All iPhone 15 models this year are expected to adopt USB-C ports for the first time, and while USB-C has many advantages over Lightning, another rumor today indicates that Apple’s standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models are unlikely to have Any increase in data transfer speeds after the transition.


according to the leaker Magon Boowho previously shared details about Apple’s new cables, the USB-C cables in the iPhone 15 boxes are already limited to USB 2.0 data transfer speeds of 480Mbps, which is the same speed as Lightning.

On the other hand, rumors converge about both models of the iPhone 15 Pro, which support higher transfer speeds via USB-C. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 15 Pro models will support USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 “at least”. For comparison, the iPad Pro features a Thunderbolt port for transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps, while entry-level iPads have a USB-C port limited to just 480Mbps.

And with higher-spec data transfer speeds, iPhone 15 Pro models will be able to transfer video and other file types much faster than iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.

Every iPhone 15 will include a braided USB-C charging cable in the box that is thicker (i.e. more durable) and 50% longer than the Lightning cable that ships with current iPhone models, according to the reports. The cables are also rumored to match potential new colors for the iPhone, coming at least in black, white, yellow, blue and orange.
