    I should also start predicting new iPhones in the fall, and keep "adjusting" the dates until I can go "NAILED IT!!".

    Seriously, all these Apple websites need to do more than just click-bait with every damn guess by every damn person trying to make their twitter account seem relevant.

    Apple should slide the schedule so new phones available first week of September every year - all models immediately available after announcement.
    The next time you find yourself typing “Apple should”, you should just stop and do something else. 
    Wise words.

    I really hope the Pro models have USB-C like the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. Will make it easier to have just one cord. 
    It would really be nice to lose the USB 2 speed limits that Lightning enables - but it would not be nice to have to replace three Lightning alarm clocks a zillion cables.

    Problem is, USB-C makes for a lousy docking solution due to tight sleeve tolerances and clumsy blind mating - it's why USB-C docks aren't popular or available in large numbers. So if they did go USB-C, I think we can say good-bye to such niceties as docking alarm clocks.

    Another problem is at the other end: if the host end is USB-C, there just aren't a lot of USB-C hubs out there due to power requirements. Even Thunderbolt 3 docks have at most two USB-C outlets if you exclude the Thunderbolt 3 pass-through port.

    Sooner or later a change will happen; it's only a question about if that will be to wireless, USB-C, an upgraded lighting, or a bra new connector.

    A completely new connector seems very unlikely, and Apple has already starting moving everything to USB-C; so perhaps most docks will simply go with a wireless option, and USB-C will practically speaking be the "pro" connector for those that need either quicker charging or faster data transfers.
