The American Tech Giant unleashes different innovations with its iPhone series each year. The Cupertino-based tech giant released its new iPhone 14 series last month, which comprises the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The series received decent love from the users and fans, especially the Pro variants. The Pro variants have more significant upgrades than its predecessor, like integrating Dynamic Island, 48 MP Pro Camera System, Satellite Connectivity, Crash detection, and more exclusive features.
The fans are now waiting for the upcoming iPhone 15 series and expecting drastic changes and innovations per Apple’s iterations. The series will likely include iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Ultra. It’s not even a month since the launch of the iPhone 14 series, and rumors about the upcoming iPhone 15 series, expected next year in September, are already surfacing around the internet. And the innovation starts with the USB Type-C port in the next generation of Apple devices.
iPhone 15 Series to feature USB Type-C port
Yes, you heard it right. The upcoming iPhone 15 series models iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro, and 15 Ultra are expected to come with USB-C ports. According to the recently unveiled report, Apple is planning to ditch the lightning port from their smartphones and switch to the USB-C port, as followed by the iPhone 14 series; the iPhone 15 series is also expected to come with four models with abrupt changes. The standard iPhone 14 did not receive much attention as it was similar to the iPhone 13. The other cause is that the prices of the iPhone 13 series suddenly decreased significantly during sales, forcing users to buy the iPhone 13, especially the iPhone 13 mini. However, Apple has discontinued the Mini series, and it is no longer with the iPhone 14 series.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 15 series will use different versions of USB-C ports to differentiate between standard and Pro models. The vanilla iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will get the USB-C port (USB 2.0) with the same data transfer speeds as the Lightning port. The Pro and Ultra models will have high-speed data transfer with the USB 3.2 version.
Why is Apple switching to USB-C instead of a lightning port?
The reason is straightforward. A press release states, “The European Council gave the European Parliament’s common charger directive approval, finalizing the legislative procedure that will make a USB-C port mandatory across a wide range of consumer electronic devices, including the iPhone and AirPods, by the end of 2024.” So, it has become essential and mandatory for Apple to ditch its lightning charging port and switch over to a USB-C port as early as possible.
What’s new in the iPhone 15 series?
The iPhone 14 Pro series was only given importance from every perspective. Therefore, some users have held this time and will catch up directly to the iPhone 15 series. But, the same is expected this time too. Apple will differentiate between standard and Pro variants by providing different processors. The iPhone 15 Pro is expected to arrive with an extended 8 GB of RAM to catch up with the new processor, which will probably be the A17 Bionic Chipset. The top-of-the-line of the series — iPhone 15 Pro Max or iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to feature a Periscope lens.
