Here’s why everyone is going to want an iPhone 15 Ultra this fall
We’re still about seven months away from the unveiling of the iPhone 15, and if the rumors are to be believed, everyone will be talking about one thing: the iPhone 15 Ultra.
Like the Apple Watch Ultra, the iPhone 15 Ultra is rumored to have the best of everything Apple has to offer in an iPhone. As Apple’s largest iPhone, it will feel the same as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but everything will be upgraded inside and out. Among the credible rumors we’ve heard about the iPhone 15 Ultra are:
A bigger screen: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests that the iPhone 15 Ultra could be “an even more expensive iPhone than either Pro model” rather than a replacement for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. That means it could have an even bigger display, meaning it could match or even surpass the 6.8-inch S23 Ultra.
A titanium body: It has been rumored for years that Apple is working on an iPhone that uses a material other than stainless steel or aluminum, and after the Apple Watch Ultra, it makes sense for Apple to switch to lightweight titanium that finally appears. Apple may only offer it in one color, like the Apple Watch, to accentuate the difference.
Solid State Volume On/Off Buttons: Apple will reportedly use solid-state buttons with special haptic motors on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra, eliminating the last moving parts.
periscope zoom: Another feature that has been rumored for a long time is that the iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to get a new periscope zoom, which will reportedly boost the optical zoom to 6x or 10x, with a digital zoom likely to reach 30x or 50x with incredible clarity.
A17 Bionic: After separating last year’s Pro models with the A16 chip, Apple will reportedly do the same in 2023, with the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Ultra getting a new 3nm A17 processor that’s expected to deliver significant speed and efficiency improvements. will yield.
Wi-Fi 6E: After being introduced in the iPad Pro and then the Mac mini and MacBook Pro, Wi-Fi 6E, which is faster and offers more bandwidth than Wi-Fi 6, will almost certainly make it to the iPhone 15. The latest rumors say only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra will have it.
Lightning strike: The iPhone will almost certainly switch to USB-C this year, but while the non-Pro models are still lightning fast, the Pro and Ultra models will reportedly have transfer speeds as fast as the iPad Pro thanks to Thunderbolt support.
More storage space: When Samsung are Galaxy S23Ultra in February it included a nice surprise: an increase to 256 GB of base storage. Last year, Apple was rumored to bump up storage for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max to 256GB on the low end, so we’re hoping buyers get twice as much storage this year.
That’s a long list of features that will make the iPhone 15 Ultra the most desirable phone of all time. And maybe more to come: Unknownz21 on Twitter, which leaked the schematics showing Wi-Fi 6E and solid state buttons, says it has “discovered an apparent new feature/change” on the iPhone 15 Pro and Ultra and will spill the beans “when deemed appropriate”. So start saving now, because there’s another feature of the iPhone 15 Ultra: it’s probably going to be the most expensive iPhone of all time.
