iPhone 15 Pro Rumored to Feature Thunderbolt Port With Significant Advantage Over Lightning

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a USB-C port and support at least USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3, which will give the devices significant speed over existing models Advantage.

Thunderbolt 3 theoretically offers up to 40 Gbps of bandwidth, while the Lightning connector supports USB 2.0 speeds of up to 480 Mbps on all existing iPhones. Even with real-world performance constraints, the iPhone 15 Pro with a Thunderbolt-enabled USB-C port can deliver significantly faster data transfer speeds over a Thunderbolt cable, allowing you to get large files off your iPhone faster, For example a 48 megapixel ProRAW photo.

Even though the iPhone 15 Pro models only support USB 3.2, that means a theoretical transfer speed of between 5 Gbps and 20 Gbps, depending on specs, which is still much faster than Lightning.

Most iPads with USB-C ports already offer faster transfer speeds. iPad Pro models with the M1 chip and later support Thunderbolt 3 at up to 40 Gbps of bandwidth, up to 10 Gbps on the fifth-generation iPad Air, and up to 5 Gbps on the fourth-generation iPad Air and the latest iPad mini. Unique The exception to this is the new 10th generation standard iPad with a USB-C port, which is still limited to USB 2.0 speeds.

Like the 10th-generation iPad, Kuo said that the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will remain limited to USB 2.0 speeds despite switching to USB-C ports. AirDrop will remain an option for faster wireless data transfers on these devices.
