confession time. When Apple announced that its new sturdy and pricey smartwatch was to be named the Apple Watch Ultra instead of the Apple Watch Pro, this writer wondered if Apple was hinting at a change it was making to the Apple iPhone lineup. was planning. In my mind, I thought that maybe next year Apple would release an even higher priced iPhone 15 Ultra that would feature top-of-the-line specs on the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Apple may replace the iPhone 15 Pro Max with the iPhone 15 Ultra
But before I could even start typing, it dawned on me that this would require Apple to use the Ultra name for the iPhone, a name already used by its top rival Samsung. . Apple wouldn’t do what I thought; So yes, you really had the 86’d idea and moved on.

You know you want dynamic islands! Buy iPhone 14 Pro Now!
We already know, or at least it’s rumored, that all four 2023 models will sport the latest amazing Apple feature 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 will make the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra models the first iPhone models to use chips made using TSMC’s 3nm process node.
Apple iPhone 15 line could replace Lightning port with USB-C port
The smaller the process node, the greater the number of transistors that can fit in a small dense space such as a chip. And the higher the number of transistors a chip has, the more powerful and energy-efficient that component is. Apple is reportedly testing a way to move components of the TrueDepth camera (used for Face ID) to the bottom of the display, using a hole-punch for the lens.
We’d be sorry if we failed to mention that all iPhone 15 models could possibly replace the Lightning port with a USB-C port for a long time. But that change could wait for the iPhone 16 because all devices using the European Union (that’s the EU for you and me) wired charging platforms should have USB-C charging ports by the fall of 2024.
