A recent report revealed that the iPhone 15 phones, which are expected to arrive this year, will undergo some major camera upgrades, and the two high-end iPhone models could get the large camera upgrade seen on the iPhone 14 Pro models.
According to a research note seen by 9to5Mac, the vanilla iPhone 15 models may get a 48-megapixel camera, and an Apple analyst believes that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will adopt a triple-stacked sensor architecture for the main camera with a 48-megapixel wide lens, which until now is exclusive to iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
However, the telephoto and LiDAR sensors will remain exclusive to the Pro models. Furthermore, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will also forgo the lightning port for a USB C port, similar to what is expected for the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Vanilla iPhone 15 models could also get a chip upgrade with the A16 Bionic, which powers the latest iPhone 14 Pro models. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are reported to have a much newer A17 Bionic, which is rumored to be a 3nn chipset.
And previous reports indicated that the iPhone 15 Pro models are also subject to some upgrades, including the default power and home buttons, and Pu repeats the same. Moreover, the iPhone 15 Pro models will come with a titanium frame, and it is said that the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which may Launched as iPhone 15 Urtla, it offers a 6x periscope camera along with a 3x telephoto lens.
Jeff Pu says that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models will come in two screen sizes – 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches – like the iPhone 14 series, and the analyst claims that the new iPhone 15 series will hit stores on September 23.
