Separate us a few days from the Apple conference to unveil the iPhone 15. According to several reports over the course of a year, that all models IPhone 15 It will come with a USB-C port instead of the current Lightning one. But there may be differences in speed between all iPhone 15 models. Here's everything to be expected about the speed of USB-C cables and ports coming with iPhone 15 models compared to the current one.
In November 2022, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo announced that the USB-C port on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would be compatible with USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 (andWe talked about this in a previous article). This allows data transfer speeds of up to 20 or 40 gigabits per second. He also pointed out that the USB-C port in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models will come with USB 2.0 speeds, with a maximum speed of 480 Mbps, which is identical to the speed of the Lightning port on the current iPhone devices.
All current-generation iPad and Mac models contain USB-C ports at different speeds, as follows:
Expected speeds for iPhone 15 models:
Higher speeds mean faster data transfer rates and more efficiently using a USB-C or Thunderbolt cable. Which makes the process of transferring photos or other files from your iPhone to your Mac, for example, much faster.
Rumors indicate that Apple is planning to include a new braided or “braided” USB-C cable with all iPhone 15 models, but the cable may still be limited to supporting only USB 2.0 speeds, such as the Lightning port.
So those who bought iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max may have to buy a separate high specification wire to take full advantage of the expected higher speeds.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 15 series on Tuesday, September 12.
