IPhone 15 USB-C Cables Won’t Use MFI, Port Limited To USB 2.0 Speeds


The upcoming iPhone 15 series is tipped to replace its Lightning port to USB-C as the European Union is forcing its hand. With that, there have been numerous leaks and rumours regarding how exactly Apple plans on implementing this big change on its iconic device.

The latest of such leaks comes from researcher Majin Bu, who confirmed some good news and bad for Apple customers who plan on upgrading their phone this year. Starting with the good news, Bu claims that the cables won’t have the company’s Made For iPhone (MFI) chips which are used for verification on whether an accessory is compatible with iPhones.

This likely means that you’ll be able to use any third-party cable with the iPhone 15 lineup without many restrictions. Moreover, Apple is expected to include 1.6m long USB-C cables that support Power Delivery 3.0 up to 60W, so you’ll be able to use to charge other devices as well.

Unfortunately though, there will likely be a discrepancy between the Pro and non-Pro models. The ports of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will reportedly be limited to USB 2.0 speeds, the same 480Mbps data transfer speed cap as the current Lightning port. This will also limit the charging capabilities to a maximum of 20W.

As for the Pro and Pro Max, the duo are said to get either USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 or Thunderbolt 3 ports, capable of transfer speeds of 20Gbps and 40Gbps respectively. Rumours also allege that the iPhone 15 Pro models will get faster charging speeds of up to 35W paired with bigger batteries.
