Currently, iPhone users need a lightning cable to charge their phones. It was a switch apple made six years ago. It’s a charging cable that costs around $20. That’s $20 you can kiss goodbye if Apple makes the chargers obsolete.

A new industry report says Apple could be switching to USBC chargers for iPhones. The company has already made the move for its iPad Pro.

The change has its critics, with many users suspecting it’s a company plan to make more money.

There will be benefits, as the USBC should charge your device faster. It is also more universal.
