This Tuesday, September 12th, the official presentation of the iPhone 15 finally took place. In doing so, some of the leaks that we have been revealing for more than a year were fulfilled, while others were not seen. What caught our attention is that after talking about how Apple would limit USB-C, this has finally been implemented. It turns out that in the end it is the USB-C that we wanted so much The iPhone 15 is limited to USB 2.0 speeds so we have no progress.
Apple is the most valuable company in the world, and it’s rare that devices sell for significantly more than competitors but generate incredible sales. They succeeded in this differ from others We offer what we call the Apple ecosystem. Included here both hardware and software because we have Apple chips and our own operating systems with unique apps.
iPhone 15s use USB-C but are still limited to USB 2.0 speeds
If we add to this the design and materials that Apple uses in its devices, they attract more attention than others. Ultimately, it is this combination that has allowed them to continue to increase their popularity and sales. Now that the latest generation of iPhone has been unveiled, all eyes are on the new features it brings with it. Have new chips and more battery on all models although for many USB-C attracts the most attention.
Finally, the iPhone 15 and EU regulations have led to Apple replacing the old Lightning port after 11 years. USB-C
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will reach a speed of 10 Gbps
Due to EU laws, Apple finally decided to eliminate the Lightning interface. This was deprecated as it worked at the speed of USB 2.0 on iPhone 14 the past generation.
It seems that the curse of pulling USB 2.0 will never end as the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will continue with one maximum transfer rate of 480 Mbit/s (actually 60 MB/s). To make matters worse, the Apple website already states that the USB-C charger is offered 20W much less than what Android offers.
All these years, Apple has continued to impose the same speed cap while the competition has moved on. This may not matter to you as we already know that sales are still fantastic.
The only models that remove the 480 Mbps limit are the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max which is maximally achieved 10Gbps. Now, if you decide to buy USB-C cables, chargers, etc., you know that these limitations will be imposed on you and it remains to be seen what decision Apple will make regarding the official accessories.
