Dynamic island Coming To iPhone 15 And 15 Plus
In iPhone 14 Pro, we saw that the notch, which has all the Face ID sensors as well as the camera, shrunk into a smaller punch hole in the screen. Apple made an innovative solution for the punch hole with notifications. The hole transformed into an interactive dynamic island.
The dynamic island feature was exclusive to the pro iPhones only in the iPhone 14 series. For the iPhone 15 series, Apple is bringing the dynamic island to all the iPhone 15 models.
USB C for charging
Since Europe is trying to make the USB-C charging standard for all wired charging devices, it is a high probability that the iPhone 15 will come with USB-C charging and data transfer.
However, iPhone 15 will still use an MFI (Made for iPhone) certified USB C charging cable. Apple is going to insert a chip in both cable and phone so that it can be identified.
This is still a good thing because now you get to have a single MFI-certified cable to charge all your devices. You can still use the MFI-certified USB C cable to charge any of your devices, even outside the Apple ecosystem.
iPhone 15 Camera
The iPhone 15 camera system will come with 2 cameras. The main camera is the wide camera, and the other camera is the ultra-wide camera.
Rumours are that these cameras will be custom-made by sony for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 pro series. The pro series also get a huge camera upgrade. This year’s iPhone 15 pro series will get a third camera with a periscopic zoom lens.
Titanium frame for the pro series
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max came with stainless steel frame. Apple is taking the iPhone 15 to the next level. The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will come with a Titanium body which we have seen in some of the Apple watches. This will provide the iPhone 15 Pros with better durability and better build quality.
Newer Colour Options For The iPhone 15 Pro And Pro Max
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro max are rumoured to have two colour options. The colours will either be Purple or Dark Maroon.
All about the new A17 Bionic processor
The iPhone 15 series will come with the A16 Bionic processor, which was available in iPhone 14 Pros last year.
However, The pro and ultra series will get a massive upgrade in terms of the processor. The iPhone 15 Pro, Pro Max, and Ultra series will come with the A17 Bionic processor.
This will be the first ever processor by Apple that will be of 3nm. This will be the smallest chip made by Apple. This processor will be over 30% more efficient than last year’s A16 Bionic.
The iPhone 15 series will not have any physical buttons. Don’t worry, there will still be volume rockers and a silent switch on the iPhone 15.
No Physical Buttons On The New iPhones
Apple will add solid-state buttons on the iPhone 15. These buttons will be similar to the home buttons we saw on iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 home button did not physically move. It still felt like it was moving because of the 3D sensors. Similarly, there will be no physical moving buttons in iPhone 15 series. They will have sensors that make you feel that you have pressed the button.
For the silent mode switch, all the previous iPhones had a switch that moves upwards for the ringer and downwards for the silent. Rumour is that it will change for iPhone 15 series. The iPhone 15 Series will have a solid-state button instead of a moving switch.
Other Feature Of iPhone 15
With the ProMotion technology in iPhones, the screens of iPhones already feel super fast. Since the iPhone 13 Pro, the Pro iPhones operate at 120 frames per second which makes it very smooth. The iPhone 15 Ultra will be equipped with an even better 2K+ OLED Super Retina XDR display with a 120hz refresh rate which reaches the brightness of 2000+ nits.
Storage and Memory
This year’s iPhone lineups are equipped with up to 1TB NVMe storage system with 6GB of RAM. The next generation of Apple’s iPhones could be equipped with up to 1TB UFS 3.1 storage system with up to 8GB of RAM.
The iPhone 14 series came with iOS 16 out of the box. The iPhone 15 series could come with a newer operating system from Apple for iPhones with iOS 17 out of the box. Apple usually has a public beta testing program for their operating system so that you can get your hands on iOS 17 even a few months before the launch of the iPhone 15.
The current generation of iPhones has up to 29 hours of battery life on a single charge, even with the new always-on display. The next generation of iPhones, especially the iPhone 15 Ultra, takes it to a whole new level giving up to 48 hours of battery life. The iPhone 15 Ultra could be equipped with a massive 5000mAh battery.
This year Apple could be aiming for even better IP ratings for their iPhone lineups. At the launch of the iPhone 7, it was no secret that if there were fewer moving parts in the phone, the phone would become more water resistant. Hence, Apple removed the travelling home button from the iPhone 7 and added the haptic feedback instead of the home button actually moving. The 15 Ultra will be equipped with similar technology for the volume and power buttons, thus, giving it an even better IP rating. The phone can survive even longer at even deeper submerge.
Cellular and Data
The iPhone 15 Ultra will come with eSIM only for the USA. It could have an eSIM as well as a physical SIM tray. It also comes with wifi calling and VoLTE as well as 6Ghz 5G. Here is the interesting part, The iPhone 15 Ultra will be equipped with WiFi 6E, which can take advantage of an even better frequency band of 6Ghz therefore, delivering internet speeds of up to 5.5GBPS over wifi. This is over twice as fast as the previous generation of iPhones.
Now you know all about the new iPhone 15 series. I can’t wait to see what Apple does with the new iPhone 15 finally. To sum up, All iPhone 15 models are expected to come with a dynamic island. They will charge through an MFI-certified USB-C charger.
Custom new sensors by Sony will be added for the camera on the iPhone 15 series. The iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra series will come with a new periscopic zoom lens. Titanium frame with new Purple or Dark Maroon color options for the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra series. 30% More efficient processors for the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra series.
The iPhone 15 Ultra will launch in the fourth quarter (q4) of 2024. It’s highly likely that iPhone to launch in the 2nd week of September 2024.
The iPhone 15 Ultra could start at $1199 for 128GB of storage.
The 4 main changes from iPhone 14 to iPhone 15 will be a dynamic island, solid state buttons, A16 bionic processor, and USB C for charging. If you want some of these features, it’s worth waiting for.
The normal non-pro iPhone 15 will come in the same colours as iPhone 14 non-pros. The Pros and Ultra are rumoured to come in purple or dark maroon.
