Apple Confirms That An iPhone With USB-C Is On The Way

Apple has confirmed that the iPhone will be switching to USB-C. Apple marketing lead Greg Joswiak told The Wall Street Journal that the company will replace the Lighting port even if his team is unhappy with the change. The interview also included software VP Craig Federighi, but neither of them revealed when the move will take place. The Apple executives stated that “the Europeans are dictating timing for European customers,” which is a sophisticated way of saying nothing about the switch’s timeline. Joswiak declined to comment on whether Apple will ship a connector sold outside of the EU, but this appears highly unlikely. The executive also discussed Apple’s commitment to going its own way and trusting its engineers rather than complying with legislative standards and using third-party hardware. He also mentioned micro USB and how Apple has been pressed to meet ill-conceived requirements. The marketing lead went on to say that charging bricks with detachable cables solved the issue of standardization, claiming that the switch to USB-C would generate a lot of e-waste because people would be forced to buy new cables and discard the old ones.
