The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models have an upgraded rear camera system that can capture 48-megapixel ProRAW photos, which preserves more detail in the image file for greater editing flexibility. 48-megapixel ProRAW photos are very large files, which Apple estimates are about 75MB each, and sometimes even larger.
Despite these very large image sizes, we’ve confirmed that the Lightning connector on the iPhone 14 Pro models will be limited to USB 2.0 speeds of up to 480 Mbps like previous models, meaning transferring full-resolution 48-megapixel ProRAW photos. to a Mac or other device with a Lightning cable takes a long time.
Apple recommends using iCloud Photos to open full-resolution ProRAW files on a Mac or other Apple devices, or transferring photos wirelessly from an iPhone using AirDrop, but the Lightning connector definitely remains a bottleneck .
Back in 2015, the Lightning connector of the original iPad Pro supported USB 3.0, which at the time was capable of 5 Gbps speeds based on its specs, but Apple has clearly chosen not to go in this direction for the iPhone. Fortunately, rumors suggest that all iPhone 15 models will be equipped with a USB-C port instead of Lightning, which should result in speeds of up to 10 Gbps or even 40 Gbps with Thunderbolt 3 support.
