Not only would USB-C support faster wired charging, but it would also fix the dongle issues that you might be having when it comes to connecting an iPhone to a new MacBook or just about anything else.

While there might be at least some level of truth to the USB-C iPhone rumours that continue to circulate, it looks like the 2019 version of Apple's flagship smartphone won't be ditching lightning. According to the report by Macotakara, Apple will stick with Lightning port for 2019 iPhones. Further, Apple is also set to include the same 5W charger and USB-A-to-Lightning cable in the box.

Nonetheless, the choice to keep the Lightning port on the iPhone is especially baffling when you consider how almost every current generation Apple device, from the latest to the Macbook and Macbook Pro, swapped out its old ports to replace with USB-C.

The iPad Pro made the switch to USB-C because Apple is trying to position the tablet as a work device, and productivity-focused accessories use USB-C connectors for a myriad of reasons.

This latest news on Apple passing on USB-C for the iPhone is in contrast with an from last summer when supply-side sources were claiming the USB-C ports were on the way for Apple's 2019 iPhone offering.

Until then though, plugging the iPhone into one of Apple's more recently released USB-C MacBooks remains a frustrating experience that requires an additional USB-C-to-Lightning cable.

Instead, Apple is said to be sticking with Lightning in its next batch of iPhones, which we expect to be revealed in September.
