Warning: Using Android USB Type-C Cables for iPhone 15 Series May Pose Risks, Apple Reseller Cautions

1 Mins read
  • The iPhone 15 lineup debuted at Apple's launch event on September 13
  • Users can purchase optional USB-3-compatible cable for fast data transfer
  • USB Type-C port on the latest iPhone series support multiple functions

Since the unveiling of the iPhone 15 series at Apple’s ‘Wonderlust’ event on September 12, users have been intrigued by the inclusion of USB Type-C charging ports in these devices. This departure from Apple’s traditional Lightning ports aligns the iPhone 15 lineup with the USB Type-C standard commonly found on Android smartphones. While this shift promises increased versatility, a cautionary note has emerged from an Apple reseller, advising against the use of Android USB Type-C cables with iPhone 15 series devices.

The iPhone 15 series, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, represents a significant upgrade over its predecessors in terms of specifications and features. Among the notable changes is the introduction of USB Type-C ports, bringing Apple in line with industry standards seen in many Android devices.

However, a recent report from the Chinese website CNMO sheds light on a warning issued by an Apple store located in Foshan City, Guangdong Province, China. According to this report, the Apple reseller advised iPhone users against using Android USB Type-C charging cables with Apple smartphones, citing potential risks, including the possibility of device damage due to incompatible cables.

Some users have speculated that this cautionary stance could be a strategic move to encourage customers to purchase Apple’s proprietary charging cables, thereby boosting the company’s revenue. It’s important to note that Apple’s official support page has already stated that USB Type-C standard cables are compatible with the latest iPhone models, implying that their use should not pose inherent risks.

In fact, Apple touts the USB Type-C port’s capabilities, claiming it provides 15 times more power output than the Lightning port, which delivers a mere 0.3W. Additionally, Apple bundles a USB 2-compatible cable with the iPhone 15 Pro models, ensuring that users have a suitable cable out of the box. Those seeking enhanced data transfer speeds can opt for an optional USB 3-compatible cable, readily available through Apple’s online and offline stores, as well as authorized resellers.

Our Conclusion

In the realm of technology, it’s often advisable to err on the side of caution. While there may be differing opinions on the compatibility of USB Type-C cables across various devices, users should exercise care and utilize reputable cables to ensure the safety and longevity of their valuable devices.
