Supposedly iPhone 15 Ultra: 8K video, longer battery life, bigger screen, higher price

Confession time. When Apple announced that its new rugged and expensive smartwatch was named Apple Watch Ultra and not Apple Watch Pro, this writer wondered if Apple was suggesting a change it plans to make to the Apple iPhone lineup. In my head, I thought maybe next year Apple would release an even more expensive iPhone 15 Ultra that would have specs better than the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Apple could replace iPhone 15 Pro Max with iPhone 15 Ultra

But before I started writing, it occurred to me that it would require Apple to use the name Ultra for the iPhone, a name already used by its top rival Samsung. Apple won’t do what I thought; so yeah, your really 86 idea and moved on.

As it is a competitive business, I was surprised, amused and even angry with myself after reading the tweet from the tipster’s Twitter Leaks ApplePro who wrote about the new iPhone 2023 model naming scheme that he probably heard from the source (unlike me, as my prediction was based on a gut feeling and many years of writing experience about the mobile market).
Typer says next year Apple will introduce the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra. Not only does he expect it to be more diverse than the Pro Max models, but he expects it to be priced from $ 1,199. That would be $ 100 more than the asking price of $ 1099 for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It claims Apple is working on 8K video recording, although it’s unclear whether this will be for the two Pro models (iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra) or for the Ultra model itself.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a reliable TF International analyst and a man who knows what Tim Cook will wear next Thursday in October, suggests that only the Ultra model will be equipped with a periscope lens with a 5x to 6x zoom. The Ultra is said to have three to four hours of extra battery life. Have I just seen your ears go up?

You know you want Dynamic Island! Get an iPhone 14 Pro now!

We already know, or at least there are rumors, that all four 2023 models will come with Apple’s latest amazing feature that you didn’t know you needed, Dynamic Island. Apple is expected to place this year’s 4nm A16 Bionic inside the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, while the 3nm A17 Bionic will power the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra. This would make the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra the first iPhone models to use chips made using the TSMC 3nm process node.

The Apple iPhone 15 line can replace the Lightning port with a USB-C port

The smaller the process node, the greater the number of transistors that can fit into a small, dense place like a chip. And the greater the number of transistors in a chip, the more powerful and energy-efficient this component is. Apple is also reportedly testing a way to move the True Depth camera components (used for Face ID) under the display using a lens punch.

We’d be careless if we didn’t mention that all iPhone 15 models could possibly eventually replace the Lightning port with a USB-C port. But this change could wait for the iPhone 16, as in the EU (that’s the European Union for you and me), all devices that use a wired charging platform must have a USB-C charging port by fall 2024.

We haven’t seen any noticeable change in the screen sizes of recent iPhone models. The iPhone 15 Ultra may appear to break away from the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus thanks to its larger display. It all makes too much sense for Apple to ignore it. And even if Samsung used the Ultra as the first in the Galaxy S line, we’re sure Apple won’t mind as it counts the revenue that the iPhone 15 Ultra model can generate.
