Apple won’t make the change that many ask for on the iPhone

IPhone users and fans have been calling for reform of the Lightning entrance for several years. As these are the only devices in the Apple portfolio to use this input, a uniform connector is required, preferably for USB-C.

However, the most recent report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo rules out any plan by Apple to abandon the Lightning entry. To what he mentions, this will not happen, at least, in the “foreseeable future”.

Lightning entry on iPhone will remain for years to come

Many want to replace the Lightning input with USB-C for greater uniformity of connectors among all Apple devices. It should be remembered that devices such as the iPad Pro, iPad Air, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air are already dominated by USB-C.

iPhone 12

It would be a logical step to do the same on Apple smartphones, however, the company is not interested in this change. And the motivation advanced by Ming-Chi Kuo can be seen as purely financial.

We believe that USB-C is detrimental to the profitability of the MFi business and its waterproof specification is inferior to Lightning and MagSafe“.

First, Apple seems to justify its reluctance to adopt USB-C by invoking the Made for iPhone (MFi) accessory program. This consists of a series of accessories certified by American technology for their mobile devices, but whose development is dependent on a commission paid by their partners.

Second, the American company raises concerns about the water resistance provided by the USB-C port. This justification is far from being consensual, not least because most Android devices with IP68 certification use USB-C.

If there is no Lightning, then there will be an iPhone without ports

Ming-Chi Kuo does not neglect, however, the possibility that Apple will get rid of Lightining on the iPhone. But if this happens, it will always be in favor of equipment without a door.

This could be enhanced by MagSafe, a technology that Apple resuscitated at the end of 2020 on the iPhone 12. However, this technology is far from mature enough to satisfy all the requirements of the Lightning entry.

Specific actions like transferring data, completing iPhone recovery or making diagnostics are not feasible with MagSafe. These are points that Apple will have to safeguard when making the leap to an iPhone without ports.
