Fresh revelations have clarified that a 3LD3 chip was seen on the USB-C port board in the iPhone 15, which may regulate certain functions. Analysts from ChargerLAB did a more detailed study and provided photos of this port on the iPhone 15.
The resulting images show a board that has a USB-C port installed. According to experts, these images represent engineering prototypes of the iPhone 15 in various versions: standard, Plus and Pro. The boards show a Retimer chip located right above the USB-C connector. Typically, such processors are present in Thunderbolt-compatible devices to provide high quality I / O data.
