The European Union recently announced the official standardization of chargers as all smartphones including the upcoming iPhone 15 series will support charging through the USB-C port by the end of 2024
The new agreement includes many devices such as mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, earphones, digital cameras, headphones, portable video game consoles, portable wired rechargeable speakers, keyboards and computer mice.
Switching to a USB-C port will start with iPhone 15 Pro
mentioned Leaks Apple will try to use the USB-C port in the iPhone 15 series and is expected to be used in the iPhone 15 Pro, while the iPhone 15 will continue to use the Lightning port.
iPhone 15 – iPhone 15 series will have a new camera
The iPhone 16 will use a USB-C port, and the iPhone 16 Pro will have a USB-C port or will arrive without a port. So it turns out that with the iPhone 16, Apple’s own Lightning charging port will be abandoned for good.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in previous leaks that Apple will abandon the Lightning port in the second half of 2023 and adopt the USB-C port. This means that the upcoming iPhone 15 (Pro) series next year will be the first iPhone model to use the USB Type-C charging port and the last iPhone to have a Lightning port.
Another Apple analyst confirmed that the company is currently testing new devices that have the USB-C charging port in preparation for implementing EU laws to force the use of the USB-C interface. But he also claimed that the company would not adopt the USB-C charging port until 2023.
Apple may replace the Lightning port with a USB-C port with the upcoming iPhone 15!
