Apple iPhone May Get Type-C Ports, New Apple TV Could Come Later This Year – News18


Apple could soon add USB Type C port on iPhones for charging
A USB type-C port on an Apple iPhone is something many people across the world have wished for. The company is reportedly testing future iPhone models that might replace the lightning port on the Apple iPhone.
According to a report in Bloomberg, the company is also working on an adapter that would let future iPhones work with accessories designed to work with the current Lightning port, so that those with a Lightning port iPhone don’t miss out on any functionality in the future. The reporot published by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that if Apple does go ahead with a type-C port, the change won’t occur at least till 2023 and this year’s iPhone 14 series will continue with the Lightning port.

By moving to USB type-C, Apple will make it easier for users to charge their iPhones more easily and would also streamline the collection of chargers used by its devices. Most of the company’s iPads and Macs already rely on USB type-C rather than lightning. This means that users can not use a single charger for their iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers. Wireless chargers for both the iPhone and Apple Watch also use a USB type-C connector for power bricks.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also predicted the same and said that it might just lead to confusion. The new connectors are also said to be compatible with many existing chargers for non-Apple devices like Android phones and tablets.
However, the majority of Apple accessories including AirPods, the Apple TV remote, MagSafe battery pack, and the MagSafe Duo charger still use the Lightning port, alongside the iPhone.

A separate report has also said that the Cupertino-based giant is also working on a new version of the Apple TV set top box. According to Kuo, the Tim Cook-led company may launch the new Apple TV in the second half of 2022.
Apple will launch a new version of Apple TV that improves cost structure in 2H22. I think that Apple's aggressive strategy of integrating hardware, content, and service amid the recession will help close the gap with its competitors.
