Apple reveals more details on new iPhone 15 USB-C port

There was one big change between the new iPhone and the old ones: instead of Lightning, it has a USB-C port.

4.5W of power will be available from the USB-C port on all iPhone 15 models, according to an Apple support document 

The Lightning port on prior iPhones had 0.3W, thus 9to5Mac notes that accessories are more versatile.

Another important detail from the document is that the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will enable USB 3.2 Gen 2 for 10 Gbps data transfers.

Since the USB-C cable that comes with these phones only works at USB 2 speeds, you'll need to get a different one if you want to send data as quickly as possible.

Switching to USB-C is without a question one of the most important changes to the iPhone series since it first came out in 2007.
