first smartphone without bangs (the first since the iPhone X), but also the last smartphone equipped with a Lightning connector.

The new iPhone, which will be released in the second half of 2023, will abandon the Lightning port and switch to a USB-C port. USB-C may improve iPhone transfer and charging speeds, but the final specifications still depend on iOS support.

The European Parliament has been discussing the topic of a common charging standard for mobile device manufacturers in the EU for quite some time. Despite resistance from major technology companies, members of the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of the new law back in April. The EU’s Internal Market and Consumer Affairs Committee agreed to adopt USB-C as the standard charging connector in the European region, with 43 votes in favor and two against.

According to the latest reports, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get larger screens and smaller bezels than their predecessors.
