The iPhone 15 series was launched on September 13 at Apple’s “Wanderlust” event. One of the big changes to the company’s flagship lineup this year was the inclusion of USB Type-C charging ports, similar to those on several Android smartphones. However, if you’re wondering about using the Android cable to charge the iPhone 15 lineup, an Apple reseller has reportedly warned against the practice. According to a previous report, the USB Type-C port on the latest iPhone series supports multiple functions.
The iPhone 15 lineup – including a base variant, the iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max – debuted at Apple’s launch event on September 13. The smartphones feature significant changes from their predecessors in terms of specifications. With this series, the company also introduced USB Type-C port on all recently launched Apple devices, like several Android smartphones.
However, if users are considering using an Android cable on iPhone products, an Apple reseller in China has warned not to do so. According to a report on Chinese website CNMO, an Apple store in Foshan city, Guangdong province, China, posted a post asking iPhone users to avoid using the USB Type charging cable -C from Android on Apple smartphones, as this could burn the devices.
The report also mentions that several users consider it a trick to ensure that buyers buy original Apple charging cables, in order to increase their income. It is worth noting that Apple has already mentioned on its support page that users can use a standard USB Type-C cable to charge their recently launched iPhones.
As a reminder, Apple’s new USB Type-C port claims to deliver 15 times more power than the Lightning port’s 0.3W output. The company offers a USB 2 compatible cable in the box with the purchase of iPhone 15 Pro smartphones. For better data transfer speed, users can purchase an optional USB-3 compatible cable from the company’s online, offline and reseller stores.
