Moreover, as known iPhone is able to capture 4K videos for a while now. But getting the giant files off needs a great level of patience. Excitingly, this all may swap if the predictions of Ming-Chi Kuo Apple iPhone 15 pan out.

As per the tweets on Wednesday night, the analyst and prolific leaker from Apple’s supply chain commented that his latest supply chain checks hint that the entire iPhone 15 lineup will switch to USB-C of some flavour or another.

Moreover, as per Kuo, the Apple iPhone 15 and the Apple iPhone 15 Plus will continue with USB 2.0 speeds. This appears the same as previously shipped on the 2022 10.9-inch iPad. Along with the same Lightning.

He even suggests that the Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max may be at least 20 gigabits per second of USB 3.2. Also,40 gigabits per second of Thunderbolt 3.

However, the tweets by Kuo on Wednesday are not the first prediction of USB-C on the Apple iPhone 15. Previously in May 2022, he mentioned it as a real possibility for the first time.

Apple has periodically suggested migrating from Lightning to USB-C. It is for the forthcoming iPhone over the last few years. The EU has laid this on all smartphones. That is applicable to any manufacturer by the time the iPhone 16 rolls around.

As predicted maybe the 2023 launch will mark the end of the Lightning connector as Apple’s primary charging cable, after 13 years. USB-C made its way shortly after Lightning in 2012. But this didn’t come until the 12-inch MacBook in 2015. Apple used it as a shipping product.


Highlights of the Story

  • Apple may get Thunderbolt connectivity for Apple iPhone 15 Pro and other pro models.
  • It is even suggested that the complete iPhone 15 lineup may get a USB-C switch.
  • The 2023 launch would be the end of the Lightning connecting era for Apple.
