There is a lot of speculation about the release date of iPhone 15. Some sources claim it will be on 13th September, but that’s a Wednesday.
It is likely to look a little different from the current lineup, with slimmer bezels and an updated design. Repairability is also expected to improve with the switch to USB-C and faster data transfer speeds.
5G connectivity potential
Apple has been reportedly working on an iPhone 15 model that would have 5G connectivity. It’s been claimed that this variant will offer a faster data transfer rate than the current model and it could also boost the battery life of the phone by up to 50%.
It’s also believed that the non-Pro variant of the new iPhone 15 will have a periscope camera on its back, which will enable it to take high-quality zoom shots. The model will be able to capture photos with a 6x optical zoom and it’s expected that this feature will help the device compete with Android rivals.
In terms of other features, it’s expected that the iPhone 15 will have a USB-C port instead of the Lightning connector and that it’ll support Gigabit Ethernet connections. This will be a welcome change as it’ll make the new phones more versatile when it comes to connecting to other devices.
It’s also been suggested that the iPhone 15 models will continue to use a Made for iPhone (MFi) program to restrict third-party accessories and keep data transfer speeds high. This is a similar approach to the way that the company limits MagSafe chargers, and it’s likely that the same restrictions will apply to the USB-C ports on this year’s new iPhones.
Night mode enhancements
iPhone cameras have gotten extremely powerful in recent years, but low-light photography is still a challenge. A new feature called Night Mode makes things a little easier. It automatically turns on when the phone detects a dark environment and can capture 30 seconds of a photo, but it requires the user to keep the iPhone stable and the ambient lighting at a minimum level.
A leaked firmware update for the iPhone 15 reveals a few features that will further enhance this feature. First, it will be possible to reduce the amount of blue light emitted by the display. This is intended to address concerns about eye strain associated with screen time, from shortened attention spans to interrupted sleep cycles. It works by reducing the brightness of white pixels and replacing them with warmer tones that are less harmful to the eyes.
The firmware will also let users enable a Night Shift schedule that can be set to automatically turn the feature on at sunset or sunrise, and for a specific period of time that can be customized by the user. The other major improvement will be in camera image quality. Apple is expected to raise the megapixels bar on all of its Pro models to 48MP, which will give the iPhone 15 Plus some serious photographic firepower.
Advanced ip 15 plus machine learning integration
It’s expected that Apple’s iPhone 15 will feature advanced machine learning integration capabilities thanks to a new Ultra Wideband chip. The technology will enable Apple Vision Pro to track devices more precisely, thus improving device location services. It’s also said to improve the augmented reality experience with better object tracking.
Another rumor suggests that the iPhone 15’s battery will be improved, enabling it to run for longer between recharges. This could be a major boon for users who use their phones as digital cameras and for video recording.
A new USB-C port will be added to the iPhone 15, replacing the Lightning port that’s been a fixture since the iPhone 14. Sources suggest that it will support Thunderbolt 3 data transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps.
Unlike previous models, the iPhone 15 is expected to be available in a range of color options. According to a reliable Apple leaker, the standard model will get cyan and magenta finishes, while the Pro versions will continue to offer gold and space grey. The back of the phones will be made from titanium, which should provide a tougher build than the iPhone 14’s plastic rear. Lastly, it’s been suggested that the Pro versions will have an optional MagSafe power adapter for wired charging at up to 35 watts.
