Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 lineup will switch to USB Type-C technology. The company, however, appears to be making sure that only certified data cables will be supported.

Due to new EU regulations, Apple is switching from its Lightning port to USB-C to comply with the new regulations. An image shared by tipper Majin Bu reveals certain charging components of the upcoming iPhone 15. Taking a look at the images, it can be seen that a new chipset named 3LD3 is visible.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 models will likely be able to verify and distinguish between Apple-certified cables and third-party adapters using this component. It is also possible that the brand plans to limit certain functions of this chip in addition to the verification process. According to ShrimpApplePro, the third-party cables will have limited data and charging speeds.

Cables that are not certified won’t offer the full benefits of the new ports. Next month, Apple will launch its new iPhone 15 series with the new A17 Bionic chip, thinner bezels, and a titanium frame. Keep an eye out for more information as we will provide updates as soon as it becomes available.
