Apple recently submitted a new patent that may have revealed the next big thing for the iPhone. At issue is a new charging port that can replace Lightning and the much requested USB-C.
This document supports the theory that Apple should not transition to USB-C on its smartphones. Instead, American technology prepares a new proprietary entry, more convenient than the one currently used.
iPhone could use a new magnetic input
In the document submitted for approval to the American entities, we found out about a new type of entry for the iPhone. The new entry will be magnetic and closely resembles what was once used on MacBook as MagSafe.
This time, the illustrations reveal a connector with a rounded tip that will be attached to the iPhone for charging. Being magnetic, this implies that a pull on the cable can disconnect you from the device instead of bringing it with you.
We don’t know if this technology will be able to make its debut in 2021 at the launch of the iPhone 13. But once it is already approved, Apple has all the conditions to do so.
If you do, the theory that Apple’s next generation of mobile devices will embrace an ideology without any door will vanish. This approach still raises many fears within the company and this may delay its adoption.
USB-C on the iPhone seems less and less likely
A few days ago, the renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo prophesied, in one of his reports, that Apple has no intention of introducing USB-C on its iPhone. The technology justifies this option with fears in the water resistance of the equipment and also with its accessory program “Made for the iPhone”.
This document states that we are more likely to see an iPhone without ports than one with USB-C. However, the disappearance of Lightning would not be expected in the coming years.
With the disclosure of this patent, we found that Apple is studying an alternative to Lightning and that it does not pass through USB-C. It now remains to be seen whether this new technology will ever be used in the company’s products.
