It’s still about seven months away from the iPhone 15 launch, and if rumors are to be believed, everyone will be talking about one thing: the iPhone 15 Ultra.
The iPhone 15 Ultra, like the Apple Watch Ultra, is rumored to be the best that Apple has to offer in an iPhone. As Apple’s largest iPhone, it will be similar to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but everything will be updated inside and out. Among the credible rumors we’ve heard about the iPhone 15 Ultra are:
Big Screen: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests that the iPhone 15 Ultra could be “an even higher-end iPhone than both Pro models” rather than a replacement for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This means it could have an even bigger display, which means it will compete with or even outperform the 6.8-inch S23 Ultra.
Titanium case: Rumors have been circulating for years that Apple is working on an iPhone that uses a material other than stainless steel or aluminum, and after the Apple Watch Ultra, it makes sense for Apple to move to lightweight titanium, which is finally here. It’s entirely possible that Apple only offers it in one color, like the Apple Watch, to highlight the difference.
Solid state power volume buttons: Apple will reportedly use solid-state buttons with special tactile mechanisms on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra, excluding the last moving parts.
Periscope magnification: Another feature that has been rumored for a long time. The iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to get a new periscope zoom lens that will reportedly boost optical zoom to 6x or 10x, while digital zoom will likely reach 30x or 50x with incredible clarity.
A17 Bionic: After Apple spun off last year’s A16-powered Pro models, it will reportedly do the same in 2023 when the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Ultra get the new 3nm A17 processor, which is expected to deliver a significant speed boost. and efficiency.
WiFi 6E: After Wi-Fi 6E was introduced to the iPad Pro and later to the Mac mini and MacBook Pro, Wi-Fi 6E, which is faster and offers more bandwidth than Wi-Fi 6, will almost certainly make its way to the iPhone 15. Latest rumors say only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra will have it.
Lightning strike: The iPhone will almost certainly move to USB-C this year, but while the non-Pro models will still have Lightning speed, the Pro and Ultra models will reportedly have data transfer speeds as fast as the iPad Pro thanks to support. Thunderbolt.
More storage space: When Samsung launched its Galaxy S23 Ultra in February, it delivered a pleasant surprise: an increase in base storage to 256GB. Apple was rumored last year to increase storage to 256GB at the bottom for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, so we hope buyers get double the storage this year.
This is a long list of features that will make the iPhone 15 Ultra the most desirable phone of all time. And there may be more to come: Unknown21 on Twitterwho leaked schematics showing Wi-Fi 6E and solid-state buttons, says he “found an obvious new feature/change” in the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra and will talk about it “when he sees fit.”
So start saving now, because the iPhone 15 Ultra has one more feature: it will probably be the most expensive iPhone of all time. Gurman reports that the iPhone 15 Ultra could be even more expensive than the iPhone 14 Pro Max, possibly starting at $1,299.
