2019 iPhones Said to Keep Lightning Connector With Same Old 5W Charger and EarPods in Box

......While it was recently reported that Apple has at least considered switching to USB-C on the iPhone, Japanese blog Mac Otakara believes that 2019 models will stick with the Lightning connector as a cost-saving measure.

Based on its conversations with various accessory manufacturers, the blog also predicts that 2019 iPhones will continue to be bundled with the same old 5W power adapter, forcing customers to spend extra on a faster charger like the 18W USB-C version that ships with the latest iPad Pro models.

Likewise, the blog predicts that 2019 iPhones will continue to ship with a Lightning to USB-A cable and Lightning-based EarPods.



I'm a genie in a bottle......you gotta' rub me....the right way.......?!

My family is on the 4 (or 5!) year replacement cycle for our phones.

USB-C will be nice whenever Apple gets around to the switch.
