Tuesday evening is the day: Apple unveils the iPhone 15 line. At the last minute, some new details about the new iPhones were leaked.
In general, new iPhones have been leaking in recent weeks. We are already looking forward to the iPhone 15 video And in our podcast. But now, at the last minute, some details have emerged about the iPhone 15, which we don’t want to keep from you.
More camera details
There have been rumors for months about the arrival of a periscope camera in the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Reports say the camera island will then contain three lenses, but they will be somewhat larger on the Max AppleInsider. But the site has more information about the 15-line cameras. What’s new is that all models have a 48-megapixel main camera. This was introduced last year with the iPhone 14 Pro models. Users can take photos at the full higher resolution, but by default, iPhones still take 12-megapixel photos, but with more detail.
Furthermore, the 48MP sensor adds a 2x zoom option, which essentially cuts out the center of the image at a higher resolution. Additionally, the new Pro models will get a slightly larger 13.4MP wide-angle camera, and the 15 Pro’s telephoto camera sensor grows to 12.7MP. The ultra-wide-angle lens of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus reportedly remains unchanged.
Pros 10 percent lighter
The new iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will have a titanium case instead of stainless steel. This makes the devices approximately 10 percent lighter Bloomberg Let’s say now. The current 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models weigh 206 and 240 grams respectively, so they will be 20.6 and 24 grams lighter.
Bloomberg points out that despite the reduced weight, iPhones still have longer battery life, due to the more economical A17 chip. Previously, there were also rumors about all new iPhones having a larger battery, which could make them a bit heavier.
What’s more, the new iPhones will feature a new super-fast chip, the U2. This chip controls, among other things, the search for AirTags and other Apple devices. The U2 chip should make this research more accurate and reliable.
Wireless charging on new iPhones is said to be faster than before. It was already known that wired charging will most likely be faster: due to the switch to USB-C, the maximum speed will increase from 20W to 30W. The leap in wireless charging is unknown, with iPhones currently charging at a maximum of 15W using MagSafe chargers and 5 to 7.5W via Qi.
New iPhones likely to support Qi2: The new version of the open standard is based on MagSafe.
15 Pro is not more expensive than 14 Pro?
According to previous rumours, the 15 Pro models will be available for the first time with at least 256GB of storage. This will be welcome, because anyone who takes large photos and videos will quickly run out of storage space. New information It refers to the entry-level Pro model with 128GB.
The good news is that the entry-level iPhone 15 Pro model won’t get any more expensive than its predecessor, at least in the US the price will remain at $999. Here the price of the 14 Pro starts at €1,326, partly because VAT is already included and because of currency differences. The 15 Pro Max will be more expensive than the current model, due to the addition of a periscope camera. The Max will be $100 more expensive and is expected to cost around €1,579 in the Netherlands.
analyst trendforce iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to be the most popular model this year, accounting for 40 percent of all iPhone 15 models shipped. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently made a similar prediction about the success of the largest and most expensive iPhone.
More storage space or not?
TrendForce denies rumors that there will be a 2TB option for the Pro models for the first time. Pro versions are now available with up to 1TB of storage, and earlier rumors were of doubling the space – but then along with the disappearance of the 128GB option. Apple has offered these storage options for the regular iPhone and four options for the Pro line for years.
