However, this limitation could also defeat the purpose of standardizing a charging port. While the inclusion of the IC is not surprising, given Apple's tendency to restrict third-party accessories, it raises concerns about whether the iPhone 15's USB-C port will truly be a standard port that can be used with any compatible device. That said, it's worth noting that this is still a rumor, and we will have to wait for an official announcement from Apple to confirm the details.
Additionally, the article notes that the iPhone 15 is expected to come with two different types of USB-C ports. The standard iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models will feature USB-C 2.0 ports, which will offer limited speeds, while the iPhone 15 Pro, Pro Max, and possible Ultra models will come with USB-C 3.2 ports, which will offer faster data speeds. The article also mentions other expected features, such as Dynamic Island for all iPhone 15 models, periscopic lenses for the Pro models, and a changed price strategy.
Overall, while the iPhone 15's USB-C port is a highly anticipated feature, the limitations associated with it could be a cause for concern for some users. We'll have to wait for more information from Apple to get a better idea of how the new port will work and what limitations it may have.
