One of the biggest changes planned for this year's iPhone is the switch from Lightning to USB-C. The transition will be at the request of the European Union, as companies that sell phones in Europe they should release their devices with USB-C from 2024.
Apple probably doesn't want to wait until the last minute and plans to equip the iPhone with a USB-C port from 2023.
An image that posted by Unknownz21 on Twitter shows us the USB-C port on the iPhone 15 Pro.
Of course we can't say if the image is real or not, but there's a good chance that the real iPhone 15 Pro won't look too different from this one.
The European Union has proposed new regulations for device manufacturers in October.
“By the end of 2024, all mobile phones, tablets and cameras sold in the EU must be equipped with a USB Type-C charging port. From the spring of 2026, the obligation will also be extended to laptops. The new law, which was approved by the Plenary by 602 votes to 13 with 8 abstentions, is part of a wider EU effort to reduce e-waste and empower consumers to make more sustainable choices," the EU announced at the time .
But rumors suggest that Apple is looking for new ways to extend the Made for iPhone program to USB-C cables as well. This could be bad news for users, as a USB-C cable that is not certified for iPhone could end up with charging and data transfer restrictions.
