Usb-C – Downsides That Are Not Mentioned In Launching Event
USB-C port was first time introduced in Apple products in 2016 in the MacBook Pro.
And then in 2018 they again added this feature to some other Apple products. Suddenly everyone heard the rumor that the iPhone 15 would have a USB-C port in it. This rumor gets everyone. Everyone is happy or relaxed to see this new feature of iPhone 15 but there is some other thing that they have not announced in their launch event.
People entering the world of USB-C will have to face the technology’s ugly side too.
The flexibility of USB-C is contaminated by the confusion of users that what will come along the USB-C port on the side of the device and the cable you plug into it. They have not cleared whether the cable or device supports high-speed data transfer, high electrical power, or not. They didn’t clear this confusion.
The iPhone 15 comes with a charging cable that causes trouble for users, the cable they gave is just fine for charging but it transfers the data at a mere 480 megabits per second, the speed of da6a transferring that came with USB 2.0 is 2000.
In their launch event, they didn’t clear the downsides of this cable or USB-C. but the spec sheets clear the confusion that it’s only slow USB 2.0. the iPhone 15 pro models will work at a more useful speed of 10Gpbs of USB3, but they give the USB 2.0 cable with the iPhone.
In short, for iPhone 15 series USB 3 cable is good in all regards.
This situation can be more inconvenient for many users but also it reflects the difficulties of the vast world of the USB ecosystem.
This USB-C is a much more faster or useful connection as compared to the Apple lightning port that has been used in iPhone models since the beginning. But they have to leave this lightning world and get the better one.
USB arrived in 1996 with a top speed of 12Mbps but the USB 2.0 is much more useful with a speed of 480Mbps, which is enough for printers and thumb drives. And afterward, many USBs came with top speeds even faster than this one. It is also said that in the future there will be USB 4 that will work with a speed of 80Gbps, which is good for high-performance storage systems, fast networks, and big monitors.
Always remember you get what you pay for. You can get the cable for your iPhone for just $60 and also for $15. people usually go for the cheap one which is a bad idea. The idea of developing cables that support high-speed data transfer or high-power charging is much more expensive and demands money. The cables that are only for charging purposes will not cost you that much but the ones that have both purposes of transferring data and charging will cost you more and have a high speed of data transfer.
Where iPhone 15 feature USB-C has been the new change in the iPhone model, there is also a downside of this new USB-C port. However, these downfalls were not mentioned in the launching event of the iPhone 15 series. People were not aware of these issues but when they used it they got to know these issues.
