What in the world does USB C have to do with making a phone “feel” like using Android? Nonsense. Please share your stats/source for the “many” who will delay their phone purchase. And enlighten us as to why an XS/XR is now a “bad purchase”. More nonsense. If Apple phases out Lightning in the next gen iPhones, it will be several years before Lightning accessories disappear, and unless Apple somehow locks them out of the ecosystem, Lightning devices and accessories will theoretically be viable for as long as the device lives.
