• Apple's 2019 iPhone won't ditch Lightning for USB-C: report

    5 monthes ago - By MobileSyrup

    While there might be at least some level of truth to the USB-C iPhone rumours that continue to circulate, it looks like the 2019 version of Apple's flagship smartphone won't be ditching lightning. All of Apple's 2019 iPhones will use the tech giant's proprietary Lightning port, according to Japanese publication Macotakara. Further, Apple is also set to include the same 5W charger and USB-A-to-Lightning cable in the box. This means that if you want to charge your iPhone faster, you'll still need to purchase either the 12W or 18W iPad charger separately. Apple's 2019 line of iPhones will...

    Apple's iPad Mini 5 expected to launch in the first half of 2019: report

    5 monthes ago - By MobileSyrup

    It looks like Apple plans to launch its upcoming, often-rumoured iPad Mini 5 in the first half of 2019, according to a new report from Taiwanese publication DigiTimes. However, the new version of Apple's smallest iPad will not be a full redesign of the tablet like some may have expected. Mac Otakara is reporting that the iPad Mini 5 will look nearly identical to the iPad Mini 4 , citing conversations the blog has had with various accessory makers. Mac Otakara goes on to say that the iPad Mini 5 will feature the same dimensions as the iPad Mini 4, including its 7.9-inch display, 6.1mm...

However, as we've explained before, if you are expecting big changes you shouldn't get your hopes up. Japanese website Macotakara claims that the design of the iPad mini 4 replacement will look essentially the same. Sources in the accessory business who are said to be familiar with the specifications told the site that the mini 5 will follow a similar build and look as before. They listed the measurements of the...

    New rumor says Apple's iPhone 11 won't get the major change we're all waiting for

    5 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    About a month ago, a rumor said that Apple might do the unthinkable with the iPhone 11 by replacing the Lightning port with a USB-C port, just like it did with the iPad Pro last year and just like the ports found on all of Apple's MacBook laptops these days. That does sound like a great idea and the unification of Apple's product lines something many of us have been waiting for, but a brand new report says that the iPhone 11 will stick to the same Lightning port that's been in use since 2012.

    New iPhones to stick with Lightning over USB-C, claims report

    5 monthes ago - By The Verge

    Apple's 2019 iPhone models will be equipped with a Lightning connector rather than a USB-C port, according to a report from Macotakara. Previous reports had claimed that Apple was testing “some versions” of this year's phone with a USB-C connector. Last year, Macotakara , which has connections to both the Asian supply chain and Asian accessory manufacturers, successfully predicted that the 2018 iPad Pro would drop Lightning in favor of USB-C.
    Macotakara 's report also claims that this year's phones will once again include Apple's standard 5W USB-A charger in the box with each phone. If...
