Online posting of alleged iPhone 15 USB-C Connector parts contains images.

Apple is reportedly planning to switch from Lightning charging technology to USB-C charging standards, as evidenced by leaked images of iPhone 15 USB–C connector ports on the internet today.

The USB-C connector ports that are attached to the flexible PCB component parts used in the standard iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone Pro Max were reportedly shown in these consolidated images shared on X (formerly Twitter) by @lipilipsi and @John011235.

According to reliable sources such as Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Ming-Chi Kuo, and other analysts, Apple is likely to replace Lightning with USB-C in all 2023 iPhone 15 models.

Apple will be able to comply with new EU regulations by making iPhones with USB-C ports in the EU, which necessitates a worldwide design swap or the production of special iPhone models for sale in Europe.

The iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to have USB-C ports that enable faster data transfers, while the standard iPhones will continue to support USB 2.0 speeds similar to Lightning.

According to Leaker ShrimpApplePro, iPhone 15 models will only support USB-C accessories certified by the Apple Made for iPhone (MFi) program. Foxconn is reportedly producing EarPods and cables with MFi certified USB–C connectors.

ShrimpApplePro suggests that the absence of MFi USB-C certification could restrict features like fast charging and high-speed data transfers to Apple-approved accessories.

Gurman stated that Apple is planning to hold its annual iPhone event on September 12 or 13 this year.
