iPhone 15 may come with more changes besides just a USB Type-C port
Apple wrapped up its Far Out event last month and presented the iPhone 14 series. Four models are available in the recently released lineup, including two Pro and two non-Pro versions. It appears that the rumour mill is now focused on the iPhone 15 series.
Apple will continue to offer four new models annually, each with two CPUs, to better distinguish between regular and high-end devices, according to a recent TrendForce analysis.
Thus, the two Pro versions from the iPhone 14 series, which are expected to be powered by the A17 Bionic chipset while the non-Pro models are said to use the A16 Bionic, may still be included in the forthcoming range.
The report also confirmed earlier rumours from Apple analysts Mark Gurman and Ming Chi-Kuo that the iPhone 15 series would have a USB-C port. This would be in line with Apple’s strategy to comply with the EU’s recently passed regulation mandating that all smartphones introduced after 2024 have a USB-C charging port. Also mentioned in the report is the possibility of 8GB RAM for the Pro models.
The iPhone 15 will be able to zoom in more than the iPhone 14 Pro Max because of other rumoured specs including an eight-part lens and a periscope camera. Additionally, Apple may decide to continue working with Qualcomm to supply the 5G modems for the next phones.
