The Next iPhone Will Have a Curved Screen

I feel almost silly linking to this given that it one big part (below) has seemingly already been debunked. But, for discussion's sake, here's what Takashi Mochizuki says is coming in the upcoming iPhone:

They said Apple would introduce other updates including a USB-C port for the power cord and other peripheral devices, instead of the company’s original Lightning connector. The models would also do away with a physical home button, they said. Those updates would give the iPhone features already available on other smartphones.

While it would be nice to be able to carry around only one cable for (newer) MacBooks and the iPhone, anyone with the just-released AirPods would still need the Lightning cable. So yeah, it would seem far more likely that the USB-C element here is the other end of the cable.

Still, the other parts of the new iPhone, all of which do seem accurate based on various reports, sound awesome. I can already sense my current iPhone's performance degrading just in time to upgrade in the fall...
