I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the chances of the next iPhone having USB 3.0 and/or USB 3.1 support?

Considering there might even be a 256GB option too, transfer speeds are now to slow on 2.0.

I hope it's one area Apple improve for the 10th iPhone.

Lightning to USB-C cables already exist and my PC has a USB-C connection so well worth the added speed if possible.

0% chance.

The iPad Pro has USB 3 support (at least my 12.9" does, not sure about the 9"). If it's not in the 7, it should be coming soon.

I can see the Apple Lightning cable changing to USB-C connection for charging, etc. There's 0.0009% chance Apple will change to complete USB standard end-to-end any time in the next 2 years. Considering MacBook and Apple TV are USB-C exclusive, it indicates that's the direction they're moving.
