Can using an Android cable to charge the iPhone 15 cause damage to the device?

Apple released the iPhone 15 series for its users in September. This series included four smartphones iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max.


Along with this series, the company has removed the previous lightning port and provided USB C charging facility. That’s why people are wondering whether the Android cable can be used to charge the iPhone 15 series or not.

Does iPhone get damaged when charging via Android cable?

A new iPhone can be charged using an Android USB C cable. Some videos have even gone viral claiming that charging the iPhone 15 using an Android USB C cable will damage the device.

According to a report by Gizmo China, Apple stores in China have advised users not to use Android chargers on the iPhone 15. They say that it will increase the overheating.

This is not completely accurate because not all devices have specific standards for USB C cables. The Android Echo Charger can charge any device, including the new iPhone 15 series models.

In the past, people have charged the iPad Air, iPad Pro, and MacBook using a third-party USB-C cable. Therefore, these cables can definitely charge the iPhone 15 model.

The reason why the iPhone brings this feature is to allow the iPhone to be charged using the Android USB C charging cable. However, Apple is said to have a different use case for the USB C port on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models, as you get USB C 2.0 and USB C 3.2 standards.

Simply put, using an Android phone’s USB cable makes no difference to an iPhone because you’ll only get the speed set by Apple for the new iPhone.
