Apple launched its new iPhone 15 lineup on September 12, at the Wonderlust event. The company announced various new additions and improvements to the new generation including the transition to the USB-C type charging port, from the old Lightning port, on all the newly launched devices. Now, as per recent reports, Apple is urging iPhone 15 users to use USB-C cables that meet safety regulations to keep their new iPhone safe. Know more about the warning here.
iPhone 15 USB-C cables safety regulations
According to a report by Express UK, iPhone 15 owners are being advised to remain extremely cautious while using a USB-C cable, as it could lead to severe damage to their device if it does not meet the stringent Apple safety guidelines. USB-C charging port is a first for all iPhones and many users may not be aware of the consequences of using a charger that is not compatible.
According to a New Times report, all USB-C cables are not all similar. The iPhone’s Lightning cable for example has two chips, one of which has Apple authentication, and the other acts as a fuse that isolates damage to the charger and iPhone during electricity fluctuations. In terms of USB-C cables, all cables are not built with the same protection mechanisms and some cheap chargers can actually damage an iPhone 15.
