Indeed, with the iPhone 14 Pro delayed and speculations of some extremely appealing improvements for the high-end iPhone 15 models, you might want to wait until September 2023 to update. We’ve described some of the things you may expect, which may just be fresh additions worth waiting for.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are backordered and out of stock at all stores due to production problems at Apple supplier plants in China. If you were hoping to give or receive an iPhone 14 Pro model for the holidays and haven’t already done so, you’re out of luck since they’re completely sold out until late December.

iPhone 15 Pro Ultra and iPhone 15

Part of the reason the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are so popular this year is that Apple crammed them with capabilities that the basic iPhone 14 models lacked. Faster CPUs, improved cameras, and the Dynamic Island make the iPhone 14 Pro significantly more desirable than the iPhone 13-like iPhone 14 models, and the same trend is expected to continue with the iPhone 15 Pro.

In fact, Apple may go even farther by equipping the iPhone 15 Pro Max with more features than the iPhone 15 Pro, and reports claim that it may even get a new moniker to reflect the shift – iPhone 15 Ultra. If you enjoy the latest and finest, it may be worth the wait.

A17 Processor is faster

The A16 was only available in iPhone 14 Pro models, while the A17 is believed to be confined to iPhone 15 Pro devices. The A17 might be the first chip made on TSMC’s next-generation 3-nanometer node, allowing for better performance while consuming less power.

Camera Periscope Lens

Apple is developing enhanced optical zoom capabilities provided by periscope lens technology, which may be limited to the iPhone 15 Ultra. Because periscope lenses are pricey and take up space, Apple may use them as a motivator to entice customers to buy the most expensive iPhone.

Apple might provide up to 10x optical zoom using periscope lens technology, up from 3x in the existing iPhone 14 Pro versions. Other manufacturers, including as Samsung, have used these longer-range telephoto lenses in conjunction with digital zoom to achieve astonishing 100x zoom capabilities.

USB-C

The whole iPhone 15 series is slated to switch to USB-C rather than Lightning in 2023, so if you like utilising a single charger for your Mac, iPhone, and iPad, the iPhone 15 models will appeal.

Apple is making this shift to comply with a European legislation that requires cellphones and devices to use the same charger, but it wouldn’t make sense for the business to manufacture a USB-C iPhone only for one country, so customers throughout the world will benefit.

All iPhone 15 models will include USB-C, although speculations say that the iPhone 15 Pro variants will have faster data transfers. Transfer speeds might reach 40Gb/s if Apple, for example, incorporates Thunderbolt 3 capability into the iPhone 15 Pro models. With

Buttons Made of Solid State

Additional Taptic Engines might be added to the iPhone 15 Pro versions, allowing for solid-state volume and power buttons that feel like buttons but aren’t. This is the technology used by Apple for the touchpad on the MacBook Pro, so it seems like you’re hitting a button yet there’s no real button press mechanism.

This is a reported feature for the iPhone 15 Pro models, and it might allow for additional functionality when pressing specific keys, as well as better water resistance, however how the solid-state buttons will be used remains to be seen.

Additional Rumors

Other speculations concerning the iPhone 15 Pro versions exist, some more trustworthy than others. Here’s what we’ve heard thus far:

• A stronger titanium chassis.

• Curved rear edges replace the previous squared off appearance.

• Qualcomm 5G modem processor.

• There is no Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and there is no under-display Face ID.
