I've always thought it was pretty dumb that Apple doesn't sell a USB-C > Lightning cable. Ever since they released the rMB, it seems like an omission for a product I think there'd be a good amount of demand for. It's requiring a rMB owner to use an adapter to charge their flagship iPhone when on the road. Kind of a PITA for brand loyal owners. I think most of us can agree that USB-C will be coming to at least the MBP line whenever the next release does occur, some are saying March. It's also very likely we'll see at least one Apple computer this year include a TB3/USB-C combo port, given the compatibility with Skylake. The writing's on the wall that USB-C/TB3 ports are in Apple's future considering Apple themselves had a big hand in the finalization of the specification. It's even worth speculating that Apple may begin utilizing USB-C in other Apple products where it makes sense (iPad Pro 2?). Given all this info, it seems possible that Apple could make the jump to a USB-C > Lightning cable, including one in the iPhone 7 box in place of the traditional Lightning cable. This would obviously mean that the charging block would also have a USB-C female port. While it would be a big change, people could still use their existing lightning iPhone charging solutions without issue. No need to buy new cables for the office, the car, the nightstand. No need to buy new accessories. They'd simply be including a new USB-C variant in the new iPhone 7 box, use whichever you like. Me, personally, I'd like to see Apple to just get rid of lightning altogether ASAP in favor of an all USB-C future (USB-C > USB-C cables). I think it'd suck in the short term but would absolutely payoff in the next 5-10 years. All your friends, Android, WP, iPhone....all have the same cable! However, I think the likelihood of that particular change is next to zero, since: -People would lose their **** about Apple changing ports, again, so quickly -Lightning Headphones are just becoming a new product category which Apple stands behind -I genuinely think Apple enjoys having a proprietary cable for their devices, for a variety of different reasons, including pride, ecosystem lock-in, etc. Given all of this, do you think it's likely the iPhone 7 box will include both a USB-C > Lightning Cable and a USB-C charging block?
