Analyst: Apple won’t ditch Lightning ports for USB-C in the ‘iPhone 8’

There was a rumor this week that Apple will ditch the Lightning port for a USB-C port on the upcoming “iPhone 8.” I said it wouldn’t happen and apparently KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo agrees.

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — he says the Lightning port will remain on all of Apple’s three new iPhones coming later this year. Apple is expected to utilize “Type-C Power Delivery” technology in this year’s iPhones, the analyst adds.
