Apple has gained the top spot in the consumer’s electronics category with the release of the iPhone devices. Over time, the handset has gained popularity by its user-friendly interface and access to third-party apps. A few years back, when Steve Jobs joined the Creator in heaven, the iPhone transformed into something nobody expected: now bigger and bolder. The thin design and the rounded edges gave it a sexier look and the updates have greatly stabilized. Now here comes the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 brought the most daring update in the Apple iPhone history: they brought wireless to a whole new level by applying it on the lightning cable.

The audio jack has been removed; the lightning port shifted to a magnetic type wherein an adaptor is required to charge the device. It minimizes the trouble of having frequent broken charger tips and lesser expenses. In a report by the Wall Street Journal, rumors of the upcoming iPhone have leaked. It stated that the latest iPhone would feature a “USB-C port for the power cord and other peripheral devices instead of the company’s original Lightning connector.”

Ming-Chi Kuo is a Securities Analyst for KGI Company. This company is a financial services group in the Asia-Pacific region. He works by gathering intelligence from his contacts in Apple’s supply chain and translates it for KGI research. With this issue at hand, he stated otherwise about removing the lightning port.

His words were, “All three iPhones rumored to be launched in 2017 will retain Lightning connectors with the addition of USB-C Power Delivery for faster charging, including an all-new OLED model with a larger L-shaped battery and updated 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models”. This means that the new USB type-C is a power cord that can be plugged into the latest MacBook Pro. This is the best concept yet for the upcoming iPhone 8. Dropping the lightning port is, I think, far from reality as Apple recently invested in a UAC connector and gained copyright to the lightning concept. UAC means Ultra Accessory Connector (UAC) which is going to be used as an intermediary in headphone wires, splitting them in half so that the top part can be universal, and the bottom can either be a Lightning, USB-C, USB-A, or a regular old 3.5mm analog plug.

This is a turning point for the soon-to-be design of iPhone. All those dongles required to connect yourself to the handset seem quite a handful; less can be the best alternative for it. Many are excited for what Apple has in store for the people for the iPhone 8. I don’t know what Apple has that makes it so popular. The brand has created a name for itself that equals to a well-built handset. The past models have gained a positive response. The demand has certainly exceeded and production is at peak. The hype is building up. The newest trend has certainly been in the brand.
