What is already known about the iPhone 15

There are interesting predictions and rumors about the upcoming iPhone 15. The Pro variants in particular can not only look different than before, but feel very different as well. But something also happens with the standard models – and all new iPhones will receive a change.
Although there are still nearly ten months until Apple presents its new iPhones, hardware development has been going on for a long time and production is being planned and prepared. That is why there are not only rumors about the next generation, but also concrete predictions.
Dynamic Island and USB-C for all iPhones
It is rumored that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will hardly look the same. There’s a good chance it’ll get one or more new colors and the A16 chip that powers existing Pro models. It wouldn’t be surprising if Apple’s Normalos also loses the old notch next year and the real depth camera surrounds “Dynamic Island” like the iPhone 14 Pro duo.
Not only because the infallible Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that almost all upcoming iPhones will not have a Lightning connector, but a USB-C jack. Marketing chief Greg Joswiak told The Wall Street Journal that EU regulation on the single shipping standard would be subject to it.
Pros with a faster USB standard
Apple might have planned the move anyway, since the connection is outdated and stopped at the USB 2.0 level, which allows data transfers up to 480 megabits per second (Mbit/s). On the USB-C sockets, on the other hand, up to 40 Gbps (Gb / s) is possible, with the fastest Thunderbolt interface even being developed by Apple.
However, the presence of a unified USB-C port does not mean that every iPhone 15 will have a Turbo Jack. Kuo expects devices to remain standard at USB 2.0 speeds. For professionals, on the other hand, at least USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3.0 (20/40 Gb/s) is expected. This means that the best Apple smartphones will differ from the usual devices more than they really are.
iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max without physical buttons
This may also be the case with design. Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the Pros will no longer have physical buttons, but will use touch surfaces to control volume and power button functions.
However, users should still feel the actual keypresses. So, according to Kuo, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will have vibration motors (taptic motors) on the left and right sides of the inside of the frame, which will work in a similar way to the Touch ID of the iPhone 7, 8, and the two latest SE devices.
from the passenger @employee There is a rumor that the Pro models could have a frame made of titanium instead of steel, which will make the devices lighter above all. In addition, the edges of the back should be rounded at the corners. The leaker has been right many times in the past, but points out that his information is very vague.
Particularly exclusive periscope telephoto
In the Android world, there have always been flagships whose telephoto cameras have a periscope telephoto lens, and that should be the case for iPhones for the first time next year. Kuo believes that this will be an exclusive feature especially for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Since a telephoto lens also requires more space, the light beam is deflected at an angle of 90 degrees with the prism or mirror, it can only be placed in large flagships. And since it is supposed to be a little more exclusive than the iPhone 5 Pro, it can no longer be called Max, but iPhone 15 Pro Ultra, Bloomberg expert Mark Gurman writes.
There’s no going back for Touch ID
According to Gurman, the return of Touch ID in the form of an under-display sensor, which has been simmering in the rumor mill for some time, won’t be on the iPhone 15 either. According to MacRumors, Apple is instead working on Face ID hidden with a camera under the screen. Samsung is developing the corresponding boards. First of all, the next generation Galaxy Z Fold will be equipped with the technology next year.
Ming-Chi Kuo also predicted the presence of Touch or Face ID under the iPhone screen for next year. in spring change However, he predicted that Apple would not use either technology in 2023 or 2024.
