Yes, if you're a fanboy. The rest of you can hold on
I only have one USBC device, my laptop. Everything else is Lightning. All my wife's kit is Lightning.
I'm sure I'm not the only one! Sure, ultra techie types will probably have several USB C devices, but I bet millions do not AND millions probably dont even know what a USBC connector looks like!
But sure, Lightning is out of date and slow. But so is iphone 15. Only 15p & pm are faster.
