According to recent speculations, Apple is attempting to bridge the gap between its ordinary iPhone models and higher-end models with the iPhone 15, which is expected to be introduced in September.
Apple is apparently “seriously concerned” about how certain variants of the iPhone 14 lineup are doing, and is considering to rethink how it treats the lower-end and higher-end models of this upcoming iPhone series.
Rumors say that certain functions that are presently unique to the higher-end “Pro” iPhones will be expanded to all models, and that other newer features will be made available on all iPhone models. We’ve highlighted five innovations that will be available on both the base and higher-end variants of the impending iPhone 15 series.
Dynamic Island is a feature that is now available on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max that combines the new pill-shaped cutout with iOS to display various system alerts, notifications, and more. Dynamic Island is a combination of hardware and software integration that will be available on all iPhone 15 models later this year.
Image Sensor that is ‘State-of-the-Art’
According to a November story, Apple will employ Sony’s future “state-of-the-art” picture sensor, which will generate richer, brighter, and sharper images. The novel sensor employs semiconductor design that separates photodiodes and transistors, allowing for more photodiodes. For example, the new sensor could aid in portrait photography by ensuring that a subject does not appear washed out, even in the presence of strong backlighting. While we expect sensor upgrades to be extended across the series, Apple may eventually opt to preserve this as a “Pro” feature.
Since the iPhone 5, all iPhones have included a Lightning port, whether they are high-end or regular models of any specific iPhone series. With the iPhone 15, that will change, as a recently passed EU law will require Apple to migrate the iPhone, as well as its other devices, to USB-C. The new regulation will apply to all iPhone models, including the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, but there is a catch.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have a new main camera lens that can capture images in 48MP resolution. With a 48MP sensor, the iPhone 14 Pro series captures shots with higher detail than conventional 12MP cameras. According to rumors, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will get the same powerful, high-end camera capability.
Camera features and hardware capabilities have traditionally been one of the most significant differentiators between high-end and ordinary iPhone models. To further differentiate the models, we expect the iPhone 15 Pro to include a periscope lens, something we don’t expect to see across the board.
Faster and More Efficient 5G Modem
All variants of the next iPhone 15 series are believed to include Qualcomm’s X70 modem chip, which will enhance the 5G experience on iPhone. Of comparison to the X65 chip in the iPhone 14 series, the X70 uses artificial intelligence capabilities for quicker average speeds, higher coverage, better signal quality, lower latency, and up to 60% more power.
