The Death of Apple’s Lightning Cord is Finally Here

Originally aired on September 12, 2023

Apple has announced the discontinuation of its lightning cord iPhone charger, and instead introduced the use of USBC. This move comes as part of Apple’s event on September 12th, where they also unveiled the Apple Watch Ultra 2, their first carbon neutral product, and the highly anticipated iPhone 15. While the iPhone 15 offers various features such as Dynamic Island, a two times telephoto option, and the action button, the most significant update is the replacement of the lightning port with a USBC charging port. This transition was influenced by the European Union’s requirement for smartphones to be compatible with USBC, aiming to reduce electronic waste. Many Apple users are excited about the convenience of the new cable.
