iPhone 12 programmed go contact number might be the last Apple device programmed go contact number with this iconic piece of programmed go contact number tech

Apple isn't quite programmed go contact number ready to drop the programmed go contact number Lightning port from its iPhones, programmed go contact number according programmed go contact number to one analyst programmed go contact number – programmed go contact number however the programmed go contact number iPhone programmed go contact number 12 looks programmed go contact number set to be programmed go contact number the last Apple handset to use the programmed go contact number proprietary connection.

Jon Prosser, programmed go contact number who has a programmed go contact number decent track programmed go contact number record when it programmed go contact number comes programmed go contact number to programmed go contact number Apple rumors, tweeted that the programmed go contact number iPhone 12 "absolutely" would not feature a USB-C programmed go contact number port – and if that's the programmed go contact number case then programmed go contact number the iPhone 12 will stick programmed go contact number with programmed go contact number Apple's arguably-outdated programmed go contact number Lightning tech.

It's not clear where programmed go contact number Prosser got this information programmed go contact number from – programmed go contact number whether from inside Apple itself, or its programmed go contact number supply programmed go contact number chain, or a case programmed go contact number or charging cable programmed go contact number manufacturer – but the conviction in programmed go contact number that programmed go contact number tweet programmed go contact number suggests it programmed go contact number could be from multiple sources.

In programmed go contact number January 2020 programmed go contact number European Parliament (EP) passed a resolution calling programmed go contact number for the introduction programmed go contact number of a single common charging programmed go contact number port programmed go contact number on all smartphones – programmed go contact number namely programmed go contact number USB-C the programmed go contact number standard programmed go contact number currently used by programmed go contact number most tech companies – programmed go contact number which suggested that Apple would programmed go contact number have to drop programmed go contact number its proprietary ports.

While that programmed go contact number resolution programmed go contact number isn't binding, the EP programmed go contact number issued a deadline programmed go contact number of programmed go contact number July 2020 for programmed go contact number companies to comply. If any programmed go contact number companies fail to comply – as programmed go contact number would programmed go contact number be programmed go contact number the case if Apple were to programmed go contact number release a programmed go contact number Lightning-equipped Phone 12 programmed go contact number in programmed go contact number September, which programmed go contact number is when we programmed go contact number expect to programmed go contact number see programmed go contact number the phone – the Parliament would programmed go contact number likely look programmed go contact number to pass legislation obliging them to fall programmed go contact number into line.

So it does seem programmed go contact number that programmed go contact number the iPhone 12 could be programmed go contact number the last programmed go contact number iPhone to pack a programmed go contact number Lightning port, with future iPhones and programmed go contact number iPads likely to use the faster standard programmed go contact number USB-C instead programmed go contact number – or, perhaps, programmed go contact number to go portless…

A portless iPhone 12?

Prosser ended his programmed go contact number tweet by saying 'Apple will programmed go contact number go programmed go contact number portless programmed go contact number before they go programmed go contact number USB-C' programmed go contact number and some programmed go contact number have programmed go contact number taken this to imply the iPhone programmed go contact number 12 will programmed go contact number be a portless device, programmed go contact number but this programmed go contact number is highly unlikely.

'Portless' would programmed go contact number mean a phone with programmed go contact number no programmed go contact number 3.5mm headphone jack and no USB-C or programmed go contact number Lightning port, with the device relying programmed go contact number on wireless programmed go contact number audio programmed go contact number transmission, wireless charging, and programmed go contact number wireless data transfer. It's programmed go contact number a futuristic programmed go contact number concept, programmed go contact number but any phones like programmed go contact number this right now, such programmed go contact number as programmed go contact number an un-named device shown off by Oppo programmed go contact number last year, are just that – programmed go contact number concepts.

Apple has programmed go contact number lost programmed go contact number its reputation for innovation in the programmed go contact number smartphone world, having programmed go contact number yet programmed go contact number to launch programmed go contact number a foldable or 5G phone, programmed go contact number and its phones all still programmed go contact number have flat screens and sizeable programmed go contact number notches, which most brands programmed go contact number have avoided on their 2020 flagships.

So programmed go contact number it programmed go contact number seems unlikely programmed go contact number the company would beat the competition to creating programmed go contact number a truly wireless programmed go contact number phone, especially given that consumers still programmed go contact number use wired headphones and charging programmed go contact number a programmed go contact number lot programmed go contact number – and Apple tends to follow programmed go contact number consumer demand programmed go contact number rather than lead it.

As for programmed go contact number Prosser's claim programmed go contact number that programmed go contact number "Apple will programmed go contact number go portless before they go programmed go contact number USB-C", that's likely as programmed go contact number much a programmed go contact number rhetorical programmed go contact number flourish as a serious prediction.

It's much more programmed go contact number likely the handset will use programmed go contact number a Lightning port, with future iPhones programmed go contact number using USB-C until a portless design programmed go contact number becomes feasible – Prosser's programmed go contact number declaration programmed go contact number notwithstanding. However this is all programmed go contact number based programmed go contact number on programmed go contact number rumor – what programmed go contact number this programmed go contact number space programmed go contact number for programmed go contact number further developments as we programmed go contact number count down to the programmed go contact number iPhone 12 launch.

No going notch-less, either

As well programmed go contact number as commenting programmed go contact number on programmed go contact number the connectivity of the iPhone 12, Prosser also programmed go contact number tweeted a sketch of the handset's notch. programmed go contact number According to Prosser, the programmed go contact number iPhone programmed go contact number 12 programmed go contact number will still programmed go contact number have programmed go contact number a notch, programmed go contact number although it'll be smaller than programmed go contact number the programmed go contact number one programmed go contact number on the iPhone programmed go contact number 11, and will still programmed go contact number house the Face programmed go contact number ID sensors and front-facing programmed go contact number camera.

Space would be saved because the programmed go contact number speaker, which was previously in the programmed go contact number notch, programmed go contact number would programmed go contact number be housed in a very programmed go contact number thing bezel at the top programmed go contact number of programmed go contact number the handset.

The notches on newer iPhones programmed go contact number have been a programmed go contact number source of programmed go contact number ridicule in programmed go contact number some quarters, given their large programmed go contact number size compared programmed go contact number to programmed go contact number the equivalents on other phones, and with some programmed go contact number flagships using a programmed go contact number less-obtrusive 'punch-hole' programmed go contact number design, so programmed go contact number it's good to see programmed go contact number Apple looking for ways to programmed go contact number shrink the notch – although according to programmed go contact number Prosser's sketch programmed go contact number it's still programmed go contact number fairly large.

Again, though, this is just programmed go contact number a leak, and we'll have programmed go contact number to wait for Apple to officially unveil the programmed go contact number phone to know for programmed go contact number sure.
