New iPhone model sports USB-C charging port

Apple leadership unveiled the new iPhone 15 models Tuesday at the company’s annual keynote event in California. The new line-up includes three models above the basic iPhone. They will go on sale Sept. 22, ranging in cost from $800 to $2,000. The new model uses a USB-C charging port rather than the lightning adapter ports Apple has used for over a decade. Apple confirmed it is also re-releasing the Airpod Pro Second Generation with a USB-C port, allowing users to charge other Apple devices with the same cable.

What else did Apple announce? Apple leaders said all plastic will be removed from their packaging by 2024 and said the Apple Watch Ultra 2 would be the company’s first “carbon-neutral” product. Apple said the watch is a major step in its goal of making the entire company carbon neutral by 2030.
