So we are coming to that time again when Apple transitions to a new connector. In 2022, I doubt anyone misses the 30-pin connector that was last used on the iPod Touch 4th Gen (2010), iPhone 4S (2011) and iPad 3rd Gen (2012).
Apple products that are yet to transition to USB-C include all iPhones, all AirPods cases, the iPad, Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock, MagSafe Battery Pack, MagSafe Duo Charger, Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Keyboard and the Apple TV Siri Remote.
What are people’s thoughts about moving away from Lightning? Suggestions that the 2022 iPad will move to USB-C, and iPhones will probably follow suit by 2024 at the latest. I have an iPhone XS (2018) and each year recently I have held off upgrading for one reason or another. I’m in two minds now whether I want to buy another iPhone that does not have USB-C. I would also like to buy a MagSafe Battery Pack so I can finally say goodbye to my Jackery USB-A to lightning power bank that I carry with me.
