Rumors of Apple's supposed interest in switching from proprietary connectors to USB have popped up multiple times over the years, despite the company's use of 30-pin Dock Connectors and 9-pin Lightning connectors to tightly control the accessory markets for its products.
Not only is USB Type-C a far more robust option than the current Lightning connector in terms of bandwidth but it will also help alleviate the woes of owning a litany of connectors and adapters that iPhone users now have to wrestle with. At least, that's what is being reported as Apple's plan for the iPhone models set to be released in 2019.
Oddly, the report doesn't go into specifics regarding whether USB-C will be used on both ends of the iPhone cable, or just the one that goes into the charging brick (or a computer). Those vendors claim that Apple's move to USB-C will cause other companies to shift as well, much as the adoption of USB-C in Apple's MacBook line has led to PCs from other manufacturers supporting the interface.
That's a odd thing to say, because Apple would actually be late to the party if it ends up switching to USB-C in 2019.
If you've been anxiously waiting for Apple to bring USB-C to its smartphones in some form, it looks like you'll have to replenish your patience once more.
