About 6 months remain before the unveiling of the iPhone 15 phones, amid growing rumors about the new device from Apple, which is expected to include many features and changes, especially in the iPhone 15 Pro model, including a titanium frame.
And the “MacRumors” website published 11 features that are rumored about the “iPhone 15 Pro” models, which are not expected to be available on the standard “iPhone 15” and “iPhone 15 Plus”, according to what was seen by Al Arabiya.net.
The iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to be equipped with the next-generation A17 Bionic chip, which is manufactured on a 3nm architecture from TSMC to improve performance and efficiency. It is expected that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will contain the “A16 Bionic” chip.
Like the Apple Watch Ultra, the iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to have a titanium frame instead of stainless steel.
Ultra thin curved edges
Like recent Apple Watch models, the iPhone 15 Pro will have very thin curved edges around the screen.
USB-C is faster
The “iPhone 15 Pro” models will also feature a “USB-C” charging port with at least “USB 3.2” or “Thunderbolt 3” support, according to the famous Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, which may lead to devices enjoying significantly faster data transfer speeds. Significant compared to existing iPhones that have a Lightning port.
Kuo said the USB-C port on standard iPhone 15 models will still be limited to USB 2.0 speeds such as Lightning.
Like the latest Mac and iPad Pro devices, the iPhone 15 Pro will support Wi-Fi 6E technology for faster wireless speeds, according to a leaked chart.
iPhone 15 Pro models will be equipped with 8GB of RAM, according to Taiwanese research firm TrendForce, while the standard models will likely continue to have 6GB memory cards.
The extra RAM could allow apps like Safari to keep more content active in the background, preventing the app from reloading content when you reopen it.
Solid state buttons
The iPhone 15 Pro will feature volume down and power buttons, according to Kuo.
The analyst said that the devices will be equipped with two additional “Taptic” engines that provide tactile feedback to simulate the feeling of pressing buttons, without moving them physically, similar to the Home button on the latest “iPhone SE” phones, or the trackpad on “MacBook” devices.
The iPhone 15 Pro models are also rumored to be equipped with a mute button to turn the ringer on and off. All current iPhones have a mute switch.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a periscope telephoto lens, according to Kuo. This may lead to the device obtaining an optical zoom of at least 6 times, compared to 3x in the “iPhone 14 Pro” models.
Improved LiDAR scanner
iPhone 15 Pro models will also feature a more energy-efficient LiDAR scanner provided by Sony, which can improve 3D depth scanning performance for augmented reality apps and night mode photos.
The new dark red color option will be available for iPhone 15 Pro models, according to 9to5Mac.
