Rumors Swirl About iPhone 15's Titanium Frames and Additional Taptic Engines

Rumors About the Next Line of iPhones - concept of the new iphone 15 pro

Rumors about the next line of iPhones are already stacking up, and by the second half of the year, there will certainly be more speculation about the future models. Recently, analyst Jeff Pu outlined his expectations for the "iPhone 15" line, which he said will include two 6.1 inch models ("iPhone 15" and "iPhone 15 Pro") and two 6.7" models ("iPhone 15 Plus" and "iPhone 15 Pro Max" - or "Ultra"), similar to the current line.

Specifications

In terms of specifications, he expects the Pro models to feature titanium frames and buttons with tactile feedback provided by two additional Taptic Engines. He also expects the top-of-the-line models to have 8GB of RAM1 - compared to 6GB in the iPhone 14 Pro models.

Chip and Modem

Pu also noted that the "iPhone 15 Pro" will feature the "A17 Bionic" chip, manufactured by TSMC's 3 nanometer process, while the "iPhone 15" and "15 Plus" will have the A16 Bionic chip. All four models, however, will be equipped with a USB-C port and Qualcomm's Snapdragon X70 modem, he said.

Camera and Periscope Technology

The analyst also predicts that the "iPhone 15 Pro Max's" telephoto lens will feature the much-speculated-about periscope technology for enhanced optical zoom features - he does not mention the "iPhone 15 Pro," so that could be a possible differentiation point for the future Pro/Ultra models. As for the entry-level and mid-range models, Pu expects the rear camera to have 48 megapixels - like the iPhones 14 Pro.

Launch Date

The analyst also says that Apple plans to launch the next generation of iPhones on September 23rd - however, this doesn't make much sense as the date falls on a Saturday. As pointed out by MacRumors, Pu has a mixed track record in terms of predictions of Apple's future plans, but many of the details he shared about the "iPhone 15" are aligned with what other, more credible sources have said.
