Apple is expected to finally switch to USB-C ports on its iPhone 15 series this fall. A first look at the alleged connector now shows the flexible circuit board assemblies on which it is installed. You can see the ports of the Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15.
According to previous rumors, the Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will have standard USB 2.0 ports. This means that the same data transmission speeds of 480 Mbit/s and charging speeds of up to 20 watts are possible as before with the lighting port. The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max get USB 3.2 ports and thus the first noticeable speed boost in an iPhone since 2012.
However, previous reports indicate that Apple will cap the data transfer rates and charging speeds of USB-C cables and accessories that aren’t part of the Made for iPhone (MFi) program.
We also have news about the launch date of the Apple iPhone 15 series. Apple hovers between September 12th and 13th, with the first date being the more likely scenario. One source of information is Apple’s carrier partners.
According to the tip, internal emails told employees not to take vacation days on Wednesday, September 13, due to a “major smartphone announcement.” Other sources, on the other hand, tend to point to September 12th for the presentation of the new Apple iPhones. In addition to pre-recorded videos, there will also be some live presentations. Of course, there will also be a small live audience on the Apple campus in Cupertino.
