It is anticipated that Apple will switch to a USB-C port on the iPhone 15 in place of the Lightning port. In addition to greater compatibility, the new connector will eventually provide faster charging, but only when using MFi (Made for iOS) certified cords, claims a recent report.
The 20W and 27W charging rates for the latest iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro (review) are the lowest of all premium smartphones. For the future iPhone 15, Apple is apparently working to make things better. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst, claims that it would only be supported for approved cables. In other words, using non-Apple or unauthorised USB cords will prevent the quicker charging speed from working.
On the Apple iPhone 15, turn on fast charging
The prediction made by Kuo is consistent with a rumor that circulated on China’s Weibo platform last month. It was explained that Apple would restrict the iPhone 15’s port’s usability by allowing just MFi accessories to function with it. The restriction also offers a few advantages. When a non-compliant or broken accessory is being utilized with the iPhone, for example, the user will be alerted.
While Apple is taking this action to safeguard its customers from replica items that could harm iPhones, it would also make other USB-C devices that provide speedy and fast charging incompatible.
The iPhone 15 series would be introduced in September of this year if one were to adhere to Apple’s release schedule. The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will have a titanium chassis and solid-state buttons, while the ordinary models are anticipated to include the new Dynamic Island design. The more expensive models could benefit from the A17 Bionic chipset’s increased speed and efficiency. Unfortunately, prices for the new iPhones may increase this year.
