Could the next iPhone come with USB-C?

ZDNet suggests that the iPhone 8 might not have a USB-C port built into it, but rather, the charging cable may have a USB-C bit on the other end (not the one that plugs into the device).

Looks like the latest report from Ming-Chi Kuo (via AppleInsider) claims that all iPhone 8 models are going to receive their power through a "Type-C Power Deliver" system that will take advantage of the Lightning port interface.

However, the speculated wireless charging feature of iPhone 8 could be limited to that model for 2017, so buyers of the iPhone 7S, if it would launch in September, would have to wait until 2018 to get that feature.

Dodd continued to say that when the structures were developed, both Earth and Mars would have had liquid water on their surfaces. Haematite tubes from the NSB hydrothermal vent deposits that represent the oldest microfossils and evidence of life on Earth.

As noted by 9to5Mac, the respected analyst says all three new 2017 iPhones will retain the proprietary Lightning port.

Kuo notes that while the iPhone 7S, 7S Plus and 8 will all feature the fast charging support, the OLED-equipped iPhone 8 "may have a faster charging speed thanks to a 2-cell L-shaped battery pack design".

The remake could be bad news for Apple fans wallets, however, as OLED displays cost notably more than LCD products. JPMorgan analyst Rod Hall claims that in the iPhone 8, a laser scanner may either work alongside or replace the fingerprint scanner to unlock your phone.

Additionally, Trump will seek a $54 billion hike in spending on tanks, ships and weapons systems and will trim other priorities. But its decline was slight, falling just 0.1%, buoyed by the president's proposal to increase defense spending by $20 billion.

Kuo's report provides some clarity on why The Wall Street Journal reported that there would be a USB-C "port" (it's actually a connector) for the power cord, but it's clear this connector isn't being used "instead of" the Lightning connector. These two features will create a stir among the iPhone users, the iPhone 8 in particular.

As for data transfers through the Lightning port, Kuo believes Apple isn't prioritizing making data transfers faster.

Apple faced outrage previous year after dropping the headphone cable on iPhone 7 - but users have largely adapted to the change.

Slain SEAL's Father Calls for Expanded Investigation of Yemen Raid
The Defense Department routinely reviews missions that result in death, but a larger formal investigation of combat deaths is rare, and it does not appear that one was started after Owens' death.

This is probably the smartest move for the company as consumers probably aren't ready yet to make the full-on switch to USB-C, even though Apple may want them to. It will reportedly have a 5.8-inch OLED screen, and it could be called the "iPhone X". The remaining areas are for the virtual buttons replacing the home button. It will be interesting to see how iPhone 8 comes with the industry standards to connect other iDevices with iPhone 8.
