Apple iPhone finally switching to USB-C from Lighting port.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Apple marketing lead Greg Joswiak gave direct confirmation that the company will replace the Lighting port with USB-C even if his team is unhappy with the change.
The European Union has ordered Apple to stop using Lightning cables in their devices.
The reason for the order is that Apple is not using the standardised micro-USB cable and they are using their own proprietary Lightning cable.
Apple has said that Lightning cables are faster and more durable than micro-USB cables.
But the European Union doesn't agree with Apple. They have ordered Apple to stop using Lightning cables in their devices.
If the iPhone had a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, it would be able to connect to more devices and accessories.
In the interview, Greg Joswiak and Craig Federighi (software VP) didn't mention any timeline for the switch, but in future iPhones we can expect a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port.
