There is a variety of appealing iPhone 15 colors. A Barbie pink model has captivated the hearts of many users on Twitter.
The iPhone 15 is expected to remove the Lightning port in favor of USB-C as the standard. This is likely to be the result of changing EU standards for charging.
According to a recent article from Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, Apple is hoping to launch an iphone 15 announcement for the iPhone 15 on either September 13 or 12, and release it a week later. It’s consistent with the previous iPhone launches and is the typical timeframe for when new iPhones are released.
Certain changes are planned, including a different colors and better cameras on the Pro models. A few reports suggest Pro Max could get a periscopic camera that can provide six times the optical zoom.
The Pro models are likely to also keep this 120Hz refresh rate which was first introduced by the iPhone 13 Pro. Furthermore, the ‘Pro Max’ model might have one physical button that has tactile feedback that can perform multiple functions like muting, accessibility options and flashlight activation. It can also be used to activate concentration mode and even opening the app. It will also work as a power switch, which allows fast charging. The iPhone 15 will no longer be able to use its Lightning connector. This will instead be replaced with a USB-C connection.
There are a few significant tech upgrades that are planned for the iPhone 15. According to rumors, the Pro as well as Max/Ultra versions are expected to move to Lightning into USB-C ports. The change is believed to be necessary for compliance with EU laws, however Apple may be also looking to reduce component costs.
Furthermore, the rumor mill suggests that all iPhone 15 models will retain their 120 Hz refresh rate. Apple will reportedly tweak the display driver chip in order in order to make it more efficient and energy-efficient and will result in better battery performance.
As for other modifications the leaked CAD picture indicates that the mute button could be replaced by the single, multi-use Action button like in the Apple Watch Ultra. This button will be programmable and will be able to perform different actions like activating accessibility features, changing the audio mode, opening the camera application, lighting the flashlight on, activating concentration mode, or running shortcuts. The phone could have a periscopic camera with an up to 6 times optical zoom.
If you’re looking to cut costs and put off buying until after it’s official that the iPhone 15 series is launched in September, you might get an older model at a retailer or a service provider. Apple often pulls off old models once it’s announced new models however, so you might be able to find one for an affordable price.
However the likelihood is that you’ll have to pay more for the Pro or Max model this year. According to reports, the phones will feature an upgraded chip, better cameras (including the latest telephoto lens for Pro Max) Pro Max), and titanium designs with Frosted glass.
In addition, a Barclays analyst has suggested that the smartphones could cost as much as $100 to $200 more costly than the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max respectively. Based on data he’s obtained from companies that supply chain from Asia. If the report proves to be accurate, it could be a major blow to Apple’s business.
