KGI: Apple's Keeping Lightning Port On 'iPhone 8,' Other New Models

KGI      Apple's     Keeping     Lightning     Port     On     'iPhone     8,'      Other     New     Models

Today, respected KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told MacRumors Apple will not discontinue the Lightning port, putting the USB-C rumours to rest. But all is not lost.

Kuo said all of the new iPhones released in 2017 will feature "Type-C Power Delivery" technology as well as adopt power management from Texas Instruments and power delivery chips from Cypress. The detailed article claimed Apple will effectively abandon its Lightning connector. Kuo also believes the high-speed data transmission on USB-C is still only "niche" when it comes to the iPhone. Guess I shouldn't be too surprised. Apple will dump the LCD panels present in iPhone 7, for the new flagship models. It will come with a power cord for charging and connect to other peripheral devices.

Veteran D Streit traded twice, lands with Penguins
Weal is eligible to play in the playoffs for the minor league side since he was sent down before the end of the trade deadline. Streit has compiled five goals and 16 assists in 49 games while averaging over 19 minutes of ice time per contest.

The report also claims that this possible move from Apple could cause a lot of complaints from most iPhone users who own accessories like headphones that can only be connected with the Lightning jack. This brings some of the power benefits of a USB-C port, "Type C Power Delivery", without changing the physical connector.

Because of the rumors that Apple would launch the iPhone 8 with killer features in September, experts are warning consumers not to buy the current iPhone 7. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro includes a fast charging feature that works when you plug a USB-C to Lightning cable into an Apple 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C power adapter. And with the USB-C connection provided by a Lightning port, a better listening experience with wired headphones will be provided as there's no longer a headphone jack on the iPhone and USB-C provides pretty nice sound output.

Snapchat stock finishes up 44% on first day
The company's IPO ETF recently hit a 52-week high, and based on its market valuation, Snap will be a candidate for inclusion. It is now 39% down on its offer price - its user growth and other metrics consistently proving disappointing for investors.

With an Edge to Edge display, the iPhone 8 will be similar in size like the 4.7 inch iPhone. The launch of the iPhone 5 in 2012 nearly made the connector useless were it not for adapters sold that still made it possible to use the connector.
