APPLE will unveil the iPhone 15 series this year in the second half. While leaks have reported that the upcoming handsets will finally adopt a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer, there is more peculiar stuff on the tables. The iPhone 15 Pro may ship with Thunderbolt 3 port, claims @analyst941 on Twitter.
As per Forbes, the same tipster leaked information about the Dynamic Island in the iPhone 14 Pro before its launch. Further, the Twitter account adds that iOS 17 would have Thunderbolt 4 features. But it will be released after the 15 series debuts officially. It is reserved for the Pro model, 941 adds.
“The port on Pro’s will be Thunderbolt 3, I know there’s a lot of speculation in our community but it’s TB3. There will be special Thunderbolt 4 features in iOS 17, but this won’t see the light of day till iP15 Pro releases because it’s reserved to them,” @analyst941 tweeted.
Big news includes a (rumoured) new cinematography mode that could allow live 4K footage transmission to monitors during recording. “Essentially, you’ll have the phone with all the camera controls, connected to a monitor displaying live 4K camera footage without any controls; in 16:9. It’s Niche,” the tipster writes.
How fast is Thunderbolt 3?
Thunderbolt 3 has speeds up to 40 Gbps. It is more than double the speed of USB 3.1, which has up to 10Gbps transfer rates. As per Thunderbolt technology blog, it supports the transfer of a 4K movie in under 30 seconds and the functionality to connect two 4K displays.
