There are still more than nine months until the official launch of the new iPhone series. However, there is already a lot of speculation regarding this device. According to MacRumors, Apple plans to rename the top version of the iPhone 15 series. Following the usual naming pattern, this version should be the iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, a new report claims that it will be an “iPhone 15 Ultra” just like the Apple Watch Ultra. The report also reveals that the iPhone 15 Ultra has two main production plants. The factories are Luxshare Precision and Foxconn. Apple’s goal is to diversify its iPhone manufacturing partners.
There are also reports that the iPhone 15 Ultra has major changes. Of course, we all know that the charging interface will be a USB Type-C port. Apple had to bow to the EU’s decision to unify charging standards for many electronic devices. The European Union recently issued legislation requiring the use of USB Type-C in all electronic products imported into Europe. The bill would require Apple to replace the charging interface on her iPhone.
Also, while TSMC is working to improve the performance of the A17 chip, there are reports that Apple is more concerned with battery life. The Bionic A16 is already far ahead of its competitors. Therefore, Apple does not need to improve performance at this time.
Giztina news of the week
iPhone 15 Pro Max (Ultra) will benefit from USB Type-C
If Apple doesn’t want to use a USB Type-C charger, the only option is to launch a wireless charging iPhone 15. At this point, wireless charging isn’t mature enough to be the only charging option for mobile phones. Compared to the Lightning interface, USB Type-C has obvious advantages. For example, it supports fast charging up to 100W. Many protocols are supported, and transmission speeds reach up to 40GB/s.
However, Apple’s Lightning technology is outdated, has high latency, unbearable charging speed, relatively poor compatibility, only Apple devices have this interface, and you need a docking station to achieve more functions. you’ll need to buy it. Moreover, according to industry chain information, the basic version of the iPhone 15 will use the same A16 chip as the iPhone 14 Pro series. Only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (Ultra) will exclusively feature the A17 chip based on TSMC’s 3nm process.
In other specs, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra will also get a memory upgrade from 6GB to 8GB. The iPhone 15 could also feature a 48MP camera and a dual punch-hole screen design.
