It is expected that the iPhone 15 bring big changes in terms of design and features, so rumors and leaks do not stop on the Internet regarding the next Apple cell phones.
As a report published on the website of Tom’s Guideit seems that Apple will finally embrace USB-C charging and ditch the Lightning port. The iPhone 15 is also said to feature a rounded design to make it more comfortable to hold, as well as upgrades to the cameras, chipset, and more.
It also looks like Apple will keep a big split between the regular and Pro models. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to feature a powerful new 3nm A17 Bionic chip and a titanium design, and the Pro Max could boast a new periscope zoom lens.
Next, all that is known.
The iPhone 14 was announced on Wednesday, September 7, and the release date was Friday, September 16, 2022. If Apple were to follow a similar pattern, we could see the presentation of the iPhone 15 on Wednesday, September 6 with a release date of Friday, September 15, 2023.
It has been suggested a $100 price increase for the iPhone 15 Pro. This could be due to more advanced features coming to the next-generation phone, which is why analyst Jeff Pu thinks the price of the iPhone 15 Pro is likely to rise.
If the $100 figure is accurate, the iPhone 15 Pro would be over $1,000, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max would cost as much as a $1,199 Galaxy S23 Ultra.
As for entry-level models, there are no hard numbers, but rumors indicate that Apple could adjust prices to make its lower-cost iPhones more attractive to value-seeking buyers, especially with low sales of the iPhone 14 Plus ($899). ).
Specifications and the expected USB-C
The biggest iPhone 15 design rumor so far is that 2023 It’s the year Apple finally drops the Lightning port on its phones. This isn’t entirely surprising: Not only has the company embraced the connection for its laptops and tablets, but the European Union has officially mandated that all phones must use USB-C by 2024.
After raising the megapixel bar to 48MP on the iPhone 14 Pro models, it is said that the iPhone 15 could finally get a periscope camera for better long-range photography and zoom capabilitiessupposedly along with improved lenses for better quality photos.
On the screens, Apple would stick to form and introduce four models that match current iPhone offerings, with 6.1-inch OLED panels from the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, and 6.7-inch screens from the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max. inches.
However, there could be a slight change to that, since the iPhone 15 could be a 6.2-inch phone. Additionally, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will have dynamic islands instead of notches and all four models in the family will have slightly curved bezels, new leaks say. On the other hand, there could be an addition to this list: an iPhone 15 Ultra.
Finally, adoption of the A17 chipset would have once felt like a certainty, but only the iPhone 14 Pro models benefited from a completely new chipset, while the regular iPhone used a slightly improved version of the A15. iPhone 15 Pro phones are likely to get the A17, while the regular iPhone 15 could get an upgraded version of the A16.
