The iPhone 15 is set to have USB C connectivity and a range of other upgrades. According to renowned Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple may move to USB C so that it can comply with EU rules.
This upgrade will also come with a slew of advantages, such as faster speed of data transfer. Also, the phone is expected to come with slimmer bezels and an action button.
LTPO technology is one of the most recent innovations regarding display technology in smartphones. It allows smartphones to dynamically change their refresh rates between 1Hz and 120Hz according to what you’re doing. When playing video games or completing books, the display could be switched to a lower rate to help save energy. However, when watching a video that was recorded at 24Hz or higher, the screen will change to a faster refresh rate for better performance.
Apple initially used LTPO for its Series 4 Apple Watch, allowing it to offer the ability to display continuously, without degrading battery endurance. It has since become popular in high-end phones, like the OnePlus 9 Pro, which uses the 6.7-inch AMOLED LTPO display that has a refresh rate just 1Hz. Apple has a variety of LTPO patents, and Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants is expecting the company to use it in the iPhone 17 range, due in 2025.
The iPhone 15 is expected to include LTPO for the Pro Series models and support AOD (Always-On Display). However, the normal iPhone and Plus model won’t have this technology. An Korean blogger revealed that Apple plans to ship displays for the iPhone 15 to domestic companies and plans to soon begin manufacturing in mass quantities.
USB C connectivity
One of the biggest changes coming to the iPhone 15 is the switch to iphone 15 256gb Lightning to USB-C. This will allow the device to charge faster and reduce wear on ports with time. Also, it is compatible with Mac computers as well as other devices using USB-C. This will make it much easier for users to utilize their phones with existing accessories.
The reason for this change is caused by European laws that demand Apple to create iPhones with USB-C port. The rumor mill has also suggested that this change will improve repairability by reducing the number of components and cables needed.
Additionally, in addition to the USB-C port, the new iPhone 15 could be equipped with Thunderbolt 3 support. It will allow users to transfer videos and other data in a faster manner than previous iPhones. This is an increase over the 480Mb/s Lightning offers, and will allow phones to allow wireless charging at lightning speeds.
Additionally, in addition to speedier charging speeds, in addition to faster charge, the iPhone 15 could have a larger battery and improved sensor for cameras. This will be powered by Sony’s newest image sensor, which doubles the saturation signal in each pixel, allowing the camera to capture more detail and eliminate blurriness. The regular iPhone 15 is expected to include a main lens of 48 megapixels as well as it’s Pro Max model may have an aperture of 64MP.
Thunderbolt 3 support
The USB-C ports on the new iPhone 15 will be able to provide the high-speed Thunderbolt 3 transfer speeds. This is significantly faster than Lightning which will be beneficial to photographers who often need to transfer large image as well as video files to their computers. They may also be able to make use of external high-speed storage drives with greater efficiency.
Currently, Apple’s lightning connector is only able to support up to 480 Mbps, which is far slower than the typical USB-C connections. But, Apple has been striving to improve its connections. The new iPhone 15 Pro will support up to 40 Gbps this represents a major improvement over prior models.
The upcoming iPhone 15 will feature a new feature called cinematography that will allow live 4K Thunderbolt outputs to monitors during making recordings. This will allow users to connect their smartphone that has all the camera capabilities and a display that can display live footage without the need for any control.
The feature will only be available only for Pro versions that are available on the iPhone. It is likely that the non-Pro models will continue to only support USB 2.0 speed. However, the tipster @analyst941 believes that all 2H23 iPhones will upgrade into USB-C to allow wired, high-speed transfer. This comes from his latest survey of components of supply chain. He also predicts that the coming 15 Pro or 15 Pro Max phones will support Thunderbolt/USB 3.2 which is capable of sending information as high as forty gigabits every second.
