iPhone 15 may support faster charging speeds via USB-C

Apple is set to introduce the iPhone 15 in the next few weeks, and the device’s long-rumored move from Lightning to USB-C could lead to faster charging. according to 9to5MacSome new iPhone 15 models will support charging at up to 35W, compared to the 27W speeds that the current iPhone 14 Pro is limited to.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo made a similar prediction last year, claiming that Apple’s supply chain indicated that the company would abandon Lightning in favor of USB-C in 2023. According to Kuo, the switch would enable faster charging speeds for iPhone 15 Pro models, but Feature may only be supported over Apple approved cables. Apple stopped bundling its iPhones with power adapters in 2020 to try to combat electronic waste, so the company may instead recommend that customers buy 35W Dual USB-C Charger Released last year, or 30W USB-C charger Designed for the MacBook Air if not planning to sell a dedicated iPhone 15 charger.

All new phones sold within the European Union must support USB-C charging by December 28, 2024.

Charging speeds aside, the iPhone 15 is very likely the first model to move to USB-C charging. The European Union has set a December 28, 2024 deadline for all new phones sold within the bloc — including iPhones — to use USB-C for wired charging, so delaying it for another year would soon cut it for Apple.

We’ve been hearing various rumors about other features of the iPhone 15 in the run-up to its official unveiling, which is expected to take place on Tuesday, September 12th. The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models could see a price hike over the past few iPhone generations, and are expected to feature slimmer bezels and a titanium frame instead of the current stainless steel body. A few reputable leakers also claim that Apple won’t be selling a leather case for any of the new iPhone 15 models, though you’ll be able to find a decent third-party option if that proves to be true.
