So, the iPhone will still feature a Lightning port, but the other end of the cable will be USB-C and the cable will take advantage of the faster charging spec available by using USB-C.

The USB-C connector will allow the users to connect MacBook and MacBook Pro with iPhone 8. (NASDAQ: CY) according to Kuo, who focuses his attention on Apple.
