Apple to Replace Lightning With USB-C for New iPad Pros [Report]

Apple is planning to equip its new iPad Pros with USB-C, replacing Lightning, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. It's also believed the iPad Pro will get a new unibody charger.

In addition to Face ID support, we expect the new iPad Pro models' main upgrade to include replacing Lightning with a USB-C interface and bundling with a new unibody design 18W power adapter, which cancels the removable plug design…

Kuo notes that the next generation 2018 iPhones are expected to keep the Lightning connector and be bundled with the usual 5W power adapter.

Apple will unveil its new iPhones wednesday at a 'Gather round' held in the Steve Jobs Theater. It's uncertain if the new iPad Pros will be unveiled at the same event or a second event later this fall.

USB-C is the connector used by every other manufacturer out there, lightning is a proprietary Apple connector. If they do change, it's only due to rumblings the EU is going to force it as a way to have a universal charging standard. All chargers would then work for any device...I suspect there have been a number of complaints either by consumers or competitors about Apple using their own. If you happen to lose your charger/cable, Apple's are always much more expensive and not as readily available.
