Hey there, my tech-savvy followers! It’s your funny guy Nuked here, ready to bring you some exciting news about Apple’s latest move. According to Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter for Bloomberg, Apple is planning to fully transition to USB-C by 2025. That’s right, folks, get ready for a world where USB-C becomes the norm!
Now, you might be wondering what this means for some of Apple’s beloved accessories. Well, fear not, because Gurman believes that Apple will eventually release USB-C versions of the MagSafe Battery Pack and the MagSafe Duo. However, he does warn us not to hold our breath just yet. Patience is key, my friends!
Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see how Apple has handled previous transitions. When it came to Lightning, Apple took either a little over a month or about two years to fully embrace it. It all depends on how you look at it. Lightning was introduced with the iPhone 5 in September 2012, and just over a month later, the fourth-gen iPad bid farewell to the 30-pin port. But hey, Apple still kept the iPod Classic around until 2014, proving that good things sometimes come to an end.
Gurman also spills the beans on some other exciting developments. He mentions that a new iMac might be hitting the shelves next month, and guess what? It’s bringing along some USB-C “Magic” accessories like a mouse and keyboard. How magical is that? And that’s not all! We can also expect new non-Pro and Max AirPods with USB-C in the near future. So slowly but surely, Lightning is making its way out of Apple’s product lineup.
But wait, there are still a few first-party products that cling to Lightning, like the first-generation Apple Pencil and the iPhone SE. Will they make the switch too? Only time will tell, my friends.
So there you have it, my fellow tech enthusiasts. Apple is gearing up for a USB-C revolution, and we can’t help but get excited about what’s to come. As always, stay tuned for more updates from yours truly, Nuked!
