New iPhone 8 rumors point towards USB-C port

iPhone 8 Features Leaks Are Boring And Behind Competitors: $1000 Price Tag For Brand Name?

The same report also adds that the next iPhone "would also do away with a physical home button". A number of common threads are woven through all of those achievements, and some are more appreciated than others by Apple fans around the world.

The Wall Street Journal reported today that the iPhone 8 would replace the Lightning connector with a USB Type-C port that's the standard choice for new flagship smartphones in 2017. For one, USB-C is capable of transmitting stuff faster than nearly any other standard around - and that includes USB 3.

Apple is about to get rid of another port from its new iPhone, a year on from removing the headphone jack - but this time around a replacement connection is on the way.

That production comes with the intangible bonus of the highlights his one-of-a-kind running style generates on a weekly basis. Obviously, he and the Steelers will be working on a long term deal before the franchise tag deadline on July 15.

The latest rumour would potentially annoy many customers as new ports means getting new cables and possibly new dongles to connect to older devices. The tech giant originally introduced lightning charging cable on its iPhone 5 back in 2012.

The iPhone 8 could lose the Lightning adapter in favor of USB-C.

While there would be some initial pain in forcing people to switch over, the move to USB-C would make sense overall, and would likely benefit iPhone users. Meanwhile, some of Apple's competitors, including Samsung (ssnlf), have offered curved screens in their high-end handsets.

But the move would also cause headaches for Apple's very big user base. Apple touted the new connector, which was smaller and reversible (meaning the connector end of the cable can be inserted from any side), as having more electronics and pins that would allow more types of communications to happen.

The next-generation iPhone is expected to introduce a long series of improvements, especially because it marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, and the rumor mill has plenty of information in this regard.

Fans complained a year ago when the 3.5mm headphone port was dropped from the iPhone 7. That is a lot of money for even someone habituated to Apple devices. This iPhone is rumored to cost $1,000.
