Mark Gurman, one of the most respected Apple analysts, advances today with one of the most desired information by iPhone users. According to him, Apple is even testing the adoption of the USB-C input on its smartphones.
Such information comes a few days after Ming-Chi Kuo mentions a similar scenario. This analyst advanced that the iPhone 15 would be the first to have the much-desired charging and data transfer input.
New story: Apple is indeed planning a switch to USB-C from Lightning for the iPhone, testing future models with the connector as well as an adapter for old accessories. Move would better unify Apple device charging and meet incoming European mandate. https://t.co/hEYORwnqJO

USB-C could reach the iPhone as early as 2023
The information now pointed out by analyst Mark Gurman points to the launch of the first iPhone with USB-C in 2023. Indeed, his predictions corroborate the data that his colleague Ming-Chi Kuo recently mentioned.
This maneuver will be the result of the European Commission’s efforts to standardize the connectivity standard of smartphones in Europe. The European regulator has defined USB-C as the standard that all devices must comply with.
It is still unclear whether iPhones with USB-C input will be a special version designed for Europe or whether they will become the global standard for these devices. The last scenario will be the most desired by all Apple users.
According to Gurman, the first devices with this input will come with a USB-C to Lightning adapter. This accessory will serve to allow the use of older accessories that have the current input used on the iPhone.
The adoption of the USB-C port on the iPhone is one of the oldest rumors regarding Apple smartphones. Since the American adopted this entry in products such as the iPad and MacBook, it is speculated that the iPhone will have the same fate.
However, the American technology has been firm in the defense of Lightning input as a connectivity interface on their smartphones. She has publicly expressed her reasons for maintaining this entry several times.
The fact that it is advanced that Apple is testing iPhones with USB-C input does not mean that it launches them on the market. Thus, this information must be taken into account with great caution and a good dose of moderation of the fans’ enthusiasm.
