We've shipped an implementation with external authenticator support on iOS. It properly supports USB authenticators through the lightning port on devices that have it, with ordinary adapters. We consider USB-A, USB-C and lightning to be equivalent and interchangeable, even though in some cases adapters are needed. Thus, Apple thinks it's appropriate to remove "lightning" from the list of transports.
