(WSVN) - Just when we all switched charging cables in order to plug-in our new iPhone 7s, Apple has thrown us a curve ball — the company is reportedly changing their charging cable for a third time.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple will ditch the Lightning connector on the upcoming iPhone 8 in favor of the industry’s standard USB Type-C connector.
The new charging cable, which is expected to be released in September, will reportedly come with a curved iPhone that lacks a physical home button, the Journal reported.
Although the switch may sound like a nuisance to some, switching to a USB-C charger comes with a perk. Since it is the industry standard, meaning it is already being used by Samsung, HTC, and Microsoft, iPhone users will be able swap charging cables with even their Android-using co-worker.
Solidarity, at last!
