Phenomenal Wonder List from Apple’s Event 2023
For months, the iPhone 15 rumors have been circulating online, seemingly endless. Instead of incremental upgrades year after year, some suggest a radical shift towards a new, bigger Pro model named the iPhone 15 Ultra. As expectations rise, here’s everything you can expect from Apple’s event today.
The invitation to the event is rather cryptic. They have used smaller particles to make up the Apple logo. The logo looks similar to furrows, just like the patterns that are created on the sand due to the wind.
Like everyone else, we’re trying to read between the lines in the invitation and pondering what Apple’s upcoming announcements might entail. Can the logo’s trench-like cutouts hint at a new boxy iPhone design? Could the reference to particles mean a better camera? Or might they relate to colors – blue, pink, and even gold shades for the new iPhones or Apple Watches?
Or is all this just Apple’s way of embracing a sense of mystery for a brief period? But I hope the iPhone 15 Pro is the headline act. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, a reliable source for Apple leaks, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will essentially be an iPhone 14 Pro repackaged without the telephoto camera or stainless-steel body.
The new phones will inherit a 48-megapixel main camera and the A16 chip from the iPhone 14 Pro. Externally, both phones will trade in their notched displays for Dynamic iLand cutouts, which was introduced on the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
Despite the addition of Dynamic Island, don’t expect any other changes to the screen. Display analyst Ross Young, in a September 2022 post, when he was still known as Twitter’s Ice Universe, stated that he wasn’t expecting the iPhone 15 models to achieve the high refresh rates of Apple’s Pro iPhones.
So, there you have it, everything we can expect from Apple’s event today. The anticipation is high, and the possibilities are wide open.
According to a May report from Charger Lab, a website known for reliable tracking of rumors, all four iPhone 15 models will support 15-watt wireless charging using the Qi2 open standard at the beginning of this year. If this is true then, iPhone 15 will ultimately allow us to use Apple-licensed accessories such as, wireless charging device.
But the most significant change expected for all four iPhones could be the departure from the Lightning connector. Potentially influenced by pressure from the European Union, which passed a law enforcing USB-C as a universal charging standard, the iPhone 15 series might feature a USB-C port instead of the traditional Lightning port. Apple hasn’t given the iPhone’s power port a makeover like this in a long time. The most recent memory of such a transition date back to 2012 when they introduced the Lightning port on the iPhone 5. This change marked the farewell to the old and bulky 30-pin iPod connector.
Among all of Apple’s announced changes, the biggest ones for the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. According to Bloomberg’s Gurman, stainless steel is out, and these Pro models will be made from titanium frames. This material change could potentially help reduce the overall weight of each phone, even without a case, as titanium is lighter than steel.
The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max could possibly receive a new chip, the A17, which houses a 3nm processor, a first-of-its-kind for Apple. On the front, both phones are expected to have potentially slimmer display bezels, offering a more modern look.
The Pro models’ most significant change could be the USB-C port, which can support faster data transfer speeds for things like files and ProRes video files compared to the regular 15 and 15 Plus models.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max might even feature a new 6x optical telephoto camera. Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that the Pro Max could feature a periscope lens and camera unit installed horizontally inside the phone’s body, similar to what’s seen in the Pixel 7 Pro, Galaxy S23 Ultra, and Sony Xperia phones. This could allow for better detail, resolution, and zoom in capturing images compared to the current iPhone 14 Pro’s 6x digital zoom.
The report that was provided by him. Indicated that that unlike the standard 15 and 15 Plus models, the 15 Pro model will contain a solid-state volume and power buttons. These buttons won’t be mechanical and could function like “home buttons” thanks to haptic feedback, much like what we saw in the HTC U12 in 2018, where solid-state buttons replaced mechanical ones. However, the user experience was not great back then.
Some rumors are circulating that are somewhat speculative. One suggests that the iPhone 15 Pro Max could be rebranded as the iPhone 15 Ultra.
Another fresher rumor comes through MacRumors, which found code in the iOS 17 beta version that suggests the Apple Watch Ultra might have a dedicated action button. This would be a hardware addition, and Apple’s first foray into an action button for the iPhone, possibly used for phone-based actions like shortcuts or camera shutter functions. To get the definite answer, we’ll need to hang on until the 12th of this month rolls around.
