Apple’s Latest iPhone 15 Features USB-C Charging

Apple has made a big change to the charging situation for the new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro. The proprietary Lightning port has been replaced with USB-C, making it possible to charge the phone with almost any USB-C cable and power adapter available online.

The new iPhone 15 comes with a braided cable in the box, but any USB-C cable can be used, including those marketed as ‘Android’ phone cables. However, if the phone seems to be charging slowly, it may be necessary to change the charging brick.

Previously, Apple included small 5-watt power adapters with the iPhones. While it is safe to use these with the iPhone 15, it will only charge at a speed of 5 watts, which means it could take up to five hours to go from zero to 100%. This slow charging is due to the larger battery capacities of modern smartphones.

To fast charge the iPhone 15, a higher wattage charging brick is needed. The iPhone’s USB-C port can receive power up to 27 watts, but the most practical speed is around 20 watts. With a USB-C cable and an Apple 20 W USB-C power adapter, the iPhone 15 can go from zero to 50% in about 30 minutes, and from zero to 100% in under 2 hours.

It is not necessary to only use Apple accessories for charging, as there are many higher-wattage USB-C charging options available, like the dual USB-C compact charger from Anker. It’s also safe to use power adapters rated higher than 20 watts, as they will automatically charge the iPhone at its maximum speed.

With the new USB-C feature, all Apple devices can now be fast charged with the same cable and 60-watt (or higher) MacBook power adapter, providing convenience and speed. This change marks a new era in charging for Apple’s latest devices.
