Apple Rumored to Introduce USB-C Ports on iPhone 15 Series, Possibly on iPhone 14 Models as Well
Apple is anticipated to replace the Lightning ports with USB-C ports on its upcoming iPhone 15 series. Furthermore, there are speculations about the release of two iPhone 14 models featuring USB-C ports.
Insider Claims USB-C Ports to Debut on iPhone 14 Models
According to a reliable source, Tipster Majinbu, Apple is planning to launch two iPhone 14 models equipped with USB-C ports alongside the new iPhone 15. This comes as a significant change since Apple typically discontinues its Pro models following the introduction of a new iPhone. It is expected that the USB-C ports will be featured on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models.
References in tvOS 17 Beta Version Support the Claims
Recent findings in the tvOS 17 beta version have provided further support to the rumors. Six references were discovered, including identifiers such as iPhone14,1, iPhone14,9, iPhone15,4, iPhone15,5, iPhone16,1, and iPhone16,2. It is speculated that iPhone15,4 and iPhone15,5 correspond to the iPhone15 and iPhone15 Plus models, equipped with the powerful A16 Bionic chip. On the other hand, iPhone16,1 and iPhone16,2 are presumed to be the iPhone15 Pro and iPhone A15 Bionic Pro models, incorporating the advanced It15 chip.
Unclear Identifiers Likely Belong to USB-C iPhone 14 Models
The identities of iPhone14,1 and iPhone14,9 remained ambiguous, but it seems likely that these identifiers represent the rumored USB-C iPhone 14 models.
Apple is expected to apply USB-C ports instead of Lightning ports to four types of iPhone 15 series this year. In addition, the possibility of releasing two types of iPhone 14 that have USB-C ports was raised.
According to foreign media BGR on the 10th (local time), Tipster Majinbu claimed through his Twitter account that “Apple will reveal two iPhone 14 models with USB-C ports along with the new iPhone 15.”
Apple usually discontinues its Pro models after the launch of a new iPhone. Therefore, the two USB-C iPhone 14 models are expected to be the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models, respectively.
In this regard, in the recent tvOS 17 beta version, a total of six references were found: ▲iPhone14,1 ▲iPhone14,9 ▲iPhone15,4 ▲iPhone15,5 ▲iPhone16,1 ▲iPhone16,2.
