Apple hasn’t released the iPhone 14 models yet, but it looks like these devices will be getting a more subdued update than what we’ve seen recently. For this reason, rumors about the iPhone 15 have already been heard, especially about the design and some features.
Find out today all the rumors of the iPhone 15, which will be released in 2023.
It should be noted that the iPhone 15 is still early in the development cycle and a lot is included in Apple's plans. Can change.
iPhone 15 design
Rumors suggest that the iPhone 15 models will be similar to the iPhone 14 models, but the "pill-and-hole" (group of front cameras) will expand. This means that not all models will have a notch, instead adopting the two die-cut models as represented us rumors for iPhone 14 Pro models.
There have also been rumors suggesting that an under-display Face ID system could be introduced in 2023 on "Pro" models. However, it is unclear if this information is feasible, as other sources claim that this step won't be ready until at least 2024.
As no major design changes are planned, Apple will likely continue to offer four models: 6.1-inch iPhone 15, 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Max and the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max. "Pro" models will have more advanced features and will be more expensive.
Apple will consider swapping the Lightning port for a USB-C port on the iPhone 15, which will allow it to comply with European regulations in the process of being approved.
These regulations force the Cupertino company to produce iPhones with USB-C ports in Europe, this will require a global design change, or develop special iPhones for sale in Europe (not feasible).
Sources with some credibility in the rumors, including Mark Gurman and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, said Apple would make the switch. However, Apple's plans may change.
A-Series chips without iPhone 15
iPhone 15 models could be the first to feature an A-series chip 3 nanometers. 3nm chip technology is expected to increase processing performance by 10-15%, also reducing energy consumption up to 30%.
TSMC is expected to begin production of the 3nm chip later this year, meaning it will be ready for launch as early as 2023.
Periscope lens technology
There have been many rumors about Apple's work on periscopic lens technology, and this type of lens could be introduced in 2023 iPhones, likely the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.
Periscopic lens technology provides optical zoom capabilities that exceed those possible with an ordinary lens, allowing 5x or even 10x optical zoom. With a periscope lens, the iPhone's zoom capabilities would be vastly improved, like the current "Pro" models. are limited to 3x zoom.
Modem chips developed by Apple
For the past few years, Apple has been working on the development of modem chips, and 2023 could be its debut. Currently, Apple uses modem chips from Qualcommbut after a dispute in 2019, Apple is eager to stop buying chips from the company.
In November 2021, Qualcomm's chief financial officer said that his company plans to only supply 20% of its modem chips by 2023, and since Apple has no other supplier of these chips, this suggests that the company's own technology modem from Apple is in danger. to be freed.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said its chips could debut in iPhone models coming out in 2023. Little is known about Apple's modem chips at this point, but presumably the technology will be on par or better than 5G chips produced by Qualcomm.
iPhone 15 release date
The models of this new iPhone will probably be released in September 2023if Apple follows its traditional release schedule.
