A recent report claimed that the iPhone 14’s Lightning port isn’t being replaced by USB-C, but Apple will increase the transfer speeds on the Pro models. The same story said Apple is getting closer to launching a portless iPhone, with MagSafe reportedly playing a role in handling data transfers on the device. On the verge of that report, news from the European Union dropped that made the USB-C iPhone seem even more inevitable.
The EU is getting closer to mandating a universal charger from every smartphone maker, which obviously includes Apple. The iPhone maker is the only holdout in the business, as every other brand has already switched to the USB-C standard.
