With the delays of the iPhone 14 Pro and rumors of some very intriguing features for the high-end iPhone 15 models, you may just want to wait until September 23, 2023 to upgrade. Some of the features we've outlined are new additions that you may want to hold out for.

iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra

Apple packed the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max with features that the standard iPhone 14 models just didn't have. Faster processors, better cameras, and the Dynamic Island make the iPhone 14 Pro far more appealing than the iPhone 13 model, and the same trend will continue for the iPhone 15 Pro.

It is rumored that Apple will give the iPhone 15 Pro Max a better feature set than the iPhone 15 Pro, and that it will be called the iPhone 15 Ultra. It's worth waiting for Apple's highest-end phone if you like the latest and greatest.


If you're a fan of using a single charging port for your Mac, iPhone, and iPad, the iPhone 15 models will be appealing.

It wouldn't make sense for Apple to create a universal version of the iPhone just for one region, so customers around the world will benefit from it.

There are rumors that the iPhone 15 Pro models will support high-speed data transfers. Transfer speeds could go up to 40Gb/s if Apple integrated Thunderbolt 3 support into the iPhone 15 Pro models. 20Gig/s is what we can expect with just theusb 3.2

Faster A17 Processor

The A17 is expected to be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro models. The A17 could be the first chip built on TSMC's next- generation 3-nanometer chip, which could allow for increased performance and reduced power consumption.

Periscope Camera Lens

The periscope lens technology is being used by Apple to improve optical zoom. Apple might use it as motivation to get people to buy a high-end phone because of the high cost and space requirements.

As a result of periscope lens technology, Apple could offer as much as 10x optical zoom, up from 3x. Other manufacturers have implemented these long-range zooms with digital zoom to give them 100X zoom capabilities.

Solid State Buttons

Solid-state volume and power buttons that feel like buttons, but actually aren't, could be added to the iPhone 15 Pro models. It feels like you're pressing down on a button, but there isn't a physical button press mechanism.

It could allow for more features when pressing certain buttons and it could improve water resistance, though it's not clear how the solid state buttons will be used.

Other Rumors

Some of the rumors about the Apple products are more reliable than others. We've heard what you've said.

  • More durable titanium chassis.
  • Curved rear edges that replace the existing squared off design.
  • Qualcomm 5G modem chip.
  • No Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
  • No under-display Face ID.
