Updated August 22, 2023There is now more information about the possible charging cable supplied with the iPhone 15. According to the same source who also shared information about the color and material of the included charging cable, the cable will also be much longer. While Apple usually provides a 1-meter cable, this new cable will be 1.5 meters long. This is half the time. This also makes it easier to use your iPhone while charging, especially if your socket is a little further away.
Below is the original article from August 21st
Even though you haven’t gotten an iPhone charger with a new iPhone in years, Apple still provides a charging cable. This is still a standard Lightning cable, but it’s going to be different this year with the iPhone 15. First, you’ll get a USB-C to USB-C cable, because the Lightning port is gone. But if we are to believe the rumors, Apple is taking the opportunity to change even more with the included charging cable for the iPhone 15.
iPhone 15 charging cable, braided and colored
Delicious rumour @MajinBuOfficial Involved X (Twitter) has a series of images of a possible leaked iPhone 15 charging cable. Other sources as well He says iPhone 15 will be delivered with a matching colored charging cable, with a braided cord. Images of the pink, blue, black, purple, and yellow versions have surfaced, though sources say Apple will only release the white, black, yellow, purple, and orange versions.
There are a few things that stand out about these cables. First of all, it concerns USB-C to USB-C versions. Lightning will almost certainly disappear and give way to USB-C, so it only makes sense that Apple would also provide another cable. The second thing that stands out is that it is a braided cable. Apple already makes braided USB-C cables and provides them as standard with recent iPads. But with the iPhone, you can currently still get by with a regular cable. The advantage of braided versions is that they break less quickly.
The colored cables are similar to those on HomePod mini
The third thing that stands out is the colors. Apple already has the black and white charging cables and also sells them separately. Apple is also experienced with colored versions of these cables. The MagSafe to USB-C cable that you get with recent MacBooks also has the same color as the MacBook in question. However, the colors that can now be seen in the images more closely match the colored cables of the HomePod mini. This cable is also available in orange, yellow, and blue, although it only has one USB-C end. The other end is stuck to the HomePod mini.
So the question is whether the colored cables in the photos are actually new iPhone 15 charging cables, or are they refurbished HomePod mini cables. But since Apple has been supplying matching colored cables more often lately, we wouldn’t be surprised if this also happens with the iPhone.
There were also rumors about the colors of the iPhone 15. Pink, green and yellow were mentioned for the standard models, in addition to light blue and the standard colors midnight, starlight and red. For the Pro models, there’s talk of blue, silver, space gray or space black and titanium gray. It is not yet clear if they will also receive a matching colored charging cable.
