The new iPhone 15 brings with it a new connector for Apple’s phone: USB-C. This means that we have to change our home cables and external batteries, and here we select the best ones.
A different USB-C for each iPhone
For those furthest behind, we must first explain that the USB-C of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus is not the same as that of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. While the former have a USB-C 2.0, the latter use a USB-C 3.2, which makes a huge difference when it comes to file transfer speed and the possibilities of connecting our iPhone to external screens. If you want a cable for your iPhone 15, it doesn’t make any sense to spend more money to have more than that USB 2.0, because it won’t do you any good, so it’s better to spend that extra money on a higher quality and stronger cable. If you only want to charge, it doesn’t make sense to spend more for a higher data speed, and if you want to connect external screens, don’t buy a USB 2.0 because it won’t work for you. Here we select the best ones for each need.
This cable from Nomad has the USB 2.0 standard, which means that it has a data transfer speed limited to 480Mbps and is therefore not suitable for connecting a monitor or transferring very large files quickly. What makes it special then? Well then It is a cable for life. Its structure is reinforced with Kevlar, the connectors are very resistant and the weak points are specially reinforced to prevent the cable from breaking when twisted over and over again. I’ve had it for 3 years to recharge first my iPad Pro and then the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro at home, and it’s like the first day. If you want a cable that will last a lifetime, this is yours. Perfect for iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, as well as those who only worry about charging their device.
This UGREEN cable is also USB 2.0, so perfect for recharging but equally limited for transferring data. It is of a similar quality to the Apple cable, perhaps a little more resistant, but cheaper, which makes it an excellent option if you want to have a spare cable for the car or work. If you have an iPhone 15 or 15 Plus and want to spend little money on a warranty cable, I wouldn’t think about it.
We go up a step and recommend an Anker cable compatible with USB 3.1 Gen2. This means that it allows a much higher data transfer speed than previous ones (up to 10Gbps) and is perfect for transferring large videos to your computer or for connecting your iPhone to an external screen. It is not made of braided nylon, but it is very well built and quite resistant, and its price is very good considering its features. If you have an iPhone 15 or 15 Plus you do not need this cable, but If you have an iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max and want to make the most of its featuresthis is your cable.
The last step of cables that we are going to climb is this one Satechi USB 4.0. It is above what our iPhone 15 Pro or 15 Pro Max can offer, but its build quality makes it perfect for those who not only want data transfer speed but also need high resistance. The perfect combination for those who want the best of the best in all aspects at a reasonable price.
