Users of the iPhone 15 series from next year will notice that Apple has switched from using Lightning to USB-C connections for charging.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max’s cable transfer speeds will significantly increase as a result. Apple has stated that it intends to abide by the revised USB-C rules. However, it was unclear if the iPhone 15 would be the first model to adopt the change. Given that India is about to adopt the very same standard and that the European Union just voted to approve a resolution requiring IT companies to utilize Type-C connectors for charging, it is anticipated that Apple will follow suit shortly.
iPhone 15 Will Follow EU Standard
According to Kuo’s most recent supply chain surveys, Apple’s efforts to convert to USB-C are proceeding as anticipated. However, even though all of the iPhone models—the 15, iPhone Plus, 15 Pro, and 15 Pro Max—will convert to USB-C, only the two most expensive models will see faster transfer rates.
According to Kuo, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will support USB 2.0 at the same transfer rates as the Lightning port. This indicates that the maximum data transmission rate will be 480 Mbps.
And Kuo said. Since practically all Android phones only support USB 2.0 right now, this spec change and the new trend will boost the market for high transmission chips in the Apple environment and spur imitation from rivals. It will also help the elevated transfer IC design business flourish.
This is in line with Apple’s plan to maintain some significant distinctions between both the Pro and non-Pro versions. Additionally, according to Kuo, the 15 Pro, and 15 Pro Max will support data transfer rates of “at least USB-C 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3.” Data transfer rates might increase with Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C 3.2, reaching up to 20 Gbps and 40 Gbps respectively.
