Please note that the iPhone 15 series comes with a USB-C cable. Regarding the reason why Apple sells USB-C cables at the official store even though the iPhone 15 series comes with a USB-C cable, iFixit says, ``The cable that comes with the iPhone 15 series may not support fast charging. I'm

guessing that there isn't.

In October 2022, the European Parliament passed a bill requiring all smartphones, tablets, and cameras sold in the EU to be equipped with a USB-C port by the end of 2024, requiring Apple to include a USB-C port. There was pressure on the company to release a new iPhone. However, the EU's regulations regarding USB-C compatibility do not include standards for USB-C cables. For this reason, it has been pointed out that although the iPhone 15 series is equipped with a USB-C port, it may not support fast charging or high-speed communication.
