So do I need the USB connection or not?

New user here.  Every video I watched, or breakdown shows the person connecting their iPhone to their controller via USB cable.  I do not have a USB connection other than micro usb on my controller which my iPhone cannot connect to.  So do I need this or not?  All this information is so confusing as there appears no consistency.

Thanks

Which phantom do you have?  If it's the 3 standard or 4k. You hook up to the remote via wifi. If it's the advanced or pro use your lightning cable to hook to the remote.

Perhaps you haven't found the manual for your drone.  
Go to www.dji.com and they are all there in Downloads for each model

I am going based on the DJI Go App which tells me to set it up to connect the wire.  Which I cannot do.

From what you are saying, I suspect you have a Phantom 3 4K, not Phantom 3 Professional 4K. In which case you may not have downloaded the correct manual, get the one for the 4K, not the Pro. The reason you do not have a USB connection is because the device connects to the RC unit via a WiFi connection, not a cable. If you are looking at tutorials on how to connect, again you should be looking for the one describing the 4K, not the Professional model.

Read the manual. You have a Phantom 3 4K. Not a Professional. The 4K and the Standard have only the micro usb port on the Remote.
