The iPhone 15 Pro models will feature an increased 8GB of RAM, a USB-C port and multiple camera improvements, according to Taiwanese research company TrendForce.

In a press release today, TrendForce indicates that the iPhone 15 lineup will again consist of four models and that only the two Pro models will get Apple’s latest processor, as was the case with the iPhone 14 lineup. Users can expect that the Pro models are equipped with the A17 Bionic chip, while the standard models would stay with the A16.

TrendForce predicts that the 15 Pro models will be equipped with an increased 8GB of RAM to complement the A17 chip, compared to 6GB on the iPhone 14 Pro models. The standard models will likely still have 6GB of RAM.

The switch from Lightning to USB-C has been widely rumored for iPhones like the European Union passed a law requiring such a change earlier this year.

The Pro models are likely to have an upgraded primary lens with an “8P” design to improve performance, according to TrendForce. Based on previous reports, the research firm expects the iPhone 15 Pro Max to feature a telephoto lens with periscope functionality, allowing 10x optical zoom or higher compared to the current limitation of 3x.

TrendForce says that iPhone 15 models will still be equipped with a Qualcomm modem for 5G because Apple is still not satisfied with the mmWave performance of its internal modem. The research firm believes that Apple will introduce its own 5G modem in 2024.
