Kuo: Only iPhone 15 Pro series will get USB 3.2 speeds

Apple is switching to USB-C for its new phones, although it remains to be seen when the change will take place. Noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is confident that the port change will happen in the second half of 2023, which should coincide with the launch of the iPhone 15 series.

Kuo believes that Apple will bring USB-C to all its new iPhone 15 models, although only the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will get the USB 3.2 standard or at least Thunderbolt 3, which should handle up to 40 Gbps for data transfers. The iPhone 15 and 15 Max will remain stuck at USB 2.0 speeds (up to 480 Mbps) just like the current lighting-equipped iPhones.

Apple has a long history of differentiating features between its Pro and vanilla model iPhones, so a high-speed USB-C connector sounds like a logical move for Cupertino. Kuo also speculates that Apple may add solid state volume buttons to the 15 Pro series. 15 Pro Max can also get a periscope lens with up to 6x magnification.
