In a pair of tweets, Kuo said Apple was going to make the change in 2023 basing this claim on an indeterminate survey presumably of components to get a lot of his information for predictions about future Apple products. Kuo said that adopting USB-C could improve iPhone’s transfer and charging speed in hardware designs but the final spec details still depend on IOS support.

Pressure to switch has built from policymakers too with the EU still considering a proposal that would make USB-C ports compulsory on smartphones and other electronics which the intention of reducing e-waste by standardizing chargers and data cables. And yet Apple has always seemed particularly resistant to the idea.

And Kuo himself predicted just last year that isn’t considering USB-C ports.
