As usual, Apple’s next iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are anticipated to be unveiled in September. At least six exclusive features won’t be found on the basic iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, according to the latest speculations.
A17 chip: The iPhone 15 Pro versions will use an A17 Bionic processor, which offers performance and efficiency advantages, built using TSMC’s second-generation 3nm process, according to the Japanese daily Nikkei Asia. According to the source, 2023 may be the second year in a row that Apple’s newest chip is exclusively available in the Pro versions of its new iPhone lineup.
According to analyst Jeff Pu and a leaker going by the handle “ShrimpApplePro,” the iPhone 15 Pro’s frames will be composed of titanium, similar to the Apple Watch Ultra.
Faster USB-C port: According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone 15 Pro models will have a USB-C port that supports at least USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3. This will enable the devices to transfer data much more quickly than previous iPhones with Lightning cables. According to Kuo, the USB-C port on the basic iPhone 15 models would only support USB 2.0 speeds, same like the Lightning port.
Increased RAM: According to Taiwanese research firm TrendForce, the iPhone 15 Pro versions will feature an additional 8GB of RAM, but the ordinary models are expected to keep their present 6GB of RAM. Apps like Safari may be able to keep more content active in the background with more RAM, avoiding the need to reload content when the programme is accessed.
Solid-state buttons: Kuo claims that the volume and power buttons on the iPhone 15 Pro variants will be solid-state. According to the analyst, the gadgets would include two more Taptic Engines, which imitate the impression of hitting buttons without really moving them, much like the Home button on the most recent iPhone SE or the trackpad on more recent MacBooks.
Increased optical zoom for the iPhone 15 Pro Max: According to Kuo, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a periscope telephoto lens. Due to this, the gadget might have a minimum 6x optical zoom, as opposed to the 3x current iPhone 14 Pro variants.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, might be called the iPhone 15 Ultra, just like the Apple Watch Ultra.
Since there are still many months before Apple officially unveils the iPhone 15 series, it’s possible that the devices will get more capabilities, so the information we currently have is merely a sneak peek at what to anticipate later this year.
