There have been a number of reports suggesting that Apple is going to enable USB-C on the iPhone 15, so it looks like it's getting pretty solid.
According to the latest news from Apple's upstream suppliers, the iPhone 15 will use USB-C interface, while many Lightning data cable suppliers that have made MFi certification have gone out of business.
The news also mentions that 80% of MFI-approved Lightning cable suppliers will be closed down, and some will either be converted or the production line will follow Apple to make new cables.
As it stands now, the USB-C port used by the iPhone 15 Pro series will not have any shrinkage or limitation on data transfer, while the regular iPhone 15 series will have limited data transfer, probably to USB 2.0 level at best.
Even if the entire iPhone 15 uses USB-C ports, don't get too excited. Under the closed iOS system, Apple will have more ways to make money, and the $5 billion annual cost hole will have to be filled, industry insiders said.
In addition, a senior person engaged in investment banking said that if the domestic electronic equipment charging interface standard is unified, accelerate the market popularity of a single charging interface speed, will reduce the production cost of connector cable manufacturers, and may trigger a surge in market demand for a single charging interface, connector cable manufacturers will therefore usher in the golden period of shipment, good connector cable manufacturers; At the same time, due to the unified charging interface standard, the domestic consumer electronics industry will achieve more extensive scale development.
