Apple will comply with the mandate of the European Union to modify the charging port of the iPhone, so it will have to join the USB-C standardization, which for analysts will be a problem in data transfer.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, who is usually correct with his predictions about the company’s products, the inclusion of this port will be done on all iPhone 15s, but only the Pro and Pro Max versions will support high-speed data transfer. speed.
Something that Apple is common to do, making a big difference between the lower models of each family such as the standard version and the Plus, which for this year were on the screen, processor, cameras, among others.

What it means to have USB-C for iPhone
Kuo says that the Pro versions of the company’s next cell phone will support USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 specifications, which is currently the fastest. The first would have a transfer rate of up to 20 Gbit/s, about 2.5 GB per second, which only works with USB-C.
While the second option, which is more powerful, reaches up to 40 Gbit/s, almost 5 GB per second. But both would be high-end options and the base phones wouldn’t cut it.
For this reason, for the standard and Plus versions, the analyst affirms that USB 2.0 will be used, this means that the range would be at a maximum of 480 Mbit/s, more or less 60 MB per second.
So they will be restricted and will not take advantage of this inclusion, which is mandatory for Europe, staying with the speeds reached by the current Lightning port, which allows the same as USB 2.0.
All this for now is to be confirmed, since Apple has not made it clear if the iPhone 15 will be the one with the change in the charging port or the modification will be made until 2024 with version 16.

iPhone 15 without buttons
the analyst Min Chi Kuo ensured that the Pro versions of the iPhone 15 they would set aside the keys on the sides to place haptic volume and power buttons.
The design would be very similar to what the iPhone 7 presented, which used a Taptic engine to simulate pressing a button with vibrations, or to what are the trackpads of Macwhich do not move, but simulate clicks using similar haptic technology.
“There will be Taptic Motors located on the inner left and right sides to provide force feedback so that users feel like they are pressing physical buttons,” the analyst stated.
In this way the next phone of Manzanaat least in the Pro versions, it would be totally tactile, since these two are the only buttons that the current versions and, in general, most cell phones on the market have.
What would cause the iphone increase your Taptic engines to three, in an internal design change for a different use for the user, although with a possible increase in the weight of the mobile, as it happens with the WatchUltra.
This is not the first time that Manzana seeks to adapt this technology to any of its devices. In 2018 they would have already been looking to integrate it into the smart watch, with the aim of improving water resistance.
