This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: We always expect Apple silicon to make our smartphones faster, but iPhone 15 could be a speed demon in unsuspected ways. Like, it might deliver 80 times faster data transfers through the port that replaces Lightning. Anyone who moves large files around should be thrilled with the latest iPhone 15 rumor. And that’s not all …

Also on The CultCast:

  • iPhone 15 might charge at extreme speeds, too.
  • Why is iPhone 14 taking a beating over its battery life?
  • Next year’s Apple Watch X could bring the major redesign we’ve all been waiting for.
  • Erfon does a surprise live unboxing of a great gift sent in by a CultCast listener.
