With rumours suggesting that the launch of the iPhone 15 line-up might get postponed to October instead of getting released in the usual September time-frame, the anticipation about the specifications of the new models is at an all-time high. Here are the rumoured specifications suggested by tipsters so far.
AI to track moods
Siri is already powered by AI but Apple is yet to make a major foray into the field. Dan Ives, an industry insider with Wedbush Securities, told DailyMail.com that the iPhone 15 could be Apple's stepping stone into the AI arena. He claimed that AI features could help the Health app enhance data collection on heart rate, breathing and sleeping and monitor movement, exercise routine and food habits.
Apple may also come up with an AI feature to track the user's moods by capturing speech and analysing text messages, he added.
More megapixels and better photos
'We've heard there is a 20 to 30 per cent improvement than the iPhone 14. This will likely include megapixels and other capabilities around photos that are not even imaginable with the iPhone 14,' Ives told the outlet.
The iPhone 15 might feature the same dual-sensor camera setup, but could also feature the 48MP main sensor while the Pro versions may flaunt the long-rumoured periscope.
Glass-plastic hybrid lens
The iPhone 14 versions feature seven plastic lenses in the primary camera. However, according to Twitter user RgcloudS, a tipster with a track record of leaking specifications of Android devices, the iPhone 15 series might feature a hybrid lens made up of one glass element and six plastic elements in the main camera.
More battery life
According to a staffer at Foxconn, the firm that makes Apple's iPhones, quoted by ItHome, the 2023 versions of the iPhone may get larger batteries.
The iPhone 15 could have a 3,877mAh capacity, iPhone 15 Plus 4,912mAh, iPhone 15 Pro 3,650mAh and iPhone 15 Pro Max 4,852mAh, as per the report.
iPhone 15 Pro models are anticipated to get enhanced performance as they might be equipped with 8GB RAM compared to the 6 GB RAM in the iPhone 14 Pro, according to Taiwanese research firm TrendForce.
A17 Bionic chip
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max might feature Apple's anticipated next-generation 3nm A17 Bionic chip. However, the standard iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will retain last year's A16 Bionic chip.
Leaked images of the purported iPhone 15 Pro case show a wider cut-out at the bottom. This is rumoured to be for a USB-C port that replaces Apple's Lightning port.
The iPhone 15 Pro models may incorporate a titanium frame, inspired by the Apple Watch Ultra compared to the stainless steel frame found in the 2022 Pro version.
MacRumors reported that iPhone 15 Pro models will get ultra-thin bezels compared to the iPhone 14 Pro, according to the leaker, "ShrimpApplePro." The leaker added that thinner bezels and curved edges could give the new Pro models a look that's similar to the Apple Watch Series 7 and Series 8.
