(ANSA) – MILAN, MAY 16 – Apple could change the charging port on the iPhone 15, arriving in 2023. The move would lead to the transition from today’s Lightning to the Usb-C standard. This would be a response to the continuing pressures of the European Union to adopt a single power standard for technological devices, the Usb-c in fact. According to the latest revelations made to Bloomberg by Apple’s expert analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the American giant is said to be working on accessories, including AirPods and peripherals such as mice and keyboards, which are recharged via USB-c. Kuo shared the prediction in response to a tweet he posted on May 11 in which he claimed Apple would redesign the iPhone to fit the standard by the second half of 2023. Bloomberg later confirmed Kuo’s prediction. . According to data cited last year by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee of the European Union, about 80% of smartphones and tablets on the market already use USB-c, with iPhones being the only exception among the most famous brands. From the first iPhone in 2007 to the iPhone 4s in 2011, Apple used the 30-pin connector. Starting with the iPhone 5, the company has switched to the Lightning port, which can be plugged into charging from either side, just like the Usb-C. The choice of a proprietary connector has allowed the American brand to control the range of accessories compatible with its products, effectively creating a market in its own right and unique. Not to completely end it, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says Apple itself may be selling an adapter to allow people to continue using Lightning-in gadgets even on Usb-C iPhones. To date, the only Apple devices with standard input are the 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 4th generation iPad Air, and 6th generation iPad mini. (HANDLE).
