iPhone 8 rumors: Apple makes a cut you're going to hate

iPhone 8 rumors: Apple makes a cut you're going to hate

So with all the rumors circulating around, what do we know so far about Apple's next iPhone?

Ferrari red, iPhone X, three different versions, edgeless screen, new form factor, IP68 waterproofing, integrated virtual home button, wireless charging, display embedded fingerprint scanner and a 3D scanning selfie camera.

Whew! With the iPhone 8's impending release just six months away, leaks and rumors about its "ground-breaking" features are understandably intensifying.

Now you may like most of the "revolutionary" features that the next iPhone are rumored to have but think again -  you may or may not like this latest rumored change.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the next iPhone might ditch the Lightning connector in favor of a USB-C port.

So after removing the headphone jack on the iPhone 7, is Apple "courageous" enough to remove the Lightning port as well?

If it's true, this will be a big surprise move for Apple since the Lightning port was touted as its connector of choice to replace the "ancient" headphone jack. Ditching it in favor of USB-C will surely be another controversial decision that "Lightning dongle bandwagon" fans may find disheartening.

Switching to the USB-C standard makes sense for Apple, though. The company already replaced older USB ports and other connectors with USB-C in the latest MacBooks. This can lead to a standardization of all the ports for all future Apple gadgets. Additionally, USB-C is also fast becoming the standard for current and upcoming Android smartphones.
