Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: Apple Silicone Case Must be Removed to Connect USB-C Cable

re: iPhone 15 Pro Max

Not only does USB 3 not work with a wide variety of cables, I can’t even plug one in with the Apple Silicone Case on the phone. Or rather, I can, but it won’t connect more than momentarily—the case exerts enough pressure to keep the cable from remaining in contact—totally unusable with the case on.

How do you build and offer a product so ill-conceived that you have to remove the case to be able to plug-in any and every USB-C and Thunderbolt cable I have? On top of shipping a USB 2.0 cable with a $2000 phone. Total dick move on both counts.

Maybe that’s why Apple shipped a poor quality cable—so they could make their 90% profit margin on a shitty overpriced phone case with a cable that fits it (rather than correctly designing the case), while saving another few bucks on a USB2 cable so flimsy and cheaply-made it is sure to fail quickly. Follow the money.

Time for an Exacto knife @AMAZON to destructively modify this half-assed Apple phone case.

UPDATE: an early Thanksgiving: using a razor sharp knife, I rotated the blade around the cable entry hole of the phone case, carving off enough material that I can fairly reliable get the USB-C cable to seat properly now. Maybe the Apple Silicone case should ship with a razor blade?

Below, all these cables all ought to allow an iPhone 15 Pro Max to connect with USB 3 speeds.
