More and more devices are coming equipped with USB-C ports, but what are they?

Knowing how USB-C ports work and where to find them is crucial as Apple switches to using them on more of its products.

What is USB-C?

Most likely, you are familiar with USB, a type of connector for your electronic devices. Well, USB-C is simply another type of USB with a unique port and connector design.

Since its introduction in 2014, USB-C has become a popular charging and data-transfer technology.

Since then, USB-C has become increasingly popular and is frequently found on Android devices.

Since many years ago, the majority of current flagship Android devices have used USB-C as their primary connector.

However, Apple has continued to use its own Lightning port.

The EU passed a law last year that demanded

All upcoming smartphones, tablets, and other electronics will have USB-C charging ports.

“All cell phones, tablets, and cameras sold in the EU by the end of 2024 must have a USB Type-C charging port. The requirement will include laptops starting in the spring of 2026,” according to the European Parliament.

The new regulations will allow consumers to use a single charger for a wide variety of small and medium-sized portable electronic devices, eliminating the need for a different charger each time they buy a new device.

Greg Joswiak, the head of marketing at Apple, responded to the modification by telling The Wall Street Journal: “Obviously we’ll have to comply. We are powerless.

Has USB-C improved?

Higher data transfer rates and quicker charging speeds are both possible with USB-C.

Additionally, because of their symmetrical design, there is no “right way up” to plug them in.

The fact that they are becoming more widespread is significant because it means that in the future you will be able to use the same cable on more devices.

Which iPhone versions support USB-C?

According to what you mean, maybe. A USB-C connector cannot currently be inserted into any iPhone model’s primary charging hole.

However, the new iPhone 15 is anticipated to change that in September 2023.

However, USB-C charging cables have been a standard for iPhones for some time.

With the iPhone 11, Apple changed the charging adapter end of its cable to USB-C, but left the phone end as a Lightning tip.

Most likely, the iPhone 15 will be the first iPhone to use USB-C on both ends of the cable.

Of course, Apple has long used full USB-C cables with its other devices.

Several iPad and MacBook models use USB-C cables.
