The iPhone 15 Ultra puts an end to the 6.1-inch super premium iPhone (users react strongly to Apple’s plan)

You did it right (if you did): Apple’s 2023 iPhone 15 lineup is sure to disappoint those who like compact iPhones (sort of) with premium features…

After killing off the iPhone mini in September, Apple’s witch hunt seems to continue, at least if the leaks are to be believed. Speaking of leaks and rumours, multiple sources with years of experience as analysts are now evaluating The great surprise of Cupertino.Apple is now set to release the first iPhone Ultra in about ten months time, and while this sounds like great news for all the power users who wanted a super-mega-hyper-premium phone with iOS and the Apple logo on it’s back , the arrival of the Ultra is about to hit other users in unexpected ways…

Rumor has it, the new iPhone 15 Ultra will absolutely be the best iPhone 15 in Apple’s 2023 lineup, and before you roll your eyes and think, “sure, the sky is blue,” let me tell you that an iPhone 15 Ultra too could It spells the end of Apple’s super-premium 6.1-inch iPhone!

The new iPhone 15 Ultra takes the place of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, but it’s not just a name change

To get straight to the point, the iPhone 14 Pro will likely be the last top-of-the-line 6.1-inch iPhone, and that… sucks (more on why later).

The iPhone 15 Ultra is now expected to bring a new periscope zoom camera for long-zoom photos and videos and possibly a rear redesign, which, combined with a bigger battery (which could get bigger and bigger) and a bigger screen, it could end up making the iPhone 15 Ultra a completely different beast of a phone than the iPhone 15 Pro! As mentioned in several previous stories, Apple’s approach to model differentiation has varied over the years:

  • iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max were essentially the same phone (aside from the Max’s larger screen and battery)
  • iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max were also identical in hardware and features
  • The iPhone 12 Pro Max had a larger main camera sensor and a longer-range zoom camera than the iPhone 12 Pro.
  • iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are identical when it comes to specs
  • iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also practically the same phone

So yes, Cupertino tried this trick before, and that left many iPhone fans somewhat disappointed. I wasn’t writing at the time, but I remember the comments condemning Apple’s decision to save the best for the larger iPhone 12 Pro Max. So eventually, as noted above, Tim Cook & Co redeemed itself and went back to the old strategy of giving the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhones the exact same feature set/hardware upgrades.

Fast-forward a few years, though, and now it seems like Apple just can’t resist entering the Ultra flagship market race – unsurprisingly, it won’t just be a name change, but a broader change in strategy.

Going backwards? The iPhone 15 Ultra could end Apple’s eternal flagship dominance over Samsung and Google

The problem with the iPhone 15 Ultra that it has ultra-exclusive features, you ask?

Well, I (and millions of other people who buy 6.1-inch Pro iPhones) don’t want to have to carry a brick of a phone in their pockets to get the absolute best performance out of the iPhone, especially when the camera and design features are at the line.

i have been using a iPhone 13mini for almost half a year, and I can’t praise this phone enough for being the most practical iPhone I’ve ever used. I always knew I preferred more compact phones, but after using the Pixel 6 Pro for almost a year, switching to the iPhone 13 mini felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders or, rather, my hands and pockets.

Speaking of size differences, I’m now using the iPhone 14 Pro next to Pixel 7 Pro, and the size difference is quite noticeable. In fact, I would have loved to Google to make a super-premium 6.1-inch Pixel 7 Pro, but as of now, Apple remains the only phone maker to offer compact premium phones with little to no compromise compared to bigger, heavier versions of the same device.

The strong reaction of iPhone users to the possible decision of Apple to make exclusive premium hardware upgrades for the iPhone 15 Ultra

Apple’s alleged decision to differentiate the iPhone 15Ultra of the smallest iPhone 15 Pro giving it extra features could backfire, with some users taking it on Twitter to express their disapproval of yet another “iPhone 12 Pro Max” situation.

Here are some of the comments below analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s tweet, breaking the news of Apple’s plans to make the iPhone 15 Ultra different from the smaller Pro:

Titanium iPhone 15 Ultra with an all-new design: Apple’s secret plan to make the first iPhone Ultra appealing to those with smaller hands and pockets?

I don’t know about you, but I would only be interested in an iPhone 15 Ultra if Apple manages to significantly reduce the weight. How? Titanium!

Apple has been rumored and expected to eventually switch to using titanium for manufacturing its premium iPhones for years. More recently, it was Jon Prosser who was wrong in predicting that the iPhone 14 Pro would have a titanium frame, but the Twitter leak LeakApplePro now the rumor fire has started again telling us the The iPhone 15 Ultra will be made of titanium (at least the phone frame anyway)!

What’s interesting is that even if Apple opts for a titanium frame, Cupertino should consider a bigger redesign if the Ultra wants to get anything. lighter. The iPhone 14 Pro Max weighs 240g, holding the record for the highest weight-to-size ratio of any mainstream premium flagship (at 206g, even my iPhone 14 Pro is too heavy for its relatively compact size).

So simply switching to a titanium frame might not be enough to offset the weight gain expected to come from the iPhone 15 Ultra’s new periscope zoom camera hardware and possibly a larger battery.

In case you’re wondering, this could also be the biggest hint at a major redesign both on the outside and inside of the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Ultra, which is exactly what could make it work, look. and it feels different than the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro.

Will the expected sedimentation of the new Apple model work well? Are you excited about the iPhone 15 Ultra? Leave a comment below!
