Gorman: The iPhone 14 stays with lightning, and the iPhone 15 begins to transition to USB type-C

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that Apple will launch several new products between Fall 2022 and the first half of 2023.

There are four new iPhone 14 series models included in the list. The company will also release three new Apple Watches, several Macs with Apple M2 and M3 chips, its first mixed reality headset, a new AirPods Pro, an upgraded Apple TV, and more.

Apple will continue to use the Lightning port on all new iPhones this fall. His prediction, however, is that Apple will switch to USB Type-C by 2023.

Thus, the upcoming iPhone 15 series will be the first to feature USB Type-C ports. This Fall, a new entry-level iPad will be released with a USB Type-C port.

Gurman also reveals some details about Apple's mixed reality project, including the Apple A14 SoC and 5G connectivity.

He said the device would have an Apple M2 chip and 16 GB of memory. Apple is developing the Apple M3 chip under wraps. As early as next year, this processor will be used.

The Apple M-series seems to be accelerating the company's plans. From now on, the pace will be increased with the Apple M1 series.

Apple's new iPhone selfie camera is one of the major updates to the iPhone 14 Pro series, according to him. A 48 MP main camera is also included in the new rear camera system.

There is a thinner bezel, a faster Apple A16 processor, and an 'exclamation mark screen' notch on the device. There aren't enough reasons for those with the iPhone 13 series to upgrade to the iPhone 14 series.

These devices will have slightly fewer specifications, after all. There will be the same Apple A15 chip in the iPhone 14 and 14 Max.

The Lightning standard will be the same for all four models. After years of reluctance, Apple appears to have reached a dead end with the Lightning port.

Regulators in the EU and even in the US are trying to create a universal standard. It's easier for Android makers since most have already adopted the USB Type-C.

Apple will have to adapt all its products to a universal standard. It appears there is no way to prevent this, and the iPhone 15 series will finally move to USB C.
