But with the recent release of the iPhone 14 Pro, there's another furor around Lightning connectors.
The earlier post included the following chart:
But I didn't pay much attention to the last row - Maximum transmission speed.
There's a 40 fold increase in transmission speed when using USB-C. FORTY FOLD!
And Thunderbolt is twice as fast as USB-C.
So what does iPhone 14 Pro have to do with this? 48-megapixel ProRAW photos - four times as many pixels as iPhone 13 models.
Full-resolution ProRAW photos taken with the iPhone 14 Pro can be close to 100MB per file.
I hope you're not in a hurry to offload your photos from your shiny new iPhone 14 Pro.
The good news is that there's lots of talk that next year's iPhone 15 Pro will have USB-C.
We can hope.
Here's a good recap of the issue from Lifewire (archive.org).
