I've got no problems at all with the switch to USB-C for as long as it improves on communication speeds, reliability and overall performance. Lighting has done right but advances require bold changes.

Wtf are you talking about. USB 3.1 Type C is faster in every way than lightning port. More power delivery, reversible, faster, more common.

This iPhone is looking more and more like the new Galaxy 8.

These rumors have been out for quite some time... Samsung is so dead set on doing things "First" that they rushed to implement this in the S8. Most likely, it'll be a buggier version just like everything else is on the initial roll out.

As if Google doesn't have 4 phones with USB c...

Sure. On iPhone 11, they will replace the USB-C port with the 30-pin dock connector, found on the original iPhone. Because it takes courage (tm). Oh, and they will re-introduce the headphone jack, introduce an IR port for exchanging files between phones, a microSD card slot and finally feature a built-in radio tuner. For those still wondering, it's called "courage. The courage to move on and do something new that betters all of us". Courage to re-invent the wheel.
