Rumors say 2018 iPhones may feature USB-Type C

Apple iPhone is one of the most desired smartphones on the market. Every year, thousands of people queue up in front of local Apple Stores and try to be the first to grab new iPhones. Last year, Apple moved away from its long-time tradition of launching two iPhone models. Instead, the company released three iPhones including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

While iPhone X’s sales performance fails to satisfy Apple, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are among the best-selling phones out there. iPhone X has been available out there for six months only, but we have started to hear rumors about the next generation iPhone.

In reality, there are a ton of rumors and reports regarding Apple’s 2018 iPhone models, hinting at the impressive features and changes coming into this year’s devices. Rumors say that this year’s iPhone models will feature wireless charging functionality, allowing users to charge up their device faster.

One of the most anticipated features in this year’s iPhone models lies in USB-Type C. In reality, Apple was previously rumored to add this new technology to its 2017 iPhone models. However, it was nowhere to be found at launch.

According to reliable sources, 2018 iPhone models will feature USB Type-C, meaning that you will get a USB-C-to-Lightning cable in the box. USB Type C is not something new out there, as it has been an essential part of Android-powered phones for years.

Apple has already baked USB Type C into its MacBook lineup for faster file transfer. However, the company has never adopted this new tech for its iPhone series. Last year, Apple finally added wireless charging feature to its iPhone lineup, which received a wide welcome from users worldwide.

According to sources, the adoption of USB-Type C may help users get up to 50% battery charged in about 30 minutes. However, rumors are just rumors, and you need to wait unit the new iPhones make their debut this fall.

This year’s iPhone models are rumored to come with three different screen sizes, including 5.8, 6.1, and 6.5 inches. If this is the case, this year will mark the biggest iPhone ever released to the public. A 6.1-inch device will target mid-range segment, while a 6.5-inch model will replace iPhone X in the premium section.

Speaking of features and hardware, all three devices will feature an edge-to-edge display and include support for a TrueDepth camera system and Face ID.
