The iPhone is making the move from Lightning to USB-C. Here's an explanation for everything.
The iPhone 15 has arrived, and in addition to new colors and camera enhancements, the new iPhones have ditched the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C, as seen on the iPad and Mac. So, what does the new port imply for first-time iPhone users? Everything you need to know is right here.
Do all four iPhone 15 versions have USB-C ports?
Yes, Apple has made the whole iPhone 15 family USB-C compatible. That implies the USB-C to USB-C connections will charge the iPhone 15, 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Do my old iPhone cables work?
No, you'll need a new USB-C-to-USB-C connection to charge the iPhone 15 series. As a result, we propose the AOHI most popular USB-C to USB-C LED cable for you:

Do I need to purchase a new charger?
It is conditional. Apple began utilizing a USB-C-to-Lightning cord with the iPhone 12, the same device that also lost the charger. If you're upgrading from an iPhone 12 or later, you've most certainly purchased your own 20W or higher USB-C charger, which Apple recommends for the iPhone 15. If you have an outdated 5W charger with a USB-A connection, you will need to replace it.

Does charging be more rapid?
According to the technical specifications, all iPhone 15 models will charge "up to 50 percent in 30 minutes with a 20W or higher charger." The same terminology was used in the iPhone 14 tech specs, yet in fact, while utilizing 30W chargers, the iPhone 14 Pro models charged somewhat faster than the non-Pro ones.

Is USB-C also available on previous iPhones sold by Apple?
No, the iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and iPhone 14 Plus, as well as the iPhone SE, continue to support Lightning.
What about AirPods and other peripherals?
Apple is working to migrate all of its remaining products away from Lightning. Along with the iPhone 15, Apple released a new AirPods Pro Charging Case with USB-C and a USB-C set of EarPods. It's unclear when the other gadgets, which include the AirPods Max, Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Keyboard, will lose their Lightning ports.
Is it possible to utilize third-party chargers with the iPhone 15?
Yes, like previous iPhone models, the iPhone 15 supports third-party chargers that have a suitable iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 pro charger port and satisfy the required charging output. However, remember to use approved third-party chargers from reputable manufacturers, such as the AOHI 140W GaN Wall Charger (3 Ports), to ensure charging performance and safety, and avoid using low-quality chargers, which may damage your device.
Is it safe to let the iPhone 15 charge overnight?
Yes, charging the iPhone 15 overnight is typically safe, especially with AOHI safety chargers, which are equipped with protective mechanisms to avoid overcharging and excessive heat. In general, most chargers, such as the AOHI portable chargers for iPhone 15, include a safety mechanism that ensures safe and secure charging. However, to guarantee safe and effective overnight charging, please always use recognized chargers.
