  • The answer depends on what version of USB Chip is in your PC, the cable plays a part, as does the iOS device. If your PC is USB 3.1, then the USB-C-->lightening cable connected to a iPhone 8/x will be ~10 Gbits/s. Not quite sure, but I believe an iPhone 7 would transfer at ~5 Gbit/s.

    * earlier than 2010 - USB 2.0 - High Speed, 280 Mbit/s or 35 MB/s (effective)
    * after 2010 - USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 - SuperSpeed, 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s)
    * after 2016 - USB 3.1 Gen 2 - SuperSpeed+, 10 Gbit/s (1250 MB/s)
