A day after European Union (EU) legislators voted to ratify a common charging standard to be enforced for all smartphones sold in the bloc starting in 2024, Apple officially announced for the first time at an event that it will switch over to USB-C chargers for its upcoming iPhone devices.
According to projections, the iPhone 15 Pro, the rumoured successor to the iPhone 14 Pro, will have 8GB of RAM and a USB Type-C connection.
Apple has recently introduced the iPhone 14 Pro lineup, which included the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the only two devices this year to include the company’s top-of-the-line A16 Bionic processor. The iPhone 15 Pro versions, which should be released early in the next year, should have upgraded cameras as well.
The next iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models from the Cupertino business will feature Apple’s A17 Bionic processor. The A16 Bionic chip from this year might be included in the non-Pro variants, according to the manufacturer.
Contrary to the current generation Pro lineup, which is rumoured to have 6GB of RAM, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max successors will have 8GB of RAM. It’s important to note that Apple keeps the RAM configuration of their iPhone models a secret.
The changeover to a USB Type-C charger for the iPhone will be required by an EU regulation, according to Apple’s marketing chief Greg Joswiak.
Apple will switch the Lightning port for a USB Type-C charging port, as predicted by the research firm. This is anticipated to be the conclusion of a protracted legal battle between Apple and the EU over a standard charging connector that lasted several years.
The primary camera on the iPhone 15 models reportedly has an 8P lens, according to a Taiwanese research company, but the resolution of the sensor is yet unclear. The telephoto camera on the iPhone 15 Pro Max is anticipated to include 10x optical zoom and periscope capabilities.
While the business continues to work on its own modem, which it claims will be available by 2024, the iPhone 15 Pro series is expected to use a Qualcomm 5G modem. The future iPhone models for the following two years may not include Apple’s 5G modem, according to a previous rumour.
