Although Apple had previously confirmed that these devices support USB 3, this latest disclosure provides clarity on the exact specification. It’s important to mention that the USB-C cable that comes with iPhone 15 Pro models only supports USB 2 speeds, so if you desire faster data transfer, you’ll need to invest in a higher-spec cable.

As previously reported, the document confirms that all iPhone 15 models support DisplayPort, allowing for impressive 4K HDR video mirroring on an external display or TV. This can be achieved with a compatible USB-C to DisplayPort cable or an appropriate adapter. However, it’s important to note that, unlike certain iPad models equipped with Stage Manager, the iPhone does not support an extended display mode.
