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 can bring a USB Type-C port. The Type-C port for charging may be a feature like the upcoming Apple iPhone 14 Pro model. Apple has three main reasons to incorporate this new feature in the upcoming model as BGR India reports that LeaksApplePro and iDropNews are talking about it.
In fact, the European Union has announced plans to make the Type-C USB port standard on all smartphones. You can even get a fine from any company that does not comply with this rule.
The report also reveals that the Apple iPhone 14 Pro will be the only iPhone with a Type-C port to launch in 2022. The transfer speed may also be one of the reasons Apple may switch to a Type-C port.
Essentially, the iPhone 13 Pro models support UFS 2.0 speeds, while the Type-C USB port will support UFS 3.0 speeds. Apple MacBook and tablets now come with a Type-C port so there are worlds of iPhones that can also come with one.
According to the report, the main reason Apple may decide to include a Type-C port in the upcoming model is to protect the area. If the technology giant changes to a universally accepted standard, it will reduce electrical waste. Essentially, it can even lead to cost-cutting. It is hoped that non-pro models will also feature a Type C port starting in 2023.
Meanwhile, Apple has announced that it will also replace the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models that suffered from a case that affected the speakers for free. In a new issue, Cupertino-based technology giant claims that the “very small portion” of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is experiencing issues with the receiver due to a component that may fail on the receiver module.
Currently, this case is known to apply to the basic iPhone 12 and only the iPhone 12 Pro variants, not the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
