Not happening. Lighting is still very much an integral part of Of the iOS ecosystem with the iPhone, iPad and Airpods. Is it possible in the mere future? Yes, but it won’t be for the iPhone 2018 line up and I think the lighting port will remain through 2019. I think some don’t understand the importance in the iOS ecosystem and it locks the user in and the amount of revenue its produced for this company. And I’m Fully aware of the abandoned 30 pin connector, but the lightning port doesn’t have any signs of being abandoned at this point in time.

London, England.
I don’t think they’ll be ditching Lightning any time soon, but I do think the cable included in this year’s iPhones will be Lightning to USB-C.
