iOS 13 Release Date, New Features: Beta Confirms Switch to USB-C Port on iPhone 11?

If there is one common request among many iPhone fans and users, it is that Apple should replace the Lightning port with USB-C. And that might be coming true this year with iOS 13 and the new lineup of iPhones for 2019.

The first beta of iOS 13 has already been released. Unsurprisingly, it is packed with some hidden details that Apple decided not to disclose at its recently held Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this month.

One person who has access to the iOS 13 Beta 1 shared an image from the software update. It appears to be an illustration of a cable to be plugged into a MacBook. In the previous leaks of datamined images from iOS updates, Apple has very accurate animations. In this case, the cable highly resembles a USB-C and not a Lightning cable.

The end of the Lightning cable has more round edges, whereas the USB-C cable has more pointy or sharp edges. So avid tech fans would easily recognize the difference even in black and white illustrations. This information coming from an iOS 13 update just adds to the many rumors that Apple has been planning to ditch the Lightning port and cable for the USB-C.

Considering that Apple has already done this switch on the latest iPad Pro, this iOS 13 just makes sense. However, fans should still take this with a pinch of salt until Apple officially confirms (or denies) this report.

With more iOS 13 beta updates coming in the next few months, fans can expect more of this kind of leaks. Aside from the USB-C switch, it is also heavily rumored that Apple will equip the iPhone 11 with a three-lens camera.

Meanwhile, Apple has already put to rest several rumors about iOS 13 at the WWDC. For one, iOS fans can now officially anticipate a system-wide dark mode. The software update’s full version is expected to arrive in fall.
