Apple is well known for its own ways to go – anyone who has ever forgotten his iphone charger and wanted to borrow a cable from a friend with an Android device knows what the talk is about. Now, there are rumors, according to which Apple, for its anniversary smartphone, the iphone 8, could replace the Lightning connection against a port for USB type-C. This would obviously be a very unusual move for Apple, so these rumors are to be enjoyed with caution. The same source has confirmed that the iphone 8 will use an OLED screen and replace the home button directly on the display against a “function area”.
The Apple iphone 8 is expected to appear as a high-end version in addition to the new iphone 7s and 7s plus. With the iphone 8, Apple is primarily celebrating the tenth anniversary of its smartphone brand, and is, therefore, providing the most loyal fans with a special device at the premium price. In the room, there is also an almost frameless display, whereby the screen with 5.8 inches diagonal still allows a housing that is no larger than that of other models with 4.7 inches.
If Apple were to actually replace lightning against USB Type-C, the iphone 8 would be the first Apple smartphone without a proprietary connection. Lightning has been used since the 2012 iphone 5. Previously, the manufacturer from Cupertino used a different, proprietary connection with 30 pins. If the rumours are true, we will learn in the course of the year 2017. His new iphones are likely to announce Apple in the fall.
