The iPhone 15 release date is going to be September 12, 2023 and there will be some significant changes. As it was confirmed by this corporation, in this version, a mysterious button and replacement of the charging port is expected. As it is Apple’s most expensive iPhone range ever, here is what to expect from it.
Mysterious Action Button: Do the Rumors Have It All?
The latest images released of Apple iPhone 15, reveals that the previous mute switch has been changed into a flat solid-state design button. It is still unclear what this button does exactly, but the rumor said, as it is inspired by the Apple Watch Ultra action button, the actions might be the same. As INDEPENDENT wrote: “The action button can be programmed for a variety of features. It can be used to open a workout or turn on the torch, for instance.” And Forbes follows: “We know it is programmable with Accessibility, Camera, Flashlight, Focus, Magnifier, Shortcuts, Silent Mode, Translate and Voice Memo functions.”
As a conclusion, this button might be expected to be even more useful than the previous switch if it has the ability to obtain individualized characteristics based on users’ preferences; and on the other hand, it can easily be reached through muscle memory.
USB Type-C Charging Port: Force or Desire
Starting from the iPhone 15, Apple corporation has now decided to replace the lighting charging port with USB-C input. Enhance all the advantages this might have, was it a freedom of choice or the force of The EU mandating which made an obligation for portable electronics, including smartphones, to be standardized around USB-C for charging ports?
No matter what the reason is, it is undeniable that users are going to be relieved as this change made charging and connecting matters much easier due to its universality in comparison to previous lightning ports. There are some words that in this series Apple might have finally provided the 35W fast charging and 20 or 40 Gbps data transfer ability which significantly improve charging and data transferring speed in comparison to iPhone 14 or latest models.
Alongside with MFi color-matched Type-C charging cable which is assumed to accompany iPhone 15 it will also be compatible with both MagSafe and the new Qi2 Standard (for non-MagSafe charging accessories) 15W high-speed wireless chargers.
Camera: Will There Be Any Upgraded Periscope Camera Lens?
This series of iPhone will be released in 4 models, including iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and Apple iPhone 15 Pro max or Ultra as the company named it. all models are assumed to be supported by an improved version of “48MP camera with new triple-stacked lens” as Jeff Pu claimed, but to iPhone 15 Ultra there is expected to be a significant difference due to the improved Periscope Camera Lens provided exclusively for this model.
Analysts have mentioned that in order to offer longer-range optical zoom, Apple corporation is working on its new periscope camera lens which, with the combination of mirror-like design of lenses allow them to achieve 6x, or somewhere in the 5x to 10x optical zoom range. If these claims turn out to be true, there is going to be a new world for smartphone cameras.
Color: No Gold is Expected this Time
Apple is famous for its limited color editions provided for each series and as it comes to iPhone 15, Gold is not among them. As it was mentioned in Macrumors, this series color is going to be Black, Silver, Dark Blue. In this series, in order to have a better match with its Titanium Frame, Titan Gray is expected to take Golds’ place.
Design and Display
For the display size, as the Macworld mentioned “We expect to see the same four general sizes: about 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch for both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro.” Although in this model slimmer bezels resulted in an extremely thin, smoother, more rounded display which due to the replacement of stainless-steel frame with Titanium one expected to be more resistant against physical damages.
There are still some missing parts of this puzzle and every one has their own perspective, it is assumed to be more flexible yet unique as always, however, it is important to wait till more information is released. The Type-C and compatible wireless charging ability, alongside with the expected camera improvements may be considered as this corporation steps toward a more versatile future for its smart devices.
The mysterious button's exact function remains a secret as its iOS 17 features or the chipset. It is even unclear whether this new apple product has made improvement with its Artificial Intelligence Assistance as the world is moving so fast toward the AI based future. It is obvious that we all have to wait until September 12th just to find out.
