This story includes three very important players in the world of the bitten apple: iOS 13, iPhone 11 and the USB-C port. As you know, Apple replaced its USB Lightning port with a USB-C port in the latest generation of iPad Pro. But this change has not yet reached the iPhone.
Now, a very interesting track in iOS 13 has recently been discovered that could suggest that the new iPhone line of 2019 will have a USB-C port.
iOS 13 continues to leave us very interesting clues about the iPhone XI
The beta version of iOS 13 has left us with an image of the restoration process that could indicate that the iPhone XI, the iPhone XI Max and the successor of the iPhone XR will come with a USB-C type port. A clue that confirms the many rumors about this change.

This was discovered by user Raphael Mouton ( via Twitter ) in his tweet:
“MORE THAN A LIGHTNING PORT AND ITUNES ON THE RESTORE SCREEN, A USB-C PORT? AND A FUTURE UTILITY FOR THE IPHONE ON THE MAC? “
The user interface of this restoration process in iOS 13 could indicate that from now on it will be possible to connect the iPhone to the Mac in a much more comfortable and fast way. In addition, the arrival of the USB-C port to the iPhone would imply being able to connect many more accessories to the smartphone and even charge its battery with the same cable.
During the WWDC of 2019, Apple stressed that with iPadOS it would be possible to improve the compatibility of the USB-C port of the iPad Pro to incorporate the connection with SD cards and external drives. Will the same thing happen on the iPhone 11?
