Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max is only a few months old, and we are noticing rumors about the next iPhone 15 Pro Max. Apple has a history of keeping secrets, and they don’t want to leak any information regarding its upcoming projects. Still, people share much intelligence to make new headlines about secret Apple designs. We can expect further design improvements in iPhone 15, and we may see the iPhone we have wanted for many years.
We have so far heard about the new type c port and solid-state volume buttons in the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Insiders and analysts have also predicted that Apple will bring the dynamic island to all iPhone 15 models.
Solid Volume & Power Buttons
To make iPhone further resistant to water, Apple can ditch the physical buttons in favor of solid-state switches. That will help to improve water resistance on the iPhone. The haptic feedback in Apple devices is already good with this new system, and we can also expect improvements in the haptic engine.
The iPhone 7 home button had a good adoption rate, and people slowly got used to that. Now Apple’s iPhone SE is using the same tech, and the feel of pressing that button is good. You can not get that kind of experience with any other smartphone.
USB C in iPhone 15 Pro Max
Everyone will love the USB C port in the iPhone. Every Apple product has switched to USB type C. The recently launched iPad 10th generation has also removed the lighting port in favor of a type c port.
Apple isn’t happy with the removal of its decade-old lightning port, it’s due to the enforcement by European Union. USB C is the future of connectivity, and we are ready to welcome it.
USB C offers fast charging and data transfer speeds than the lightning connector. It means improved fast charging for all iPhones. Currently, the peak charging power for Apple smartphones is 20W. It is slower compared to most Android counterparts.
Dynamic Island for All iPhone 15 Models
iPhone 14 Pro Max is the top model in the 14 series. It’s expensive due to Dynamic Island, which isn’t available in the low-end iPhone 14 & 14 plus. In the 15 series, all models all expected to get this feature.
It is the classic Apple way to reserve new features for the expensive models only for a certain period. iPhone 15 Pro Max is launching a year after the 14 pro max, so we can expect all the models to get Dynamic Island.
3nm Fabricated A17 Chip inside iPhone 15 Pro Max
It is the obvious thing that Apple’s next flagship will be shipped with an A17 chip. TSMC is the official supplier of iPhone processors to Apple. 3nm fabrication process will embed more transistors in the chip and we can expect a 10 to 20 percent increase in the performance of this chip.
Performance aside, the new chip will consume less energy which will help in battery life improvements. The battery life in the iPhone 14 pro max is already very good. iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to take it to a next level.
More RAM in next Apple Flagship
Apple has kept RAM in its smartphones & tablets a mystery for a long time. However, people used several benchmark apps to figure out the exact amount of RAM inside Apple mobile phones. In the past few keynotes, apple disclosed its smartphone memory specifications.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to have a memory boost with more RAM than any other iPhone. It will make the smartphone future-proof and reduce slowness in the long run. Apple products age well, but this step will further improve them.
10x Zoom with Periscope Camera Lens in iPhone 15 Pro Max
Apple is reportedly working on a periscope lens for the past few years, and 2023 might be the year to launch it. If that happens, iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the best candidate for that equipment. Periscope technology will make iPhone capable of macro shots.
Some android smartphones are already using this tech in their cameras. iPhone cameras are good, and the periscope lens will make them even more powerful. iPhone 15 series can offer 5x or 10x zoom with this lens.
Changes in the Name & Size
Apple follows the convention in naming all its products. From the past, we know that Apple loves roman symbols. There are rumors that the latest iPhone can be iPhone XV Ultra. We can expect that after Apple introduces the Apple Watch Ultra.
iPhone 13 Mini dropped from the lineup after two generations. Apple refined the sizes this year, so the next year will likely remain the same. The four models of the iPhone 15 series will be similar to the iPhone 14 series.
There are high hopes that Apple will move to the USB-C with the iPhone 15 Pro Max. After the European Union mandated, Apple confirmed the type c iPhone.
Apple discontinued the mini iPhone this year. So, we cannot expect any iPhone 15 mini.
The price of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to be the same as the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It can cost around 1099$ for the 128GB variant.
