Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 series is set to adopt the USB-C interface, which will offer faster charging and data transfer speeds to users. In particular, the iPhone 15 Pro models will see an upgrade from the USB 2.0 protocol used with the Lightning interface to the faster USB 3.2 standard, which can achieve transfer rates of up to 5Gbps. However, it’s worth noting that the standard version of the iPhone 15 will only support the USB 2.0 protocol, with a transfer rate limited to 480Mbps.
While this upgrade is sure to be welcomed by many users, it also means that they may have to spend extra money on chargers and cables that support the new USB-C interface. Typically, users need to have two sets of charging equipment for different occasions, and they will likely need to purchase MFi-certified charging kits to ensure the safety of charging and device transmission.
Despite the extra cost, the interface upgrade is still a positive development for iPhone users as it will provide a better overall experience and make the iPhone more competitive in the market. With the increased speeds and convenience offered by USB-C, users will be able to charge their devices more quickly and transfer data faster than ever before.
It’s worth noting that USB-C is becoming increasingly common across a range of devices and manufacturers, making it a more universal standard that users can rely on. By adopting this interface for the iPhone 15 series, Apple is keeping up with industry trends and providing a better experience for its users. Additionally, the improved charging and data transfer speeds offered by USB-C will likely be particularly appealing to power users who require fast and reliable performance from their devices.
