There are just days left for Apple to announce the new models of two of its most important product categories: the iPhone and the Apple Watch. On September 12 we will officially see the new iPhone 1515 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. He too Apple WatchSeries 9as well as new accessories. And despite the fact that the Cupertino company does not tend to reveal anything until the moment of the announcement, rumors and leaks have already revealed some of the most notable features of these devices. There are also other features that we expect to see in the different products.
One of the most relevant announcements will be the iPhone 15, which would slightly improve its design with small modifications in the materials, as well as in the shape of the device itself. Apple’s upcoming smartphones, specifically, could arrive with a slight curvature in the backdoing away with that completely flat cutout that came with the iPhone 12. The frames of the Pro models will also be made of titanium, and are expected to have a matte finish.
Another of the great novelties that we expect from the iPhone 15 are the new colors. The base models are expected to be available in pink, white, black, green and blue, with pastel hues. Instead, the Pro models would arrive in black, white or silver, a new titanium gray and in navy blue.
The most remarkable thing, yes, is the arrival of the USB-C connector to all iPhone models, thus eliminating the Lightning port that the company has been including in its devices for years. The new models will also do without the famous silence key, which will be replaced by an action button.
Smaller frames, although without surprises on the screen
The front will also undergo small changes in the design. On the one hand, the base models will receive the so-called Dynamic Island, causing the notch to completely disappear from Apple smartphones. The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, on the other hand, would arrive with considerably smaller framesalthough no major changes are expected on the screen.
In fact, The iPhone 15 and 15 Pro are expected to keep the same diagonal as their predecessors, as well as the same screen resolution, technology and refresh rate. The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, therefore, would arrive with 6.1 and 6.7 inches respectively. In both cases, with an OLED screen, as well as a refresh rate of 60 fps. The Pro and Pro Max models would also keep the 6.1 and 6.8-inch diagonals, as well as the OLED technology, although they will include ProMotion, which allows a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz.
The iPhone 15 Pro will have a new processor
In terms of performance and autonomy, the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max are expected to debut with a new SoC, the chip A17 Bionic about which we hardly know many details. It is likely, yes, that it is built on a new architecture, which will make the chip not only more powerful compared to its predecessor, but also more efficient. This translates into an improvement in autonomy. In addition, the battery capacity is also expected to be higher compared to the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, on the other hand, will include the chip A16 Bionic that currently mount the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro. In this case, significant improvements are also expected in the battery. The four new models, yes, would maintain the same storage configuration, with versions starting from 128 GB to 512 GB in the case of the base models, and up to 1 TB in the Pro variants.
Everything indicates that the cameras will be the protagonists of the new iPhone, as Apple is expected to include new sensors in some of the models. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, for example, will feature a periscope lens for the first time, which could allow photography with a longer optical zoom range; about 6x or 10x. The primary sensor could also change to a higher quality Sony lens compared to the current generation.
The iPhone 15, on the other hand, They could inherit the 48-megapixel camera included in the iPhone 14 Pro, which would allow you to take pictures with greater detail. This camera, in addition, could allow better photographs with 2x zoom because, let’s remember, current models allow this scope digitally, cropping an image taken at 12 megapixels.
It is not expected, yes, changes in the camera configuration of the different models. The iPhone 15, therefore, will maintain two sensors: a wide angle and an ultra wide angle; and the 15 Pro, three: a wide-angle, an ultra-wide-angle camera, and a telephoto lens. In this case, yes, accompanied by a LiDAR sensor to improve focus, portrait mode and more.
The prices of the iPhone 15
From the iPhone 15 we also expect a increase in price between 100 and 200 dollars. At least, that’s how different rumors reveal it. The base model, therefore, would cost more than $1,000, while the higher-storage version of the iPhone 15 Pro could exceed $1,900. These would be the prices of the different models.
|iPhone 15||€1,011||€1,141||€1,401||Not available|
|iPhone 15Plus||€1,161||€1,291||€1,551||Not available|
|iPhone 15 Pro||€1,399||€1,599||€1,799||€2,049|
|iPhone 15 Pro Max||€1,599||€1,699||€1,949||€2,199|
What to expect from Apple Watch Series 9
Beyond the iPhone 15, Apple, we reiterate, will also announce on September 12 the Apple WatchSeries 9. This could arrive without relevant changes, but with small improvements that would make it a much more complete watch.
Apple is expected to keep the 41mm and 45mm sizes, continuing with the same boxy design and slightly curved edges, although it would come with new straps. The company could also add new sensors related to health and sports, as well as a new processor that would give the watch greater autonomy.
It would not be strange to see announced a second generation of the Apple Watch Ultra with slight improvements, including a new black color. Also, new accessories with USB-Csuch as AirPods and a MagSafe battery with this connector.
