According to Jeff Pu, Apple’s entry-level iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus could come with a new 48-megapixel three-stacked sensor for the wide-angle camera. This higher resolution sensor would let the base iPhone models capture better wide-angle photos and videos. However, these models are unlikely to get the telephoto lens with optical zoom as well as the LiDAR scanner exclusive to the Pro models. Both these devices will also reportedly use the Apple A16 Bionic chip that powers the current generation of iPhone Pro models. Pu’s note also corroborates earlier reports claiming that the iPhone 15 Pro will likely get virtual buttons for the volume and power operations. He also indicates Apple will not change the screen sizes on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models.

Those seeking groundbreaking updates should look for the more expensive iPhone 15 models. Jeff claims these devices could feature a 12-megapixel periscope lens that would enable a better, clearer, and extended zoom range. These reports align with earlier statements by noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in which he talked about the likelihood of the Pro models getting a periscope lens with 6x optical zoom. The Pro iPhones will also likely use Apple’s new A17 chip based on TSMC’s newest 3nm manufacturing process and will finally make the switch to USB-C.
