Now the iPhone may be diffrentiated by the speed of USB-C

According to renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 15 Pro models will experience a significant improvement in their wired transfer speeds with the move to USB-C. Unfortunately, he doesn’t think such a feature will be available for ordinary iPhones in 2023. He anticipates that the 15 and 15 Plus will likewise switch to USB-C connectors, although they will still only support the same USB 2.0 speeds as the Lighting-enabled 10th-generation iPad in 2022.

The forecast was made by Ming-Chi on Twitter on Wednesday, and he claims the data comes from his “latest study.” (The analyst is renowned for using supply chain sources to get information.) The “15 Pro & 15 Pro Max will support at least USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3,” he specifically stated. If so, they would be able to transport data at rates of up to 40 Gbps, which would be beneficial for those who use the Pro phones to shoot a lot of ProRes video and raw images as fast Wi-Fi and cloud uploads aren’t suitable replacements.

Guess now Apple is getting tired even of its fake innovation as every year the difference in newer iPhones is declining. Now even it’s not hard for even iOS fans to see that the value of the upgrade in iPhone is declining, and as Apple is adjusting its focus on services more than goods, it is clear that it will tend to decline. So in iPhone 15 series, maybe the only difference between the base and Pro variant would be the speed of the charging connector. Though to be honest, despite this lack of innovation, iPhone is still competiting easily with its rivals, which also indicates that some things don’t need upgrades again and again and also that users should stop upgrading uselessly.

As of late, it appears that Kuo has additional information on how Apple will use USB-C to differentiate its products and how the 2023 crop of iPhones will include it. In May 2022, Kuo predicted that the change in connection “may boost iPhone’s transfer and charging speed.” Since then, the EU has required that new phones must utilize USB-C if they include a charging connector (a rule Apple suggested it will reluctantly follow), though the regulation won’t take effect until fall 2024. This was taken in a speech by the Vice President of Apple.

It won’t necessarily come as a surprise if Apple increases the transfer speeds for its next pro models but not for the normal ones. This is particularly relevant considering that the standard iPhones do not yet support sophisticated content creation tools like ProRes video or raw images.

 While the mainstream versions continued to use the internal technology from last year, the iPhone 14 Pro received a new processor this year. Better wired speeds feel like the kind of feature that pros would value, and Apple has been looking for ways to differentiate its higher-tier phones evermore.
