The iPhone 15: Rumors of Faster Charging Speeds and USB-C Support

As the anticipated release of the iPhone 15 draws closer, rumors are swirling about the exciting features and potential changes that Apple might introduce with their next generation smartphone. A recent report suggests that select models of the iPhone 15 will support faster charging speeds, thanks to the inclusion of a USB-C port.

According to a report from 9to5Mac, which cites unnamed industry sources, at least some of the upcoming iPhone 15 models will support charging speeds of up to 35 watts. In general, higher wattage translates to faster charging times. Apple has already made strides in this department, with the iPhone 14 series supporting 20-watt ENBLE fast charging that can replenish your iPhone’s battery up to 50% in just around 30 minutes.

Rumors speculate that the iPhone 15 will mark a significant departure from its predecessors by featuring a USB-C port instead of the Lightning connector. This switch could potentially unlock the ability for speedier charging. To comply with the European Union’s mandate that new phones must work with a common USB-C cable by 2024, Apple had already confirmed their intention to transition to USB-C. However, the precise implementation and timeline for this change remain uncertain. It is possible that only certain models within the iPhone 15 lineup will adopt the USB-C port, or that the switch will be limited to iPhones sold in Europe.

Although the prospect of increased charging speeds would undoubtedly be welcomed by iPhone users, it is worth noting that some of Apple’s competitors already offer even faster charging capabilities. For instance, Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Plus and S23 Ultra support 45-watt fast charging, while the Lenovo ThinkPhone boasts an astonishing 68-watt fast charging option, placing it among the fastest charging smartphones available in the US. Outside of the US market, the Xiaomi 13 Pro takes the cake with its support for 120-watt charging, allowing its 4,820-mAh battery to reach full capacity in approximately 20 minutes.

As of this writing, Apple has not officially commented on the rumors surrounding the iPhone 15’s charging speeds and USB-C support. It remains to be seen how Apple will address these features and whether they will surpass the charging capabilities of their competitors. Nonetheless, the excitement surrounding the iPhone 15 continues to build, and users eagerly anticipate what Apple has in store for their latest flagship device.

As we draw closer to the expected reveal of the iPhone 15, rumors are flying about features and changes that might come with Apple’s next iPhone. A new report says some iPhone 15 models will support faster charging speeds, thanks to USB-C.

At least some of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 models will support charging with up to 35 watts, according to a report Thursday from 9to5Mac, which cited unnamed industry sources. 

Higher wattage generally means faster charging. Apple says the iPhone 14 series supports 20-watt ENBLE fast charging that can recharge your iPhone up to 50% in around 30 minutes.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 is rumored to have a USB-C port instead of the Lightning connector, which could allow for speedier charging. Last year, Apple confirmed that it’ll comply with the European Union mandate that new phones work with a common USB-C cable by 2024. However, we don’t know exactly how or when Apple will undertake this change. It’s possible that just some models in the iPhone 15 lineup will make the switch to USB-C, or that the change will come only to iPhones sold in Europe. 

Increased charging speeds would likely be welcome, but they’d still fall behind what’s offered by some Apple competitors. Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Plus and S23 Ultra support 45-watt fast charging, and the Lenovo ThinkPhone supports 68-watt fast charging, one of the fastest options available in the US. Outside the US, the Xiaomi 13 Pro supports 120-watt charging, which means its 4,820-mAh battery can be fully charged in about 20 minutes. 

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
