Current iPhones can already record videos with 4K resolution. Since the Lightning connector moves data from A to B much more slowly than USB-C, smartphone owners can have to wait a long time. Compared to Lightning, USB-C is about twenty times faster. A large video would be transferred to a PC within minutes.
The second factor behind the alleged change is said to be the demands of the US and the EU. These call for a uniform standard for smartphone connections. It’s not just about making things easier for consumers, but also for the environment. If there is only one standard, consumers would not have to get a new charging cable with every smartphone.
However, these are just rumors so far. In the end, the demands of the EU and the USA could really tip the scales to force Apple to take this step with the iPhone 14.
