Though the next iPhone lineup – the iPhone 15 series – is months away, there have been a number of leaks shared regarding them till now.
Most of them are exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro models, except for the mandatory USB-C port for all. This, too, has been altered to make the regular iPhone models slow while boosting the Pro models. Well, here are more details regarding it and others;
iPhone 15 Pro Exclusive Features
Observing the roaring success of iPhone 14 Pro models against their regular counterparts, Apple would want to try to continue this momentum with its upcoming generation, too – the iPhone 15 Series.
While it won’t be launching until September next year, we have a number of features leaked that say iPhone 15 Pro models are much more exclusive than their regular models. Here are they;
A17 Bionic Chip
Apple will supposedly put its latest mobile chip – the A17 Bionic in its iPhone 15 Pro models while letting the regular counterparts settle with the A16 Bionic series. This marks the second year in a row where only the Pro models of the new iPhone lineup feature Apple’s latest chip.
A17 Bionic is made on TSMC’s second-generation 3nm process and provides increased performance and efficiency than its predecessors.
According to reports, the Pro models will have a USB-C port that’s either USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 – providing faster data transfer speeds, against the regular USB-C (USB 2.0 type), which will be used in the regular iPhone 15 models.
Reports suggest that Apple will bump up the RAM storage of the iPhone 15 Pro to up to 8GB RAM, while the standard models will likely continue to have 6GB RAM, as they do currently. This increased RAM on Pro models will allow apps like Safari to keep more content active in the background, preventing apps from reloading content, etc.
Solid State Buttons
Earlier reports suggested that the iPhone 15 Pro models will have solid-state volume and power buttons – replacing the physical buttons. These will provide haptic feedback without moving physically – similar to the Home button in iPhone 5S.
Increased Optical Zoom
Finally, the high-end handset of this upcoming series – iPhone 15 Pro Max, will reportedly feature a periscope telephoto lens – letting the device shoot at a 10x optical zoom, which is 3x more compared to the iPhone 14 Pro models.
