Rumors from Asia suggest that the upcoming iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus might include USB-C to USB-C cables that are meticulously color-coordinated with the devices.

Amidst the numerous speculations encircling the iPhone 15, we genuinely hope that the particular rumor regarding Apple’s inclusion of a woven USB-C cable within the package holds true.

This isn’t just any ordinary braided USB-C-to-USB-C cable; instead, it’s designed to perfectly complement the hue of the iPhone 15. This, at least, is the assertion from the latest sources of information.

Individuals such as “Majin Bu” on Twitter/X, who has a reputation for revealing details about forthcoming Apple products, an avid Apple collector known as “Kosutami,” and the reliable MacRumors platform, all affirm that color-coordinated USB-C-to-USB-C cables will be part of the package for both the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro variants.

The woven iPhone 15 USB-C cords seem quite alike to the braided Lightning-to-USB-C cable provided by Apple alongside the M1 iMac for powering the Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse/Trackpad – the very cable they don’t offer separately. Kosutami highlights that these robust cords arrive with plastic tubes designed for strain relief, a departure from the woven cable USB-C cords that accompany other Mac models.

A MacRumors image shows the cable in a variety of hues, including black, yellow, pink, blue, and purple. These shades seemingly validate the color choices for the forthcoming iPhone 15; however, they don’t provide insight into the color selection for the iPhone 15 Pro/15 Pro Max.

Label us an utter enthusiast, yet a braided USB-C cable harmonizing with the color scheme would be genuinely pleasing. This sentiment arises from encounters with conventional Apple cables fashioned from TPE material. Regrettably, they fall short, accumulating grime and readily fraying when bent incorrectly on multiple occasions.

The transition between ports on the iPhone 15 models will be both a boon and a bane. One faction will oppose this shift due to the necessity of replacing all their Lightning cables. Conversely, another faction will embrace USB-C as it eliminates one proprietary cable from the equation. Eventually, the change will be embraced by all, reminiscent of our acceptance of Apple’s abandonment of the 30-pin connector for Lightning back in 2012.

Optimistically, the transition to USB-C appears to be more than just a shift in connectors. Speculation suggests that the port on the iPhone 15 Pros will facilitate swifter data transfers—potentially rivaling Thunderbolt speeds. As I have articulated on numerous occasions, this would be highly advantageous for transferring high-resolution ProRAW photos and ProRES videos to a computer for editing.
