Tomorrow Apple will announce some product updates for iPhone, iPad, and perhaps Mac.
The following is some unsubstantiated speculation:
- USB-C will be announced as the standard connector on all Apple devices.
- Macs be able charge iPads and iPhone via USB-C and vice versa.
- Macs will also be able to harness the GPUs of iPads and iPhones using the USB-C connection: eGPU to go!
Now, in all reality I think they’ll hang onto lightning a little more until USB-C saturation is higher… then they’ll opt for USB-C2 😂. The eGPU idea is DOA I’m sure due to thermal issues and battery life of the iDevices. Anyway, just in case it happens: I told you so! ;)
