Benzinga – The countdown to the launch of the next iteration of Apple, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone has begun, and a prominent Apple leaker shared details regarding its configuration, features, specifications, and pricing.
One More Step Toward “All-Screen”: Apple will take another step toward having a “truly all-screen” iPhone with no borders around the display and no cutouts for camera or sensors, said Mark Gurman in his weekly Power-On newsletter.
The standard iPhone 15 model will replace the notch for the Dynamic Island, while the Pro and Pro Max displays will be made using a new tech called low-injection pressure over-molding or LIPO, the columnist said. This new process will shrink the border size around the display to 1.5 millimeters compared to 2.2 millimeters on current iPhones, he added.
Gurman said he believes the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro models will get the biggest updates since the device added 5G capability three years ago.
Gurman expects the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus to have the following changes:
Major camera improvements from the previous iteration
An A16 chip that was previously part of the iPhone 14 Pro lineup
A USB-C instead of the lightning connector, enabling faster data transfer speeds for those who still sync with a cable
What Is Known So Far About The iPhone 15 Series:
The iPhone 15 Pro model will have a new design partly made of stronger, lighter and more premium titanium.
The iPhone model design will likely retain the frosted glass back of the prior few phones, but the edges connecting the side and front will likely be less sharp than before.
The iPhone 15 Pro will likely be redesigned to match the revamped aluminum chassis from the regular iPhone 14, making the iPhone 15 Pro easier to repair.
New Pro phones will move to a 3-nanometer chip that is noticeably snappier.
Gurman also said Apple has turned the mute/ring switch into a so-called Action button — like that on the Apple Watch — that users can customize via software.
Delving into the pricing, the Apple specialist said he expects minor price increases across all four models outside of the U.S. At the very least, some of the Pro models will be pricier in the U.S., given the move to titanium and the costlier camera system, he said.
Apple closed Friday’s session at $195.83, up 1.35%, according to Benzinga Pro data.
