With now forty-eight megapixels on the counter, the camera of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is already very effective. But its capabilities could be even better with the iPhone 15 Pro, which Apple is expected to unveil around September. Indeed, rumors have been announcing for several months now that the technology “periscope“ is on the way for these models.
This makes it possible to reduce the space occupied by the sensor, while increasing zoom power in passing. But a new report signed The Electric ensures that ultimately, only the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be entitled to it. Not the iPhone 15 Pro, therefore, even though to date the main differences between iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are mainly found on the side of the screen.
Better distinguishing the ranges, a real challenge for Apple
This announcement, which corroborates a similar hint published by Ming-Chi Kuo a little earlier, echoes other reports that Cupertino would like to better distinguish its various mobile collections. Another solution would allow it, consisting in reducing the price of certain editions.
In short, in 2023 we could then count on a basic iPhone 15, an iPhone 15 Plus more affordable than the iPhone 14 Plus, an iPhone 15 Pro as excellent value for money and an iPhone 15 Pro Max at the top. Remember also that the latter would have an imposing slab of 6.7 inches, but that the Dynamic Island would also be present on the classic models.
For 2024 on all iPhone 16 Pro?
To go a little further, The Electric explain that the periscope system would still appear on the two iPhone Pro but only in two years. In other words, when the supposed iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro are released, if their manufacturer chooses these brand names.
Until then, other major changes are expected, including the arrival of the famous USB-C socket instead of the current Lightning port. Patents suggest that Apple also knows how to design cameras under the display for selfies, but there is no indication for the moment that such a release is approaching. To find out, you will have to wait: only the manufacturer will have the last word, during its usual keynote organized in California and broadcast on YouTube.
