The iPhone 14 series was released last week (except for the 14 Plus coming next month) – is it too early to start iPhone 15 rumors? No, those have been going on for a while. LeaksApplePro He just published a bunch of predictions.
All iPhone 15 models are expected to support Lightning to USB-C. That’s no surprise since USB-C is mandatory in the European Union just a few months after the 15-series went on sale.
There may be some changes on the line with the “Pro Max” model being renamed the “Ultra”. Analysts Ming-Chi Kuo and Mark Gurman offer the same idea. It makes sense as it fits better with the Apple M1 and Watch naming schemes. The interesting thing about the iPhone 15 Ultra is that it will have some unique hardware.
8K video recording is an option, although the iPhone 15 Pro can also support it. Kuo also suggests that the Ultra will only have a periscope lens (6x or 5x). Also, the Ultra will have improved battery life, 3-4 hours longer.
With all these special upgrades, the iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to be priced higher than the 14 Pro Max, possibly starting at $1,200 (up from $1,100), but that remains to be seen.
As for the rest of the series, there will be some integration – all four models are expected to adopt a dynamic island design. However, the two pairs still use different levels of chipsets, with the Pro and Ultra models moving to Apple’s new A17, while the vanilla iPhone 15 and 15 Plus can get the current A16.
There has been some speculation that the FaceID hardware could move below the display, leaving only the camera punch hole, but it will be months of development before it’s clear if this technology is viable or if it will have to wait another year.
A possible timeline for moving away from the design for the upcoming iPhones
It’s too early to tell if the vanilla and Plus models will have higher refresh rate displays and always-on modes.
