Key Takeaways

  • Apple has finally replaced the Lightning connector with a USB-C port on the new iPhone 15 models, aligning with the industry standard.
  • The move to USB-C was prompted by an EU ruling that requires small-to-medium sized devices to have a USB-C charging port by 2024.
  • USB-C allows for some new possibilities, such as charging an Apple Watch or using faster transfer speeds on the iPhone 15 Pro models, but it won't make charging an iPhone faster.
