Apple is killing the charging plug on its highest-end phones by 2021, top analyst predicts

Apple will launch an iPhone in 2021 that doesn’t include a Lightning connector, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF Securities.The company would only remove the Lightning port from the highest-end iPhone, creating a “completely wireless experience,” Kuo wrote in a note to clients on Thursday.Speculation has been building for several years that Apple plans to remove the Lightning connector in favor of other charging technology.

Apple could ditch the Lightning connector on the highest-end versions of the iPhone in 2021, meaning the devices will require wireless charging, according to a report on Thursday from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at TF Securities.

The removal of the Lightning cable, along with other differentiating updates, will boost shipment and the average selling price (ASP) of the top iPhone models, Kuo wrote. Without the connector, the top tier iPhone would provide a “completely wireless experience,” Kuo said.

Speculation has been building for several years that Apple plans to remove the Lightning cable. As far back as 2017, Kuo predicted that Apple would discard the Lightning connector in favor of the USB Type-C connector, which is widely used across the industry.

However, Apple has continued to include Lightning ports in the latest iPhone models. Apple’s new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max models, which were announced in September, all have Lightning ports.

Apple has started to include the USB-C connector in some products. The new iPhones support Apple’s fast-charger, which promises to deliver up to a 50% charge in 30 minutes. The charger uses USB-C and requires iPhone users to buy a specific cable that goes from the Lightning connector to USB-C ports.

Interesting. But by 2021 Apple probably could include the $160 AirPods with a new iPhone, since costs will have come down substantially by then and they'll already be shipping the AirPods Pro 2, I'm sure.

That would be a nice selling point for a new iPhone to get AirPods for free with it.

Citi lifts AAPL estimates on holiday demand
By: Brandy Betz, SA News Editor, Dec. 5, 2019 9:38 AM ET

Citi analyst Jim Suva maintains a Buy rating on Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL)
and raises the target from $250 to $300.

The analyst "materially" increases his earnings estimates, saying he
believes "this Christmas is different" for the tech giant.

Suva: "This year Apple is not facing supply yield production constraints
nor a staggered iPhone product launch."

The firm's research shows strong Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales
for the AirPods and Apple Watch 3 Series.

For Q1, Suva expects $89.5B in revenue (consensus: $87.9B)
and $4.58 EPS (consensus: $4.51).

The company has a Bullish average Sell Side rating.
