These rumors are flying about iPhone 14 Pro USB-C
A leaker named LeaksApplePro writes for iDropNews that Apple is considering a USB-C port for the iPhone 14. But if it happens then only iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be able to achieve it.
At first sight it seems like the usual iPhone USB-C rumour. Apple’s swapping out the Lightning port with USB-C on a growing number of iPads also helps fuel the iPhone USB-C rumours.

It started with the iPad Pro, which makes sense since these are laptop replacements. We then saw Apple bring USB-C to the iPad Air 4 last year, and this year’s iPad mini 6 tablet has got its own USB-C port.
This hints that Apple could equip all iOS and iPadOS devices with USB-C ports if they wanted to. According to the information, Apple is developing a portless iPhone.

Why does switching to USB-C make sense?
While we have no way of verifying this rumor at this time, the leaker provides three reasons why the switch to USB-C for the iPhone could be easier. Comes from sources familiar with the matter, but anyone with knowledge of Apple’s iPhone business can come along.
In short, it is about transfer speed, legal issues/legal issues and environment.
Superior Data Speed
Apple introduced support for ProRes video with the iPhone 13, but that format consumes a lot of storage. That’s why the new iPhones offer more storage than ever before.

The leaker states that one minute of 4K ProRes video consumes 6GB of storage. After shooting two hours of video on the iPhone, 720GB of storage will be consumed. You’ll need a 1TB iPhone 13 Pro to do this, but the question is, is it possible, someone would shoot that much video on a smartphone?
Well Apple has made a point of its video recording technology with each iPhone generation. People who record a lot of videos will want to transfer/transfer them to a computer for post-processing.
The leaker writes that with Lightning (USB 2.0) you need 3 hours 45 minutes to transfer a 720GB file, while USB-C (USB 4.0) can do the job in 2 minutes and 38 seconds.

Interestingly, a few days back a rumor said that the iPhone 14 phone will get Wi-Fi 6E support and that Apple may debut additional updates to AirDrop technology to make large data transfers between devices possible. This is an important piece of technology for the future iPhone without ports. But people may still prefer redundancy like USB-C, while that super-fast wireless protocol is complete.
pressure from regulators
The EU wants to force handset makers to adopt a common charging standard/standard for all devices. Considering that Android makers have already moved to USB-C, this move is mainly related to Apple. The iPhone is the only smartphone with its own proprietary charging port right now.
Even if the EU decides to force Apple to abandon Lightning, it could be a few years until Apple has to comply. Apple could always develop a portless iPhone by then.
It’s also important here that Apple is facing additional pressure from regulators for its App Store policies. USB-C on the iPhone could help prevent yet another legal battle with someone who doesn’t need it.
As for the data transfer logic, the environment is another self-inflicted problem. Apple wants its products and manufacturing to be as eco-friendly as possible. Last year, the company made a big deal to remove the charger from the iPhone box, as it helps the environment.
Moving the iPhone 14 Pro to USB-C will help Apple argue in the future that it doesn’t have to send charging cables with the handset. Most people already have USB-C cables for other devices. They will also work with the iPhone.
Again, this is just speculation based on an early iPhone 14 Pro rumour. We’ll have to wait several more months to see if other leakers confirm these claims.
