iPhone 8 Ditching Lightning Connector For USB-C? There are also reports from Mac Otakara which says, Lightning to USB-C Cable will remain an optional purchase for Apple iPhone 8.
Apple has always been rumoured to be forethought something momentous for its next release, which will mark ten years after all the set afloat of its first ever iPhone.
While that's a welcome change, I'm a bit disheartened to hear that Apple isn't including USB-C. In order to safely provide fast charging on the iPhone 8, Kuo expects Apple to TI's power management offerings and Cypress' Power Delivery chips.
Nintendo Switch Will Still Require Friend Codes to Add Some Players
According to Express.Co.Uk, Amazone is now sold out, although third-party sellers are bound to start listing consoles tomorrow. Launching much earlier in the year than its predecessors, the Switch will likely appeal at first to Nintendo's loyal fan base.
Apple is now using the USB-C ports for the newer Apple laptops to charge them and connect with other devices. However, an analyst is refuting those claims stating that all three new iPhones this year will continue using the Lightning port.
Instead, the new device (expected in September) might have a USB-C port - which would mean users would have to buy new chargers, docks and connectors, according to Wall Street Journal. Also, the new L-shaped battery technology in the iPhone 8 will enable faster charging as well.
A previous report stated that Apple's iPhone 8 would adopt the Type-C USB interface and leave the Lightning port behind. Fully wireless charging, an OLED display, a virtual fingerprint sensor and a glass body have all been rumored as making an appearance in the next device. Kuo also suggested that the larger OLED version of the next iPhone may have a faster charging speed than its smaller siblings. The phone itself will be a similar size to the current 4.7-inch iPhone 7, with the display reaching closer to the edges to more effectively use the device size. The launch of the iPhone 5 in 2012 nearly made the connector useless were it not for adapters sold that still made it possible to use the connector. It will reportedly have a 5.8-inch OLED screen, and it could be called the "iPhone X".
