All-OLED & USB-C
Most modern flagships sport OLED displays and USB-C, but Apple is still keeping LCD displays and its Lightning connector around. Despite older rumors to the contrary, this year’s iPhone XR successor may also be LCD-based. And the entire 2019 iPhone lineup could also retain Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector.
The rumors aren’t unanimous about Apple ditching LCD or Lightning this year. Many reports hint that Apple will switch to an all-OLED iPhone lineup by 2020. Similarly, Apple has already laid the groundwork for a switch to USB-C with its Mac and iPad lineups. And there are reports that Apple is currently testing USB-C iPhones. If it doesn’t switch this year, there’s a strong case that it may by 2020.
