According to reports, Apple is refreshing its naming scheme for the upcoming iPhone 15 series. We might see an ‘Ultra’ model instead of a ‘Pro Max’ the next year. Here, we will take a look at the early rumors surrounding the iPhone 15 series.
iPhone 15 Series Rumors Roundup:
It hasn’t even been a month since the release of the iPhone 14 lineup, and rumors about the iPhone 15 series are already in circulation. Trusted sources such as Mark Gurman and Ross Young point to some significant changes in the upcoming iPhone 15 series next year.
Bye Bye Pro Max, Welcome Ultra
According to the rumors, Apple is bidding a farewell to the ‘Pro Max’ branding and replacing it with ‘Ultra’. We had our first Pro iPhones in 2019 with the iPhone 11 series. As for the Ultra moniker, we recently saw it on Apple’s latest flagship smartwatch. That aside, the Ultra moniker has popped up before with the M1 Ultra.
The possible integration of Ultra branding does not seem that farfetched as Apple already made some changes to the iPhone 14 series naming scheme with the resurgence of the ‘Plus‘ model.
Mark Gurman also believes that the iPhone 15 series will have USB-C charging ports instead of Apple’s proprietary lightning ports. He also added that Apple is already testing this feature well ahead of the EU’s fall 2024 ultimatum.
Dynamic Island for the non-Pro iPhones
Apple could introduce Dynamic Island to all the iPhone 15 models according to supply chain analyst Ross Young. It was one of the main highlights of this year’s Far Out Apple event but only the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max had it.
iPhone 15 Series Launch (Expected)
The iPhone 15 series is expected to hit the market in the fourth quarter of 2023. It will be interesting to see what Apple brings to the table next year. Will Apple finally do away with the Lightning port? Is there going to be a new Ultra model? Only time will tell.
