The connector designed for the iPhone 15 Pro will be 40 times faster than that of the iPhone 15; this is clear from the new published photos which show USB-C connectors for different models of iPhone 15 smartphones.
Many insiders have already confirmed that Apple is going to switch from Lightning to USB-C this year. In particular, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and some other insiders have noted about this.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will reportedly use USB 2.0 with transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbps, similar to the previous Lightning interface.
At the same time, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will have USB 3.2, and the transfer speed can reach 20 GB/s, which is more than 40 times faster than the standard version.
Although the European Union requires charging cables to be universal, Apple can limit the power of chargers from third-party manufacturers to up to 5W (5V and 1A), meaning users will have to buy only Apple-made accessories.
NEWS.am Tech reported earlier that according to the results of a Geekbench test, the new iPhone 15 Pro will be 30% more powerful than its predecessor. This smartphone scored 30,669 points, which is 30% more than that of the previous generation iPhone 14 Pro with Apple A16 Bionic chipset.
The unveiling of the iPhone 15 series’ smartphones is scheduled for September.
