Apple is testing iPhones with USB-C ports instead of Lightning ports. However, don’t expect to see it in this year’s iPhone range, as the transition won’t take place until “at the earliest” 2023. Apple would switch to USB-C in the second half of 2023, when the iPhone lineup for that year is expected to be announced.

Rumors have also swirled about Apple developing a portless iPhone, and Gurman says that Apple has “worked on iPhones without any charging port” in “recent years.” But his report Friday doesn’t suggest a portless iPhone will be available anytime soon.
The switch would be significant, though not entirely unexpected. Apple has already switched to USB-C for the iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad Mini. In September, the EU proposed legislation requiring various gadgets, including smartphones, to integrate USB-C connectors; this legislation was “a fundamental motivation” for Apple’s decision to examine the standard. There are also technical benefits to moving to USB-C, which is capable of faster transfer speeds than Lightning.
