There are a few big upgrades to look forward to on the iPhone 15 series. These include a new cyan color option as well as a 48MP camera sensor that only the Pro variants get at the moment.
All models will also switch to USB-C and support fast charging via Apple-certified cables and accessories. Plus Dynamic Island, which was a Pro-only feature last year, will become standard across the lineup.
One of the biggest new features for the iPhone 15 is expected to be a better camera. The Pro and Pro Max models could have a new periscope telephoto lens that would provide at least 6x optical zoom, which is significantly more than the iPhone 14 Pro’s lens. The phones could also feature a larger, more advanced camera sensor.
The cameras on the iPhone 15 could also benefit from HDR capturing. This would make images look sharper and more colorful in low-light conditions. In addition, the phones could feature a new face unlock feature that uses the True Depth camera.
Another big upgrade is rumored to be a USB-C port. The move to this standard should make it easier to use third-party accessories and offer faster charging speeds. This is especially important for the Pro and Pro Max models, which are likely to have a faster modem.
The rumors also say the iPhone 15 will get more RAM, which will help it run apps more smoothly. It is also rumored that the new iPhones will use a smaller display driver chip that should result in better battery life. This chip is reportedly made using a 7nm process, which is smaller than the 10nm chips used in the current model.
Camera iphone 15 128gb HDR
If you’re into photography, the iPhone 15’s camera HDR features might be a draw. This feature lets you take a picture of something with different exposure levels, such as a lighthouse and sky. The iPhone can’t properly expose both at the same time, so it ends up either being washed out or dark (underexposed). The camera takes several photos at varying levels of brightness and combines them into one HDR photo.
The iPhone 15’s alleged quad-bayer sensor will give it a head start in this process. Apparently it will capture the image at different brightnesses before merging, which could significantly cut down on processing time and reduce artifacts caused by moving subjects.
Techinsights has a good overview of the camera hardware changes in the iPhone 15. It says that the sensor is 40mm2, nearly 50% larger than the iPhone 14 Pro’s. Its aperture is also smaller, but it should still be able to get plenty of light in.
Analyst Jeff Pu suggests that all standard iPhone 15 models will get the 48MP cameras that the Pro versions got last year, and a new three-stacked sensor to boost light intake even further. This will help make sure that apps work well with the morphing screen cutout and display of the iPhone 15 models.
This year’s iPhone 15 models will likely be compatible with iOS 17. Apple announced the new operating system at WWDC on June 7, and it became available to developers and public beta users the following day. It’s expected to launch on September 20, a week after the iPhone event.
The new iPhone 15 will have a few major upgrades compared to its predecessors. For starters, the shape-shifting Dynamic Island feature that debuted on last year’s Pro models will make its way to all iPhones, according to analysts. In addition, a new titanium frame may give the phone a premium feel and a speed boost thanks to faster Wi-Fi 6E technology.
Also, rumors suggest the base model will get a 48MP camera similar to the one on the Pro models and a “three-stacked sensor” for enhanced light intake. Another upgrade will be 8GB of RAM for the Pro models, which will complement Apple’s A17 Bionic chipset. The standard iPhones are expected to keep 6GB of RAM, reports suggest.
Other rumor improvements include the switch to USB-C and a new ‘For All of You’ row for music in the TV app. But anyone hoping for a bigger display update may have to wait a few years as Apple’s rumored micro LED panels won’t be ready in time for the next iPhone launch.
