The iPhone 15 series, which is expected to be released in the fall of 2023, has an active rumor mill promoting a variety of new features.
TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects a periscope-style telephoto lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The iPhone 15 Pro Max may have a 6x optical zoom thanks to this telephoto lens.
In 2023, Apple may convert from Lightning Port to USB-C port, a long-rumored move. The bloc mandated that iPhones have USB-C connectors by 2024 in 2022.
Apple may sell four iPhone models with the iPhone 15 lineup. The iPhone 14 Pro's Dynamic Island cutout is expected to appear on all versions.
The solid-state buttons, which Kuo predicts will be like the iPhone SE and iPhone 7's home buttons, will use haptic feedback to simulate pushing a button.
TrendForce, a Taiwanese research group, predicts that the iPhone 15 Pro's RAM would increase to 8GB from 6GB to match the A17 Bionic chipset. TrendForce reports 6GB RAM for base devices.
According to Revengus, the iPhone 15 Ultra will have a telephoto camera with a variable zoom lens, similar to the camera configuration anticipated for Samsung's Galaxy S24 Ultra.
