Apple, with the launch of the iPhone 15 lineup, announced the transition of its charging port from Lightning to USB-C. The change was done to meet the European Union's new regulation regarding standard charging cables. While this change may come as a surprise for iPhone users and they might take time to get used to the USB-C charging technology, it was also believed that this could finally boost the charging speeds of the iPhone and meet the Android levels. However, the new report has presented some disappointing information. Let us take a look.

iPhone 15 Charging speed

According to a report shared by the Japanese blog Mac Otakara, in the case of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, the charging power will remain the same as the iPhone 14 Pro model at 27W. However, we have not been able to confirm the claims by the report at the moment. We will soon compare the charging speeds of the iPhone 15 series and its predecessor, and only then will be in a position to affirm the information. For a long time, Apple used its popular Lightning charge, and now with a new USB-C port, buyers are hoping that Apple may have improved in this area like other brands.  Also read: Looking to buy the Apple iPhone 15?

If the report came out to be true, however, then it will come as a major disappointment to buyers who are looking forward to a faster-charging iPhone. The sale for the iPhone 15 series will start on September 22, 2023, and buyers will get to actually experience the new high-end smartphone by Apple.
