Rumors about the upcoming iPhone 15 series
We received rumors about the forthcoming iPhone 15 series over the past few months. The periscope camera, titanium frame, solid-state buttons, action button, and A17 Bionic SoC are just a few of the alleged new features that reports claim Apple’s upcoming iPhones will include. These features will likely serve to improve the iPhone experience. The standard iPhone 15 variants will receive a similar treatment to the Pro models.
There is still potential for the “Ultra” moniker
Initial rumors suggested that Apple would give its top-tier iPhone 15 model, unveiled at an event in September, the “Ultra” moniker, but these claims seemed quickly refuted. However, a recent leak suggests that there is still potential for the same.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports
Apple may change its naming scheme for the following year’s iPhones and borrow the “Ultra” designation from the Apple Watch Ultra, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who made the claim shortly after the conclusion of Apple’s Far Out event last year.
iPhone 15 Ultra
These reports seemed later refuted, revealing Apple’s intention to save it for the iPhone 16 series in its place. However, as of August 19, Apple Insider’s Andrew O’Hara suggested that the top-tier iPhone may be known as the “iPhone 15 Ultra.”
Andrew O’Hara’s tweet on X
O’Hara posted on X, “Here’s an unexpected Friday tidbit that I discovered for #iPhone15. According to numerous sources, Apple will call the plus-sized professional phone the “iPhone 15 Ultra.” It was an initial rumor that got later denied. Since then, the majority now call it the iPhone 15 Pro Max.”
Comparable to the Galaxy S23 Ultra
O’Hara says the iPhone 15 Ultra might receive one of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra’s most desired features. Previous rumors claim that the iPhone 15 Ultra (or iPhone 15 Pro Max) would have a new periscope telephoto lens that could provide 5X–6X zoom. However, according to O’Hara, it will appear to have up to 10X zooming abilities, making it comparable to the S23 Ultra.
According to the alleged information from O’Hara, the iPhone 15 Pro models will have a titanium frame and an action button in place of the recognizable mute switch. The new A17 Bionic SoC will likely run the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra.
