According to rumours, Apple will hold a launch event next month to introduce the iPhone 15 series. There will probably be a number of improvements in the newest smartphone series, including a new charging connector and an upgraded back camera setup. The upcoming iPhone 15 models are expected to have a USB Type-C port that supports USB 2.0 connectivity, which will result in slower charging and transfer speeds than a USB 4 or Thunderbolt interface. A new source, however, claims that there is a potential the base iPhone 15 devices would employ a slower USB standard. On the other hand, only the iPhone 15 Pro versions may feature a high-bandwidth USB-C connector.
Majin Bu who previously shared the images of colour-matched USB Type-C Cables again revealed that the firm will only allow the iPhone 15’s USB-C to operate at USB 2.0 rates. According to him, iPhone 15’s USB-C port may be comparable to the current Lightning Port.
An earlier report stated that the iPhone 15 Pro models would come with the blazing-fast Thunderbolt USB-C Port, which has rates up to a whopping 40Gbps.
The upcoming iPhones may provide data transmission speeds of up to 40Gbps since they have a Retimer chip, which is often seen on high-speed data transmission devices that enable Thunderbolt and USB 4 for high-speed transfers.
A few days back Majin Bu posted pictures of what appears to be the USB Type-C cable that will be included with the iPhone 15. He claims the cable will be 1.6 metres long and have 16 connectors. Compared to the current Apple USB Type-C to Lightning charging cords, it is considered thicker and more durable.
The cable that comes with the iPhone 15 will reportedly allow 20V at 3A charging and USB 2.0 connectivity. According to information that has emerged about the cable, the bundled adapter will support data transfers at speeds of up to 480Mbps.
Some iPhone 15 models, according to a different claim, will reportedly enable 35W wired charging using the new USB Type-C connection. The iPhone 14 Pro presently supports 27W charging, which is the quickest charging speed available for an iPhone to date.
