What are we going to say, Apple hasn’t really pulled off much with this year’s 14 iPhones in terms of pure novelty. At least not with the base iPhone 14 and the Plus variant. The Pro and Pro Max models have already gotten a few extra tweaks, but it’s still more of a cautious overkill. Or is it more of a safe bet?
Apple leaves no stone unturned
But let’s stay with the current generation for a moment. As you know, Apple has ditched the compact Mini. It’s been replaced by the larger Plus model, and surprisingly, it’s not selling particularly well.
This raises the question of whether the apple marketers have (again) misjudged the situation or whether the original three-leaf clover is simply what customers really want. Either way, this year – it seems – things might be a little different.
iPhone 15 Pro on sale
Yes, we will see at least four models again. The basic iPhone 15 will be complemented by the iPhone 15 Plus, 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max or 15 Ultra, but that’s where the parallel with last year supposedly ends. There are rumours that Cupertino will be unexpectedly “generous”.
For example, the MacRumors server currently quotes popular analyst Jeff Pu, who points out that the equipment side of the iPhone 15 Pro awaits us an increase in memory to 8 GB of RAM or a solid titanium jacket. The expert also confirms previous speculations and announces that these changes are indeed on the agenda.
The deployment of Apple’s latest ultra-powerful A17 Bionic processor built on 3nm lithography will only fall on the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Ultra. The cheaper iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will run on last year’s A16 Bionic chipset. All four phones will have a USB-C charging connector and a Qualcomm Snapdragon X70 5G modem.
And Pu is also clear about the main camera. Even in the affordable models, he expects the presence of a 48MP sensor, which was first seen in the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
