IT appears the new iPhone 15 has hit another stumbling block, with users reporting the device doesn’t work with some battery packs.

Apple added a USB-C charging port to the iPhone 15 lineup this year, retiring the classic Lightning cable.

The iPhone 15 boasts two-way charging, which means that it can be used to boost the battery of an Apple Watch, AirPods, or another ‌iPhone‌ through the USB-C port

But some USB-C power banks are reportedly not compatible with the iPhone 15.

“So I picked up my iPhone 15 Pro Max this morning, and since I wasn’t going home I figured I would bring my Anker PowerCore Slim 10K PD and charge it that way,” one customer wrote on a MacRumours forum.

“Unfortunately, when plugging it in with the USB C cable, the iPhone decides to charge the Anker instead of the other way around.”

However, it means that with some UCB-C battery packs, they end up draining the phone’s battery instead of restoring it, MacRumours first reported.

On Reddit, another user tried to figure out how to reverse it: “I plugged my iPhone 15 Pro into this brand new Anker power band and the power bank is drawing power from the iPhone.

“How do I switch it to provide power to the iPhone?”

But few had advice that extended beyond buying a different charging bank.

Most USB-C power banks with Power Delivery seem to be working as intended, according to MacRumors.

However, iPhone 15‌ owners should be aware that some could be incompatible.

Earlier this week, it was reported that iPhone 15 Pro models may also be suffering with an overheating problem.

“The natural titanium iPhone 15 Pro gets extremely hot, so much so that it becomes difficult to hold,” engineer turned tech content creator Mohit Verma wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

“It heats up after just a two-minute FaceTime call or when scrolling through reels for eight-10 minutes.

“This is a new issue for me, as I’ve never encountered this with any previous phone.”

Videos from tech content creators saw their iPhone 15 Pro models reaching temperature highs of 42 degrees Celcius.

While the long-awaited Apple devices were unveiled just two weeks ago, some customers have been disappointed with the performance so far.
