Your current iPhone cable may soon be useless.
A report is claiming Apple is considering ditching it’s current charging cables and implementing USB-C for iPhones. The USB-C cable has been used by Android users since 2014 and iPhone users may soon be using the same cord.
The USB-C is the latest charger for many laptops and Android phones and is already used by Google Pixel 2, Samsung Galaxy S9, and OnePlus6. Even the latest iPad Pro uses the cord! Apple moved on from their original 30-pin connector back in 2012 when the lighting cable came with the release of the iPhone 4. If the change gets the green light, docks, adapters, and other plug-in accessories will be incompatible.
With this new change on the horizon, Twitter users are sounding off with their thoughts. Check out a couple of the tweets below:
Finally, I might actually have to upgrade, I can't stand having so many kinds of chargers. USBC is excellent.

So it seems like Apple is putting USB C on their phones… On the other side. All new USB C power adapters then to make you throw away all your old USB adapters? Also I get the feeling the rumoured noise cancelling AirPods are also going to be announced together

Also, Apple is rumored to revive the infamous iPod Touch again. According to Japanese Apple tracking site Macotakara, the new device will have a revamped design and improved performance. The iPod was originally Apple’s most popular product until the release of the iPhone back in 2007 that included a built-in music player. Apple discontinued the iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle in 2017 and is still selling the same iPod Touch since 2015. While no further details about the rumored iPod Touch have emerged, we’ll continue to update you if and when the device launches.
