The USB 3.0 connector Lightning could reach iPad and iPhone

Job Vacancies in the Apple website often give rise to new rumors of what may be preparing the company for the future. Not the first time and probably not the last that seeing the deals we found something that later ends up becoming a reality.

This time, the Cupertino company is looking for a senior software engineer specializing in USB for joining the USB connectivity equipment company. This company is responsible for creating the necessary software for the USB ports of each and every one of the company's products work as well.

This triggered a rumor suggests that Apple could further improve the port Ligtning and move from the current USB 2.0 interface used in the end that connects to the computer, the new USB 3.0 specification, technology much faster and more powerful.

The next iPad and iPhone may have based on Lightning connector USB 3.0

The latest generation of Mac computers already have this type of connection, so it was somewhat surprising that the connector ligthning not include it by default when it first appeared on the iPhone 5 , but now that could change.

It is possible that the difference in performance between the connector with USB 2.0 Lightning or USB 3.0 is not too large. Given the time required to transfer data between a computer now an iPad or iPhone, we realize that USB 2.0 is faster than it can handle the iDevice, so possibly the difference not so important.

Anyway, this is just a rumor based on a job offer, so you still have to wait some time to confirm if this is true and Apple is thinking of changing again the cable to connect an iPad or iPhone a computer, either Mac or PC. It is noteworthy that, even if you move, this time it would not be such a drastic change as the passage of 30-pin connector to Lightning, as the USB 3.0 offers backward compatibility with previous generations of the connector. That is, it would be possible to use it on computers with USB 2.0.
