USB-C port in the opinion of popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo Will not be coming on next iPhone It will never come. Apple has no plans to adopt the USB-C standard on future iPhone devices or integrate a touch ID sensor on the main power button. Two things already in place on the iPod Air 2020.
As Kuo explains on the Apple Insider website, he believes that USB-C is detrimental to the profitability of Apple’s MFI program and that its waterproof features are less than that of Lightning and MagSafe. So, Kuo believes that instead of an iPhone with USB-C, Apple can switch to an iPhone that relies solely on wireless charging and especially MagSafe technology.
With MagSafe technology, Apple will have a “solution” to both of Kuo’s concerns. By eliminating ports, MagSafe Charging will be more waterproof than the standard Lightning port, while Apple will continue to regulate it through the MFI program and ensure that the benefits of charge licensing can continue to be reaped. .
However, Cuo says Apple does not believe the Magsafe Ecosystem will be the only way to charge the iPhone. That’s why he predicts that Apple will continue to use the Lightning port, at least for the “immediate future”.
The Kuo report also dismisses another persistent rumor that Apple wants to add a Touch ID sensor to the power button, similar to the one provided in the updated iPod Air last year. According to Kuo, there is no timetable for such a move. However, the Bloomberg website reports that Apple is testing a touch screen sensor built directly into the screen for this year’s iPhone series.
The Quo report also includes information about Apple’s upcoming iPhone series, such as small notes, high refresh screens, a hole-punch selfie camera for the 2022 iPhone, and the iPhone 8 ‘, which can be folded back in 2023.
