When we really don’t know what it is iPhone next year We know what it will look like for a fact It will come with a USB-C port. Now we’re getting word that Apple may offer two different types of USB-C ports on its iPhones, one for the standard iPhone and iPhone Plus models, and the other for the Pro versions.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will definitely get rid of the Lightning connector on the iPhone 15 and eventually switch to USB-C. Interestingly, Kuo claims that Apple will use two different USB-C ports on its iPhones next year. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will reportedly have a standard USB-C port, and the wired transfer speed will be the same as the current Lightning connector. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will have significantly better transfer speeds, with Kuo saying the phones will “at least support USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3.”
Considering that users have been complaining about the transfer speeds found on the iPhone for some time, this is quite news. Apple’s Lightning connector first debuted in 2012, replacing the 30-pin dock connector popularized with Apple’s iPod products. The Lightning connector was compact, and best of all, it could be inserted into the charging port in either direction. Considering other phones used microUSB and USB-C wouldn’t appear on phones until 2015, this was a pretty big deal at the time.
Ten years after the Lightning connector was introduced, even though most products have switched to using USB-C, Apple has managed to stick with the Lightning connector despite its shortcomings. Although Forced to adopt USB-C or did it on its own, we know that the iPhone 15 with USB-C will be a big deal and will arrive in 2023.
