Large decision on Tuesday in Europe could decide the eventual fate of the Lightning port on iPhone


The Lightning connector, used to assist with charging a few Apple items and move information on gadgets like the iPhone and iPad, could before long see its last days. The connector supplanted the cumbersome 30-pin dock connector in September 2012 with its 8-pins giving a neater encounter than its ancestor. The principal gadgets utilizing the Lightning port incorporated the iPhone 5, the fifth-age iPod contact, and the seventh-age iPod nano.


Throughout the long term, Apple kept on staying with the Lightning port in any event, when clients maintained that the iPhone should change to the USB-C port which is the one utilized for charging and information move on the greater part of the world's gadgets, including Android phones. Apple hitherto has shunned doing this switch generally on the grounds that, as an exclusive Apple embellishment, the organization brings in cash on the offer of such links.


Yet, there is no rejecting that the general population would favor the extra frill choices that opening up the iPhone to USB-C would permit. Before the end of last year a designing understudy adjusted an iPhone X to permit it to work with a USB-C port and when the gadget went available to be purchased on eBay, it sold for $86,000.

Apple isn't thoroughly heedless to this. Last month we let you know that two Apple "insiders," TF International investigator Ming-Chi Kuo and Bloomberg recorder Mark Gurman said that we could see the USB-C port make its iOS debut on the 2023 iPhone 15. Gurman likewise expresses that Apple is chipping away at a connector that would permit iPhone units to work with adornments intended for use with the ongoing Lightning connector.


One week from now, Apple may be placed into a place that will compel it to dump the Lightning port. On June seventh, the day after Apple's WWDC engineer gathering starts off, the European Union (EU) could declare the aftereffect of a vote that would drive all smartphones and tablets offered in Europe to be furnished with a USB-C port. Since this would be the law in the EU, the inquiry would be whether Apple would need to involve various ports in the U.S. also, Europe.


The response to the inquiry presented above is "presumably not" thus assuming the regulation passes in the EU it could destroy the Lightning port on the iPhone all through the world. Whether or not the EU votes to make USB-C the norm in Europe or Apple concludes to make it happen, any change likely will not happen until 2023 at the earliest.
