The iPhone 15 is reported to have faster charging speeds. Reports now making the rounds claim that the iPhone 15 might just be coming with faster charging speeds. The said transition from lightning to USB-C could get to see the iPhone models achieve a charging speed of up to 35W.
iPhone 15 Faster Charging Speeds
Apple is reportedly set to introduce the iPhone 15 in the next couple of weeks, and the long-rumored transition of the device from Lightning to USB-C may get to provide a boost to its charging speed. As per 9to5Mac, some of the new iPhone 15 models in question will be supporting charging up to 35W, in contrast to the 27W speeds that the current iPhone 14 Pro on the other hand is limited to.
Analyst Predictions Regarding the iPhone 15 Launch
Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst made similar predictions in the previous year, thus claiming that the supply chain of Apple indicated that the company would ditch Lightning in favor of USB-C in the year 2023. And according to Kuo, the switch in question would simply enable faster charging speeds for iPhone 15 Pro models, but the feature as you should know may only be supported via Apple-certified cables.
Apple reportedly stopped bundling its iPhones with power adapters back in the year 2020 in a bid to try and combat e-waste, so the company may just instead recommend that customers acquire the 35W dual USB-C charger that it released just last year, or the 30W USB-C charger that is designed for the MacBook Air in the event that it isn’t planning to sell a dedicated iPhone 15 charger.
European Union’s Stand On iPhones And USB-C Chargers
And regardless of charging speeds, it is very much likely that the iPhone 15 will be the first model of the company to transition to USB-C charging. The European Union as you should know has a deadline of December 28th, 2024 for all new phones that are sold within the bloc which is including iPhones to make use of USB-C for wired charging, therefore pushing it back another year would simply be cutting it close for Apple.
Apple iPhone 15 Rumors Before Launch
We have heard several rumors regarding other features of the iPhone 15 in the run-up to its official launch and unveiling, which as you should know is speculated to take place on Tuesday, September 12th. Models of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max could get to see a price spike in contrast to the last couple of iPhone generations and are also expected to feature slimmer bezels as well as a titanium frame instead of the current stainless steel chassis it sports.
A couple of reputable leakers also claim that Apple will not be selling a leather case for any of its new iPhone 15 models, although you will almost certainly be able to get a decent third-party option if this however does prove to be true.
