Some features of the iPhone 15 releasing in 2023.

We have over a year until new iPhone 15 models are released in September 2023, yet we've been receiving whispers for a while.

The iPhone's Lightning connector is anticipated to be shut out by 2023, with Apple migrating to USB-C.

USB-C Port

Solid State Power and Volume Buttons

Solid state buttons on the iPhone 15 function similarly to trackpads on a MacBook, allowing iPhones to be more water and dust resistant by eliminating the mechanical push system.

Apple might provide 5x or even 10x optical zoom with a periscope lens, up from 3x in the existing iPhone 14 Pro versions.

Periscope Lens

3nm chip technology is predicted to boost processing performance by 10 to 15% while lowering power consumption by up to 30%.

3-Nanometer A17 Chip

The iPhone 15 Pro versions might include 8GB of RAM, up from 6GB, to handle new features such as periscope lens technology.

The iPhone 15 and 15 Pro will be 6.1 inches in size, while the iPhone 15 Plus and Pro Max will be 6.7 inches.

The notch remains on iPhone 14 models. The Dynamic Island is likely to be included to the iPhone 15 range. ‌

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple could swap the iPhone 15's "Pro Max" name with an unique elevated "Ultra" mode.
