    Why isn't there a lightning to USB-C charging & data transfer cable? Ones that are MFi certified will be even better

    As waw74 said, there is an official cable. It is not currently standard with iOS products however expect that to happen in the next 1 - 2 years.

    So I guess the new iPhones will ship with these USB-C to Lightning cable just like the iPad Pro

    iPad pros ship with the regular USB cable, even though they support USB3.

    Yeah probably with the major redesigned iPhone next year. USB C will be more established in Macs and overall so it would be a suitable time. It could always happen this year but that would probably be a step too far after making people switch to lightning/Bluetooth headphones.

    Lightning earphones are such a terrible idea... You won't be able to plug the earphones to your Macbook

    Yeah I know I think removing the headphone jack is a step too far there is no reason to do it. I don't think Apple actually want to do it they just feel they have to get rid of it due to the size of the port. Therefore they'll likely push wireless headphones due to compatibility.
