    Yep, I didn't believe those rumors at all. Welcome to iOS, USB-C. Seems promising, especially attaching displays.

    They really had no choice. They should have been courageous and done the same thing for the XS devices.

    And you believe it will work? Highly doubtful.

    100% agree. Xs's and Xr should have been USB-C as well.

    There was no reason to believe otherwise. USB-C makes sense on a Pro device.

    iPhone has no use for USB-C.

    Other than being a standardized connector instead of a uselessly proprietary one....

    Note uselessly: it allows Apple to charge a license fee to people who want to make accessories using the port. And it means that those accessories for your iPhone won't work with other manufacturers' phones, making switching more hassle.

    That's why even though it would make sense otherwise to standardise on USB-C across the ranges, I still wonder whether they will actually do it.

    Heartbreaking that there is no mouse/trackpad support. That will help sales of Chrome book and Surface Pro for sure! If by any chance a mouse would work, I would buy the new iPad immediately.

    Very happy about this, new iPhones will hopefully have it next year and everything I use will finally be the same.

    It will be a short term pain, but a good long term change. I'm really happy they are taking advantage of it for connectivity to devices including external displays. This is a very welcomed and unexpected move by Apple ‘Mr. Proprietary'.

    Is that possible ? Looks like the Apple USB-C to HDMI etc. adapters are NOT compatible with iPad Pro 2018. Was wondering how to connect an iPad Pro to e.g. a TV or projector.

    I like USB-C, but they need to detail exactly what new capabilities this brings. Seems there is a lot of confusion already.

    I have seen where someone jerry-rigged to do it on the old ones. I do have a WD Wireless Pro that I need to get replaced - it does not hold a charge for very long.
