Apple may be considering a move to the USB-C format over its proprietary lightning port. The news comes via a Bloomberg report that suggests the move could be made as early as 2023 with that year's newest iPhone models.

The only Apple products currently using lightning chargers are Airpods, Apple TV remote, the MagSafe battery pack, the MagSafe Duo charger, and the iPhone.

At the same time, Apple has already switched to USB-C with the iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and Macs. Both the iPhone and Apple Watch use USB-C for their power bricks.

The Bloomberg report claims that «a key reason» for Apple making the switch to USB-C is because of the European Union's decision approved by a majority vote.
