The forthcoming iPhone 15 Ultra will have a larger display, battery, and camera, according to a leak. 8K video recording could come to the iPhone 15 Ultra but not the Pro.
Apple is likely to replace only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra’s chipsets this year. The anticipated iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to employ the A16 Bionic processor. Only Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have this processor.
Apple reportedly hopes to enhance battery life next year. Apple wants 3-4 hours better battery life on its largest phone, according to a leak. New phone prices may rise. iPhone 14 Pro Max costs $1,099 in the US. iPhone 15 Ultra could cost $1,199 next year.
The leak says Apple’s upcoming iPhones will have USB-C. Apple abandoning its Lightning ecosystem on every device would be a cataclysmic change. The EU has demanded that every manufacturer, including Apple, implement USB-C by 2024.
Apple’s iPhone 15 could replace Lightning with USB-C
More transistors can fit on a chip with a smaller process node. Higher transistor counts make chips more powerful and energy-efficient. Apple is apparently researching a technique to relocate the True Depth Camera (used for Face ID) underneath the display using a lens hole.
All iPhone 15 models may finally get a USB-C port, replacing the Lightning port. In the EU, all gadgets with a wired charging platform must include a USB-C connector by fall 2024.
Recent iPhone screens haven’t changed. A larger-screened iPhone 15 Ultra might compete with the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus. Apple should examine this. Even if Samsung used Ultra first on the Galaxy S line, Apple won’t object when it calculates iPhone 15 Ultra sales.
