IPhone 8 Will Fast Charge via Lightning, Not USB-C

KGI Apple's Keeping Lightning Port On 'iPhone 8,' Other New Models

Apple analyst Tim Bajarin told Mashable that he feels the move is inevitable saying, 'I have no doubt they will eventually unify all connectors around USB-C.

In terms of an iPhone 8 (iPhone X, iPhone 10th Anniversary) release date, expect the major launch of Apple's flagship to come in September.

KGI says that there are two reasons why Apple is holding back on switching to USB-C: MFi royalties from the iOS accessory ecosystem, and form factor.

He's signed through next season at a salary-cap hit of $5 million and had to waive his no-movement clause to approve the trade. They are trying to become the first National Hockey League team to win back-to-back titles since the Red Wings in 1997-98.

The analyst said in a research note that all three of this year's new iPhone models will probably feature fast charging via "Type-C Power Delivery".

Another example is the 30-pin connector that matched the iPod's which was wider than the Lightning port used by iPhones now.

Instead, the new device (expected in September) might have a USB-C port - which would mean users would have to buy new chargers, docks and connectors, according to Wall Street Journal.

The iPhone 8 may also ditch the traditional home button per the publication's anonymous sources. In order to achieve that goal, we think Apple will adopt TI's power management and Cypress's Power Delivery chip solutions for the new iPhone models. Apple will use a "2-cell L-shaped" battery pack to enable more efficient charging than the flat cells commonly found in phones.

USB-C (v3.1), unlike the larger, rectangular USB-A ports that are so common among devices today, is capable of providing faster data syncing capabilities. Now, however, Ming-Chi Kuo has contested that report.

So, if Apple does switch to a USB Type-C iPhone cable (but retains the lightning connector for the phone), you will be able to plug the new iPhone into the latest MacBook Pro. The Lightning connector was launched with the iPhone 5 in 2012. It also allows your devices to charge.
