Analyst Says Only iPhone 15 Pro Gets USB-C Port Next Year

Apple will switch to using USB-C connectors for its new phones. However, it remains to be seen when that change occurs. Apple products analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the new port change will occur in the second half of 2023, which means it coincides with the launch of the iPhone 15 series.

Kuo believes Apple will bring USB-C to all of 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 can manage up to 40 Gbps for data transfer. The iPhone 15 and 15 Max will use USB 2.0 which is up to 480 Mbps just like the current iPhone equipped with Lighting.

Apple has a long history of differentiating features between the Pro and vanilla or standard iPhone models. If there is a later update to the USB-C connector, then it sounds plausible that the Pro variant will get the high-speed one.

Kuo also speculates that Apple may add a solid-state volume button to the 15 Pro series. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro Max can also get a periscope lens with up to 6x magnification.
