It’s not one of those big leaks that Jon Prosser is badgering us about, but the fact that the Fudge filter brings us from your Twitter is important. According to him, the next iPhone range we will see presented in September or October will still have a Lightning port and it won’t make a move to a USB-C port.
Apparently there was a series of prototypes of the iPhone 12 with USB-C, but have been discarded and do not go into production en masse. Prototypes with Lightning ports do, which means that we will continue to have this port for loading and data transfer for at least another year. This is in line with what Prosser has said in the past, and he is also committed to the continuity of the Lightning Port.
The iPhone 2021, without port and with Smart Connector
The important change in this aspect will be seen in the iPhone of 2021, according to Fudge’s tweet. It will go to no portsThe battery is charged exclusively by wireless means. If you need to transfer data to a Mac, it should be done over a Wi-Fi network because using a cable would be physically impossible. It remains to be seen how the European Union will react to this.
What would be on those “iPhone 13” would be a Smart Connectorwhich would help somehow with the connection to other devices or with some accessories. Until now, this type of connector has only been present on iPad Pro, and is currently used to connect the Smart Keyboard Folio and the Magic Keyboard. It opens up a variety of possibilities when you put it in a phone… so bets are accepted.
