Hope the EU ruling finally kills that thing. So damn annoying they have stuck to that standard.
I'm all for one standard for everything but to me the lightning connector itself seems more solid than usb-c disregarding how cheaply apple makes the cables. The spring contacts being inside the phone and not he cable like with usb-c suggests otherwise but i have several lightning devices here with the same cable over 5 years old without a problem so idk.
I don’t care all that much either way but it’s a bit annoying that I now have Apple mobile products with both lightning and USB-C (iPad Pro).
What good karma.
Better karma: no apple devices, ever! (And no MS software either)
@Riotvan The downside is that iPhone jacks die. People upgrade so often that they don't know this. But I had to scrap my 5.5-year-old iPhone SE (2016) because charging became very undependable. I replaced it with the 13 Mini, but I had rather have smaller phone.
@Claritas my 7plus of a similar age still works fine so does a 10 year old ipad air. My newer ipad pro has usb-c which feels much more flimsy. Am up for a new phone since this one is getting slow and the battery is toast, if the new 14 still has lighting i wouldn't mind it. Only use it for charging or dongle.
