The much-hyped Apple iPhone 15 was rumored to feature a USB-C port. The era of Lightning ports for Apple iPhones will end with the new variant of 2023. The company has reportedly been trying to incorporate the new technology since before the iPhone 14 range. One of the rumors suggested that there was a variant with a Lightning port, but it did not make it to production.
The iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will remove the data transfer speed limitation of the Lightning port. Since January 2022, the company has been testing various features in this regard. Several tipsters on Twitter have also reported that the next iPhone will have a USB-C port.
iPhone 15 USB-C Port Has Been In The Testing Phase Since 2022:
Apple has been testing different versions since January last year. Therefore, most tipsters were confident that the iPhone 15 would have a USB-C port. We are missing something: Apple is not a fool to introduce this in non-pro versions. However, the data transfer speed may be lacking if Apple decides to add USB-C to these versions. I can assume that Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max may get USB-C functionality with high-speed capability.

The tipster in a Twitter thread says the standard or non-pro versions may come with USB 3.0. It should be noted that USB 3.0 offers a slightly slower data transfer rate. Similarly, the Pro and Pro Max versions will support USB 3.2 OR Thunderbolt-level speeds. Taking this into account, the data transfer speed can range from 2500 MB/s to 5000 MB/s.
The more you spend, the better the speed. The more expensive versions with Thunderbolt speeds will transfer data in a very short time. These are the technical reasons for Apple to make this huge change. Another reason for the Apple iPhone 15 USB-C port is to comply with new EU legislation. The law forces smartphone companies to develop phones with USB-C charging ports by 2024.
