ROFL, AA! That cracked me up!

I was hoping to see a statement from Phil or Craig, absolutely denouncing the rumor.

But I'm pretty much in line with the author, especially with this bit:

USB-C is vastly superior to all other forms of USB, and it comes as no surprise that it’s taken over the finicky microUSB and less-versatile USB 3.1 ports on phones and PCs.

I honestly don't see any real advantage of USB-C on the iPhone. The 'one less cable' argument is pretty paltry, as far as I'm concerned. I've found the Lightning connector to fit and wear very well.

A bonus for me is how easy it is to connect in low light, darkness without looking, compared to USB-C.

I prefer USB-C over Type A connectors, though using it with cheap cables can be problematic. Benson Leung may have helped spur Amazon to get rid of bad cables (those that lack the 56K current limiting resistor).




When a good man is hurt,

Benson's reviews are terrific! Thanks for the input, Rammie.
