This coming Tuesday the Apple September Keynote will finally be held . So many months of waiting, rumors, analysis and speculation will be reduced to about two hours in which we will see, if everything goes as planned, the Apple Watch Series 9 , the second generation Apple Watch Ultra , some AirPods Pro 2 with USB port -C and the iPhone 15 .
One of the main novelties of the iPhone 15 will, without a doubt, be the USB-C port that they will include to the detriment of a Lightning that will pass away soon. In fact, it seems that it will do so much faster than some of us thought . At least, according to Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman.
Rest in Peace: Lightning
In yesterday’s episode of the MacRumors podcast , to which Gurman attended as a guest, he explained that there is already a transition to apple USB C that puts an end to the Lightning era that has given us such good times. Everything ends up coming, and everything has its end. We knew that one day it would end up happening, and it seems that this Tuesday will be the beginning of the end of the port that since 2012 has accompanied the best-selling smartphone in history.
The first and most obvious thing will be that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro will be announced this Tuesday with USB-C. They will be accompanied by the second generation AirPods Pro, and the rest of the AirPods will follow next year. There will also be a MagSafe Duo with USB-C, and a new MagSafe battery with the port changed . So will the now discontinued Apple Watch charging dock.
Apple USB C transition
Those from Cupertino will also change the cables they offer to give more prominence to USB-C, although Gurman adds that he does not expect new accessories per se , but rather updated versions of existing devices . It won’t take long to find out.
