if everything goes According to Apple’s plan, the iPhone 15 (and 15 Plus, 15 Pro, 15 Pro Max) should be on track for a fall 2023 release.

You may be thinking that it’s too soon to start talking about the iPhone 15 when the iPhone 14s Y Advantages of the iPhone 14 it just came out last month, but the rumor mill is still fueling speculation. Maybe you didn’t update to the latest iPhone 14s or need to know what’s coming because you’re an early adopter. Wherever you are, we’ve rounded up everything we know about the iPhone 15s.

Will the iPhone 15 replace Lightning with USB-C? Will the iPhone 15 Pro Max finally get a better 10x zoom lens? How much will the iPhone 15 cost? You have questions and we have answers. Let’s get informed.

How many iPhone 15 models are coming?

Since iPhone 12, Apple has released four new models each year. The iPhone 12 and 13 came in normal, mini, Pro and Pro Max models. The iPhone 14 ditched the mini and replaced it with an “iPhone 14 Plus” while keeping the others. We expect Apple to release the iPhone 15 in the same models as the iPhone 14.

Apple’s iPhone 15 lineup should look like this:

  • iPhone 15 (6.1 inches)
  • iPhone 15 plus (6.7 inches)
  • iPhone 15 Pro (6.1 inches)
  • iPhone 15 ProMax (6.7 inches)

Which iPhone 15 models will have Dynamic Island?

Display often accurate Display Supply Chain Consultants CEO Ross Young claims that Apple will put the Dynamic Islandcurrently exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, in everybody iPhone 15 models.

“Yes, Dynamic Island expected on ’15 standard models,” Young wrote in a tweet. “I don’t expect 120Hz/LTPO on standard models yet as the supply chain can’t support it.”

The second part of Young’s tweet suggests that even if the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus get Dynamic Island, they could be limited to a slower refresh rate. Currently, the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus have 60Hz refresh rates. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have 120Hz refresh rates with LTPO, which means they can go down to 1Hz; LTPO is essential for always-on display mode. If Apple doesn’t add LTPO to non-Pro iPhone 15 displays, they may not get an always-on display.

What chip and how much RAM will the iPhone 15 have?

according to a TrendForce ReportApple will once again reserve its next-generation custom silicon, tentatively dubbed the “A17 Bionic” chip, for the pro versions of the iPhone 15. Regular non-pro iPhone 15s will reportedly get the A16 Bionic chip that’s in the current iPhone. . 14 professionals

As for RAM, TrendForce predicts that the iPhone 15s will come with 6GB of RAM and the iPhone 15 Pros will have 8GB of RAM. The extra RAM in the iPhone 15 Pros should give them more bandwidth to process large ProRAW photo files and ProRES video, but that will also mean higher price tags.

Will the iPhone 15 Pro camera have a better zoom?

Improvements to the cameras on the new iPhones are pretty much a given now, even if they’re subtle changes through a “Photonic Engine” pipeline. While we’d love to see Apple do the Increasing camera bumps on iPhone 15s flush with the rear, that’s unlikely to happen next year.

Apple is more likely to improve the camera with a better sensor and improve image quality. According to the TrendForce report, the iPhone 15 could have an additional eighth optical element for the main lens, which would help improve image details.

Furthermore, the report claims that the iPhone 15 Pro Max could come with a 10x optical zoom (a big jump from the 3x optical zoom of the iPhone 14 Pro Max). This 10x zoom would use a similar periscope lens design that many Android phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, have been using for years.

Apple added autofocus to the selfie cameras on the iPhone 14s. Could the front camera of the iPhone 15s be further improved? We hope so!

Will the iPhone 15 have a USB-C port?

All reports seem to agree that Apple will finally bring USB-C to the iPhone 15. It’s about time, but we should thank the European Union for pushing Apple to adopt the universal standard.

More recently, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Greg Joswiak, said during a Wall Street Journal Live Tech They say that the company has no choice but to comply with the EU ruling. Of course, there’s always the chance that Apple will only release a USB-C iPhone for Europe, so keep your expectations in check.

Joswiak’s “confirmation” left room for interpretation and created more questions than answers.

The most important question is whether the USB-C port will support Thunderbolt or not. A USB-C port for charging is something everyone seems to want, but Thunderbolt support could open up the iPhone 15 to much faster data transfers and even support for external monitors. It would be great news if Apple brought Stage Manager to the iPhone connected to a display; it could work similarly to Samsung’s DeX mode.

Will the iPhone 15 have “solid state” power and volume buttons?

This one is really new, but it wouldn’t be surprising. If you know the history of your iPhone, you know that Apple replaced the mechanical home button with a “solid state” one, beginning with the iPhone 7 (and continuing through the iPhone 8/SE 2 and SE 3). Well, TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple may use the same technology to replace the power and volume buttons on “two high-end iPhone 15s,” in other words, the iPhone 15 Pros.

“There will be Taptic motors located on the inner left and right sides to provide force feedback so users feel like they are pressing physical buttons.” kuo tweeted. “Due to this design change, the number of Taptic Engines used in each iPhone will increase from the current one to three. As a result, existing Taptic Engine providers Luxshare ICT (first provider) and AAC Technologies (second provider) will be major beneficiaries.”

Kuo’s supply chain controls are often tight. Apple plans new iPhones years in advance, so playing around in the supply chain is often a telltale sign of what Apple is preparing.

How much will the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 cost?

Apple did not raise the price of any of the iPhone 14 models. That could change for the iPhone 15. The current starting prices for the iPhone 14 are below. Any increase could be between $100 and $200.

  • iPhone 14: $799
  • iPhone 14 plus: $899
  • iPhone 14 Pro: $999
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: $1,099

When will Apple launch the iPhone 15?

Apple launches new iPhones in the fall. Assuming the supply chain isn’t backed up, we expect Apple to announce the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro at an event in early to mid-September 2023 with a release date later in the month.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro were announced on September 7, 2022. Apple did a staggered release: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max launched on September 16, but iPhone 14 Plus arrived later on October 7.
