iPhone 15 models are expected to launch between September 12 and 13 The preorders and sales beginning the next date, which is Friday (September 22,). This is an usual timeline for the launch of an iPhone by Apple.
Leaked CAD files suggest that the Pro models will drop the Lightning connector to make way for USB-C. This would be compatible with the latest European regulations. This will allow for faster charging speeds.
There’s been much discussion about the various upgrades Apple is rumored to be making for its iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (or, according to who you trust the new iPhone Ultra). One particular feature has stood out as a titanium. According to some sources, Apple may shift from stainless steel to titanium in its Pro models. This would reduce the weight of phones and make them more durable.
It will permit Apple to move away from its current flat-sided design in favor of something closer to the curly edges present on the most recent MacBook Pros. Curved edges will give elegance to phones and still allow them to support MagSafe and wireless charging.
Titanium is an interesting option as it’s extremely light and durable, but it’s cheaper to produce in comparison to stainless steel. That means that it can give a greater price-to-weight ratio than stainless steel and could be more affordable than aluminum. It’s used already in both the Apple Watch Ultra and physical Apple Card, so a shift to titanium on the iPhones will be a huge decision for the company. The change may not result in that there will be a significant price hike for customers, dependent on the amount that the business wants to spend.
The upcoming iPhone 15 series has been at the center of numerous of leaks, ranging from CAD renders to rumors about the design of its camera. However, one of the most intriguing speculations concerns wireless charging features. According to a report from ChargerLab that the standard iPhone 15 will support fast wireless charging at up to 15W. This is an increase over the current speed of 7.5W and is only accessible using MagSafe chargers.
It is possible to be part of the new Qi2 open standard. This is an updated version of the current MagSafe technology. It’s said to be more efficient and allows for better power transfer between the phone and charger. The company also claims to be more stable as compared to MagSafe, which can become unstable or lose its grip over time.
This latest innovation could mark an end to Apple’s walled garden policy, which had previously restricted the usage of other chargers with its smartphones. If Apple can eliminate its requirement for MagSafe chargers to enable wireless charging with high speed, it could open the door to other devices like laptops and tablets equipped with a USB-C port. This could be a perfect solution to be in compliance with EU rules that demand ports for charging and transfers of data.
The latest iPhone series is expected to see a significant upgrade in its charging capabilities. While the company hasn’t explicitly disclosed the changes but industry sources claim that the new iPhones will have faster charging speeds that their predecessors.
Although, the faster charging capabilities will likely only be available on the Pro models. The base version will support only USB 2.0 technology, which won’t bring much benefit over Lightning. The Pro model On the other hand, could be equipped with Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.2, iphone 15 plus 256gb which will offer blazingly rapid file transfers.
In addition to faster charging, the upcoming iPhone 15 is also believed to feature a better camera. There are rumors that suggest the ‘Pro’ and ‘Pro Max’ variants will have the periscopic lens, which can offer the possibility of six times optical zoom. The Pro models could also keep their 120-Hz refresh rate.
As for the battery of the iPhone 15, rumors are predicting that it’ll come with an increase of between 11 and 18 percent in capacity than its predecessor. This increase will allow the device to run for more than the usual. This phone will have a 2TB option for storage. That’s double what was available in the previous iPhone.
