The company is also working on an adapter that will let future USB-C iPhones use accessories designed for the Lightning connector.

Earlier Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a May 11 tweet that USB-C “could land on the iPhone 15 in 2023” with the tech giant gradually shifting over to USB-C on many of its products.
