Does iPhone 13 feature USB-C or Lightning port?

On Tuesday, Sep. 14, the four latest iPhones were finally unveiled, together with the refreshed 10.2-inch iPad, the new iPad Mini, and Apple Watch Series 7. For those who want to upgrade their phone, one frequently asked question is: does iPhone 13 feature USB-C or Lightning charging port? This is not only because Lightning cables tend to be more expensive than USB-C cables, but because that USB-C port enables you to connect much more accessories made for USB-C devices, such as USB hubs and memory card readers.

Despite the expectations, iPhone 13 still sticks with Lightning, just as its predecessors did during the past years. If you’re going to transfer data or charge your phone from different devices, you may need to use the USB‑C to Lightning cable packed in the box.

One possible reason why Apple is so slow in adopting USB-C can be that the company has been pursuing maturity rather than launching something new, seeing where it flies. After all, for over 1 billion active iPhone users, switching the charging port is not a small thing.

The good news is, Apple has been moving forward since 2016 when Mac adopted USB-C. The third-generation iPad Pro came with USB-C in 2018, and this year the new iPad Mini jumps on the bandwagon as well, leaving iPhone the only mobile device that lacks Lightning. Based on all these, you can expect a USB-C iPhone is not too far out now.
