iPhone 15 News: iPhone 15 to sport USB-C charging; iPhone 15 Pro Max to feature 8GB RAM & periscope lens: Report

Apple is synonymous with innovation. Each year the Cupertino-based tech behemoth introduces unmatched innovations on its premium smartphones. This year, Apple unveiled its highly-anticipated iPhone 14 series. The Pro models of the next generation iPhones, with their Dynamic Island notch, 48MP primary camera, satellite connectivity, crash detection, etc., are already making waves in the tech circuit.

Now that the iPhone 14 series has hit the market, all eyes are on Apple’s next big innovation. While iPhone 15 is a long way, the Internet is abuzz with leaks and rumours about Apple’s next flagship smartphones.

According to the latest report, the new iPhone 15 series will ditch the lightning charging port and will switch to a USB-C port. The iPhone 15 series will have four smartphones that will come with massive upgrades. Reportedly, the demand for the iPhone 14 has been lower. Now, it seems Apple is focussing on bringing an array of changes to the iPhone 15 series. The low sales of the iPhone 14 series come after a slump in the sale of the iPhone 13 Mini. Apple has, however, discontinued the Mini iPhones.

According to tech portal
TrendForce, Apple will have four new models in the iPhone 15 line-up with two processors to differentiate between standard and top-of-the-line variants. Reportedly, the iPhone 15 Pro models may come with an upgraded 8GB RAM. The enhanced RAM is to match up to Apple’s new processor. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is tipped to feature a periscope lens.

Experts feel that Apple is moving from lightning port to Type C owing to the European Union’s mandate on Type C ports on all devices.

The iPhone 14 series was launched on September 7 at the ‘Far Out’ event. While Apple introduced a slew of upgrades, there has been no radical change in the design of smartphones. The only addition was replacing the mini iPhone with a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus model which essentially had features similar to the standard iPhone 14.
