Also, the European Union has announced its plans to make USB Type-C port standard in all smartphones. It might even charge a fine to any company that doesn’t comply with this rule.
For Apple iPhone users across the globe, there is a good news for all of them! For the first time in its iPhone series, the US-based smartphone brand Apple may bring a USB Type-C port. A Type-C port for charging is likely to feature as the upcoming Apple iPhone 14 Pro model. Apple has three major reasons to include this new feature in the upcoming model as the BGR India report stated that LeaksApplePro and iDropNews revealed about it.
The report further reveals that Apple iPhone 14 Pro will be the only iPhone with a Type-C port to be launched in 2022. The transfer speed can also be one of the reasons why Apple might switch to a Type-C port.
According to the report, the main reason why Apple might decide to add a Type-C port in its upcoming model is to protect the environment. If the tech giant switches to the universally accepted standard, it will reduce electronic waste. Notably, it might even result in cost-cutting. It is expected that the non-pro models will also feature the Type C port starting 2023.
Notably, iPhone 13 Pro models support UFS 2.0 speeds, while the USB Type-C port will support UFS 3.0 speed. Apple’s MacBook and tablets now come with a Type-C port so there are chances that the iPhones might also come with one.
Meanwhile, Apple has announced that it will repair iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models suffering from an issue that affects the speakers for free. In a new bulletin, the Cupertino-based tech giant said that a “very small percentage” of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are experiencing issues with the receiver because of a component that might fail on the receiver module.
As of right now, this issue is known to only affect the base iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro variants, and not the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
