Back in 2012, Apple caused mass hysteria amongst iPhone owners as it switched the original 30-pin charging port to its current Lightning port.

Now, a reliable leaker claims that Apple may be preparing to change the charging point for a second time.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will finally ditch the Lightning port for USB-C in its 2023 iPhone, rumoured to be called the iPhone 15.

The leak comes shortly after the EU unveiled plans to force all new smartphones – including iPhones – to use USB-C as standard

I Call True: I mean it is being mandated in Europe and Apple no longer supply phones with chargers so I can see this happening, especially considering they have already done it with other products in their range

Better late than never. Apple have been ripping customers off for ages with their own iPhone only charger. About time they were held to task and made to change.
