That’s it, the iPhone 14s are official and the most eager fans have already been able to get hold of these new phones. This generation of devices no longer has secrets to reveal, especially if you have read our tests of theiPhone 14 Y 14 ProMaxthe incessant rumor machine has already turned its attention to the next line of iPhones due out in 2023.
An “Ultra” model instead of “Pro Max”
If these phones are not expected before next year, little by little the first information about mobiles begins to appear on the web. And they don’t come out of nowhere since it’s Mark Gurman, a journalist for Bloomberg and source of essential information about Apple, which already provides some details about the iPhone 15 in your weekly newsletter.
According to Bloomberg, the high-end model of the iPhone 15 should abandon the “Pro Max” qualifier to more simply adorn itself with the “Ultra” suffix. A way to harmonize names across product lines, from the most expensive Apple Watch already has this qualifier. Therefore, after the segmentation between “standard” iPhone and “Pro” iPhone, the 2023 range could well be broken down into an iPhone 15, an iPhone 15 Plus, a Pro model and an Ultra model.
Finally USB-C on iPhones
All these mobiles could also mark a fairly clear break with the current iPhone, at least from an aesthetic point of view. If Apple maintains the habit of changing the design of its iPhone every three years (as the company has been doing since the iPhone 6), then the iPhone 15 could have a different face compared to the ranges currently on the market. And that’s not all, after keeping its Lightning port for more than 10 years, Apple could finally switch to USB-C in the next iPhones. The directive for a universal charger promoted by Brussels It is not for nothing and in any case it will force Apple to adopt this standard, unless the brand decides to market an iPhone without any physical port, but that seems risky.
Finally, According to Ross Young, another analyst very knowledgeable about Apple products, the entire iPhone 15 lineup could adopt the “dynamic island” present in the iPhone 14 Pro. Come out of the notch, the pill and its multimedia features should come to all iPhones, regardless of its price. After a market-failing 2022 iPhone lineup, Apple appears to be preparing bigger changes for next year’s models.
