iPhone users, you may have to wait another year for this Android technology
As we are getting closer to the launch of Apple's annual lineup of iPhones, leaks and rumours about them are pouring in.
The latest report comes in from Digitimes that states that Apple will replace the lightning cable port with a USB-C port on the 2019 iPhones. This report says that "Apple is still in its redesign phase and will not be able to equip the technology in its upcoming iPhones." Further, the report reveals that Apple is going to make this change not only iPhones in 2019, but also the iPad as well.
The report quotes the sources at analog IC vendors. Apple has already adopted the USB Type-C in its MacBook series, after which various laptop makers followed suit.

Citing the source, Digitimes said that the popularity and mass adoption of Type-C interface among other handset manufacturers will still depend on the adoption in Apple's iPhones.
Back in March, a report by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) said that Apple’s upcoming smartphones may sport USB Type-C port. Though the wording of that report was not very clear, it did hint that Apple may be planning to drop the Lightning cable for the industry standard USB Type -C.
Recently, it was also reported that Apple slashed the price of its USB-C to Lightning to $19 in the US. The drop is said to be by $6 as the accessory was previously sold for $25. Another report has indicated that Apple could bring a new 18W USB-C Power Adapter, sporting a new design. The adapter could be smaller in size while delivering faster charging rates if not the same. This new adapter is also said to replace the 12W adapter that currently comes with the iPad.
There have been reports that have also revealed the prices of the upcoming iPhones as well. The cheapest iPhone from the 2018 line up will be priced somewhere between $600 (roughly Rs 40,300) to $700 (roughly Rs 47,000). This handset is expected to feature a 6.1-inch LCD display. The second iPhone that is said to come with a 5.8-inch OLED display panel will be between $800 (roughly Rs 53,700) and $900 (roughly Rs 60,400) and the most expensive of the lot is going to be a 6.5-inch OLED "iPhone X Plus" will be priced between $900 (roughly Rs 60,400) to $1000 (roughly Rs 67,100).
