Apple unveiled the iPhone 15 devices not too long ago and while these new devices are typical iPhones with crazy performance and a fine finish, the talk of town was Apple’s transition to USB-C, a more versatile port that’s been part of the Android ecosystem for the better part of the past decade.
Ditching the lightening port seems like a harsh transition for many who’ve been living in Apple’s ecosystem for decades and for these people, one question has been on their minds.

Can any USB-C cable charge the new iPhones?
Simply put, Yes! Any Android USB-C cable can charge the iPhone 15. There was a claim that using Android USB-C cables would damage the iPhone 15, but it is not true. There is no chance of damaging your iPhone with an “Android” USB-C cable, any more than there is to damage an Android phone with an Apple cable.
Apple notes that you can charge your iPhone without issues with a USB-C cable and power adapter that complies with the USB-C standard, including USB Power Delivery. They further add that these cables and power adapters are widely available from Apple and other manufacturers.
