There are reports that the iPhone will use a USB-C connector next year

Two days ago, the Japanese media MAC Appraisal pointed out that the iPad Air 4 that will be launched later this year will replace the Lightning connector and use the USB-C connector. And now the Taiwan Media Economic Daily pointed out that next year's iPhone will also use USB-C, but this news is contrary to the opinions of other sources.

The Economic Daily said that the European Union may formulate a new policy next month, legislation will make Apple’s device connectors uniformly changed to USB-C, reducing waste of resources, and Apple will also be forced to abandon Lightning next year under pressure from the European Union. Switch to USB-C connector.

This is not the first time Apple has reported that USB-C will be introduced to the iPhone, but many people including Jon Prosser do not agree with this statement. Instead, they believe that the next step of the iPhone after replacing the Lightning connector is "No connector design".
