It’s possible that all of Apple’s devices will be powered by USB-C in the near future. However, this would be a good move in the long run, unifying Apple’s perplexing array of cords. What are some of the most frequently asked questions about the Lightning connector? The Lightning connection is Apple’s only choice for iPhones at this time. Some iPads have Lightning connectors, while others have USB-C connectors. Lightning has never been a feature of Mac computers, instead relying on USB and Firewire connectors.
With the Lightning connector, Apple introduced a new, more convenient way to connect mobile devices to computers and other electronic devices. It doesn’t matter which way a Lightning cable is plugged in; it still functions. The micro-USB connectors of that era did not have this issue at the time After a while, USB-C was launched, which had the same forgiving plug design as Lightning, but at a faster transmission rate.
According to recent reports, Apple’s 2023 iPhone will employ USB-C like the majority of the current iPad models. The MagSafe Battery Pack and AirPods, among other related devices, are likely to be phased out if this happens. Cleansing up the whole product line simultaneously would benefit from iPhone technology’s scalability. A USB-C port might be added to the entry-level iPad and Magic Keyboard, as well In a recent tweet, Apple expert Ming Chi-Kuo made a similar claim. The port-less iPhone of the future is definitely coming, but the technology is not yet ready.
It's expected to see existing USB-C-related suppliers of Apple's ecosystem (e.g., IC controller, connector) become the market's focus in the next 1-2 years, thanks to vast orders from iPhones and accessories' adoption of USB-C ports.

Apple has long argued that the Lightning connector is preferable than micro-USB since it is proprietary. The iPad Pro, which debuted in 2018, is the first tablet to use USB-C, as MacBooks did in 2015. This indicates that Apple is aware of the major benefits of USB-C for its most capable products. Owners of iPhones will appreciate USB-quicker C’s transfer rates and wider range of peripherals. If you have a lot of USB-C gadgets, it would be great if you could share a cable and a charger.
