1- iPhone shifts to the USB-C Port
Until now, iPhones have consistently used the Lightning charging port. With the iPhone 15 series, there seems to be a transition to the USB-C port. Experts predicted this change when Apple introduced the iPhone 14 due to an EU directive requiring all technology device manufacturers to use USB-C ports in the European Union to reduce waste.
Adopting the USB-C port is expected to provide faster charging and more versatile connection options, which are especially beneficial for those on the move or heavy phone users.
2- Design synchronization on all iPhone 15 models
According to Tomsguide, Apple may equip Dynamic Island on all versions of the iPhone 15, not just the Pro version like the previous generation.
However, the iPhone 15 dummy leaked recently shows that the screen of the upcoming generation remains the same as the old series, and Dynamic Island will appear only on Pro models. Although this information has not been confirmed, this rumor surprises many iFans, as this could make the iPhone 14 a poor-selling version.
3- Upgrading to A16 Bionic and A17 Bionic chips
According to the news updated on Tomsguide, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be upgraded to the A16 Bionic chip, like iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The A16 Bionic chip with a 4nm manufacturing process combined with 6GB LPDDR5 RAM will deliver superior performance for the device.
For the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, the Macrumors technology site also analyzes the A17 Bionic chip that will appear in these two versions. A17 Bionic is the most advanced chip currently available with a 3nm manufacturing process. A17 Bionic chip has a 6-core CPU and a 6-core GPU, which will help Pro models achieve the best performance.
4- Expected price increase
According to Macrumors, Apple will sell the iPhone 15 series at a higher price than its predecessor. If the iPhone 14 series launched last year and the starting price did not increase compared to the iPhone 13, then with the iPhone 15, Apple is likely to increase from 100 to 200 USD for each version.
Specifically, the selling prices of the 4 versions of the iPhone 15 are predicted as follows:
- iPhone 15: From 799 USD
- iPhone 15 Plus: From 899 USD
- iPhone 15 Pro: From 1099 USD
- iPhone 15 Pro Max: From 1299 USD
However, when arriving in Vietnam, the selling price may increase much higher due to tax policies from the state. Therefore, to buy the iPhone 15 series at the best price, you can refer to the iPhone 15 installment purchase policies at reputable sellers to learn in advance about the installment regulations and prepare appropriate finances.
5- Keeping the name “Pro Max”
A special point in this new generation of Apple phones is the change of name in the Pro Max line. Tomsguide reported that Apple may use the name iPhone 15 Ultra instead of iPhone 15 Pro Max as in the previous versions.
iPhone 15 Ultra is the same as a line of products from the strongest rival of Apple – Samsung. However, according to the latest source from 9to5mac, Apple will keep the name iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Above are the latest 5 information about the changes to the iPhone 15. However, these rumors have not been confirmed and many details may still change. Therefore, users should look forward to the iPhone 15 series date launch in the near future to verify this most accurately.
