Following Apple‘s previous teasers of the upcoming iOS 13 features, the tech giant has just leaked another upgrade arriving with the operating system. The first beta iteration of the iOS 13 comes with a new recovery mode screen for iPhones, replacing the previously used Lightning cable featured in iOS 12 for a USB-C icon and a MacBook visual.
Having previously stuck to its exclusive Apple products, the new USB-C feature could mark a pivotal change in Apple’s current business model. Raphaël Mouton reports that the new chord may mean faster iPhone charging, as well as increased compatibility with new MacBooks and PCs. iPads previously moved to USB-C last year and MacBooks using the cable, this means that iPhones will soon be brought into the connector as well.
As of yet there’s no official confirmation, but Apple will be releasing iOS 13 alongside its upcoming iPhone 11 in February. For more from the tech giant, don’t miss Apple’s upcoming Dark Mode feature.
