--Apple Inc. is testing future iPhone models that replace the current Lightning charging port with the USB-C connector, Bloomberg reported, citing people with knowledge of the situation.

--Additionally, Apple is working on an adapter that would let future iPhones work with accessories designed for the current Lightning connector, the report said.

--If a change did happen, it wouldn't occur until 2023 at the earliest. Apple is planning to retain the Lightning connector for this year's new models, Bloomberg reported.

--A reason for making the change comes in response to the European Union's decision to force phone and other device makers to adopt USB-C, the report said.
