According to reports, the iPhone 15 series, which is expected to debut at Apple’s next event in September, will be equipped with new chips that will allow faster data transfer speeds than existing iPhone models. The Cupertino company’s upcoming smartphone may ditch the proprietary Lightning port in favor of the widely available USB Type-C port. By switching to modern connectors, future iPhone models could not only offer faster charging, but fast data transfer speeds as well.
Tipster ‘Fix Apple’ recently shared picture Charging Connector (CC) flex cable for four smartphones (iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max).in another postal The X (formerly known as Twitter) account also shared the iPhone 15 series CC flex cables, as well as integrated circuits (ICs) and power management chips. Now a new report claims that the chip on all the phone images could improve the port’s performance compared to older models.
According to ChargerLAB Report, zooming in on the image shared by X user shows that there is an IC behind the USB Type-C socket, which is a Retimer chip, which is usually found on high-speed data transmission devices that support Thunderbolt and USB 4 high-speed transmission. If the report is accurate, all of Apple’s upcoming phones could support data transfers of up to 40Gbps.
The rumored Retimer chip might not be the only chip used in the iPhone 15 series — a recent report suggested that the company might equip the phones with an Apple-made 3LD3 chip. According to the whistleblower, the device can use the chip for transmission encryption, which can regulate the charging speed and enhance the data transmission of the iPhone 15 series.
Apple has yet to announce a launch date for the iPhone 15 series, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says the company could launch the phones on September 12 or September 13. A mobile phone site believed to be the iPhone 15 was recently spotted on BIS certification, hinting at an imminent launch in the country. Meanwhile, Bloomberg recently reported that the Cupertino-based iPhone maker has started production of the iPhone 15 series in Tamil Nadu before launching it in the country.
