iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro: Every September, Apple has an event when they announce information about the upcoming iPhone, which is then released a few days later.
Later this year, Apple will introduce the new iPhone 15 series. For months, rumors have been circulating about the design and functionality of the upcoming smartphones. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro are anticipated to include a number of intriguing features, just like their predecessors. The information below summarizes what we currently know about the iPhone 15 series in case you decide to upgrade your iPhone in 2023.
Apple is said to introduce four new gadgets that are similar to the iPhone 14 series. According to experts, there will be two 6.1-inch and two 6.7-inch variants in the iPhone 15 range. There will be two variants of the iPhone 15 Pro series: a 6.1-inch iPhone Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max. The regular iPhone will have a 6.1-inch iPhone 15 and a 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus.
Premium titanium build
If rumors are to be believed, the Apple Watch Ultra’s design may be used for the iPhone 15 Pro. It’s possible that Apple will adopt a titanium frame similar to the one found on the Apple Watch Ultra to make the iPhone 15 Pro lighter and more robust. After all, compared to stainless steel and aluminum, titanium is far lighter and stronger.
Dynamic Island on all four models
According to rumors, the Dynamic Island shape-shifting cutout from the iPhone 14 Pro will be featured on all models in the next iPhone 15 series. The basic iPhone 15 models won’t likely feature a greater refresh rate than Apple’s Pro iPhones, though.
Periscope-style zoom lens
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 15 Pro Max would feature a telephoto lens in the periscope design. Higher optical zoom capabilities are possible with this kind of telephoto lens, and Kuo anticipates that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a 6x optical zoom. The iPhone 14 Pro Max’s optical zoom is currently capped at 3x. The periscope lens is already included in Samsung’s premium models.
Power efficient 3nm processor
The new A17 Bionic chip, which is rumored to be manufactured using TSMC’s 3nm technology, is expected to power the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Similarly, the next iPhones are believed to use a more efficient ultra-wideband (U2) processor than the first-generation U1.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, on the other hand, are expected to employ the older A16 Bionic chipset seen in the iPhone 14 Pro. All four iPhone 15 versions may include a new 5G modem with better wireless data transmission rates, like as Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
USB Type-C port for faster data transfer
The charging port is considered to be one of the most significant upgrades for the iPhone 15 series. Apple may eventually replace the lightning connector with a USB Type-C port that allows for better data transfer speeds. According to reports, Apple will restrict fast charging on these devices to MFi-certified Type-C cords. While any USB Type-C cable may charge an iPhone 15 version, only an Apple-certified cable is likely to provide fast charging.
Price hike seem almost certain
Due to rising manufacturing costs, it appears that Apple will raise the price of the iPhone 15. Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives expects that the average selling price for Apple’s next-generation iPhones will rise, resulting in a higher price tag for the iPhone 15 range compared to current models. Notably, with the exception of the United States, the price of the iPhone 14 increased in overseas regions. Indeed, industry analysts predict price increases of up to $200, with the high-end iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models expected to see the greatest increases.
