The internet was filled with rumors and speculations when Apple announced that it started developing iPhone X. Apple promised that iPhone X will ship with an innovative design and many new features which caused people to start theorizing about iPhone X even more. Truth be told, Apple did deliver on its promise because iPhone X is its most innovative device yet, but it looks like the Cupertino tech giant is not done innovative iPhone X.
Removing the Lighting Connector
One of the most reoccurring rumors about iPhone X was saying that Apple is planning to remove the lighting connector. This rumor started being plausible since a prototype leak showed that there is a variant of iPhone X which doesn’t feature a lighting connector. However, Apple decided to keep the classic feature, but this might not be the case for the next generation iPhone X.
If there’s something we all know about Apple, then it must be the fact that Apple loves to innovate everything! Apple has taken lots of risky decisions in the past such as removing the classic 3.5mm auxiliary port only for the sake of innovative. Therefore, we think it’s safe to say that Apple is willing to remove the lightning connector on the next generation iPhone X.
As we all know, the lightning connector is the port used to charge iPhones. This means that Apple is planning to bundle all upcoming iPhone X models with wireless charging pads so that iPhone owner will not have to rely on the lighting connector.
Even though Apple is highly likely to remove the lightning connector on the upcoming iPhone X model, we think that the Cupertino based tech giant is not going to do that. The current iPhone X already has problems when it comes to connecting with other devices for purposes such as data sharing or syncing information and removing the lighting connector is not going to make that possible anymore.
Not just that, but an iPhone X without a lighting connector will not be able to connect with lots of peripherals such as docks, battery cases, adapters, power banks, game controllers, wired headphones, audio cables and many more.
Additionally, if Apple does decide to remove the lighting connector, Apple is probably going to develop a special update for iTunes which will make it possible for iPhone X to connect with it via Wi-Fi.
