Apple has unveiled its latest iPhone 15 series, featuring a notable change - the introduction of a USB-C port, replacing the familiar Lightning port. This move opens up new possibilities for charging options. Users can now charge AirPods or an Apple Watch directly from their iPhone 15 using an appropriate cable, like a USB-C to USB-C cable for the new AirPods Pro 2 USB-C Charging Case or a USB-C Apple Watch charging puck.

This innovation offers practical benefits. If your AirPods or Apple Watch runs low on battery and you don't have a charger handy, you can rely on the iPhone's battery for a quick recharge which eliminates the need to carry an extra battery pack.

According to reports from MacRumors, the USB-C port offers added convenience by allowing the use of a single charging cable for Macs, iPads, iPhones, and various other USB-C accessories.

For iPhone 15 Pro models, the USB-C port also translates to faster USB 3 transfer speeds of up to 10Gb/s, provided you use the appropriate cable. In contrast, iPhone 15 models are limited to USB 2 charging speeds, similar to those of the Lightning port.

The iPhone 15 is offered in three storage variants: 128GB for Rs 79,900, and 256GB, and comes in Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green, and Black color options. The iPhone 15 Plus also has three storage options — 128GB at Rs 89,900, 256GB at Rs 99,900, and 512GB at Rs 1,19,900. It is available in the same color choices.
