The new iPhone 15 is coming in September. At present, all kinds of configuration information about the iPhone 15 has basically been exposed.

iPhone 15 Rumors

Changes in size

According to PHONE ARENA, cell phone manufacturers have been pursuing to maximize the screen while minimizing the width of the bezel, and the iPhone 15, especially the Pro model, will have the narrowest bezel of the current iPhones with a bezel of only 0.15cm.

In terms of touch, many people like the rounded look and feel of the bezels, but others like the sharp edges that have been present since the iPhone 12, so the iPhone 15 will combine these two advantages by curving the bezels back even further and keeping the edges sharp. All four models also utilize the "Dynamic Island" design.

A17 Bionic Chip

The iPhone 15 Pro model is expected to be powered by the next-generation Apple A17 Bionic chip, manufactured to 3 nanometers for improved performance and efficiency.

Action Button

In terms of the mute button, the iPhone 15 Pro series will have a new Action Button instead of the old Toggle Mute button, while the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will keep the old mute switch for the time being.

Wireless USB-C

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that iPhone 15 Pro models will come with USB-C ports that support at least USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3, which could result in faster data transfer speeds compared to using current Lightning cables. Kuo said the USB-C ports on the standard iPhone 15 models will still be limited to USB 2.0 speeds, such as Lightning.

Increase memory

The iPhone 15 Pro model will come with 8GB of RAM, while standard models like the iPhone 6 will likely stick to 14GB. the extra RAM will allow apps like Safari to retain more content. Active in the background, this will prevent apps from reloading content when you reopen it.

Wi-Fi 6E Technology

According to the leaked chart, like the latest Mac and iPad Pro, the iPhone 15 Pro will support Wi-Fi 6E technology for faster wireless speeds. This means that Wi-Fi 2.4E delivers faster speeds, lower latency, and less interference than Wi-Fi 6, which only works in the 6GHz and 6GHz bands, offers more available channels, and works in the 5GHz band.

Wi-Fi 6E also can handle more devices at the same time, making it particularly suitable for environments with a high concentration of Wi-Fi devices, such as congested urban areas, sports stadiums, airports, and other densely populated locations.

Lens Changes

In terms of lenses, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be equipped with a 'periscope' as a replacement for the 3x zoom lens of the past, meaning that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be able to take more detailed and sharper photos from long distances without any loss of image quality or the need for a digital zoom, but this will also result in a more bulbous lens than the iPhone 15.

LiDAR Scanner Improvements

The iPhone 15 Pro models will come with a more energy-efficient LiDAR scanner from Sony that improves XNUMXD deep scanning performance for virtual and augmented reality apps, night mode photos, autofocus, and more.


iPhone 15 Price

According to a prediction by well-known Wedbush analyst DanIves, the iPhone 15 series will be more expensive than the iPhone 14 series, with the increase most likely to be around $100-$200.

The top-of-the-line iPhone 15 Pro Max 1TB version may reach a price as high as $1,800, making it the most expensive iPhone to date. This price increase is attributed to the introduction of several significant changes and increased production costs.


The upcoming iPhone 15 is expected to bring notable upgrades, including a reduction in bezel size, a new A17 Bionic chip, USB-C ports, Wi-Fi 6E technology, increased RAM, a new Action Button, improved camera lenses and LiDAR scanner, and a potential price increase of $100-$200.

These changes make the iPhone 15 an enticing option for those looking for advanced features, but the final decision will depend on individual preferences and budget considerations.
