For the first time in years, there are several contradictions among the experts.
One month after the event Manzana where the family will be officially shown iPhone 15 Along with its new features, some details have been revealed and for the first time, there is great contradictions among the filters.
According 9to5MacApple will hold a presentation event for the iPhone 15 range on Wednesday September 13. The report claims that mobile phone carriers were asked to prevent their employees from taking days off on that date due to the important announcement.
If the company follows the same trend and the rumored release date holds true, then pre-orders for the iPhone 15 series can be expected to start from September 15 of this year.
According to previous leaks, Apple is expected to include a port USB Type-C in the iPhone 15 series. And that all models incorporate the function Dynamic Island, which is currently limited to iPhone 14 Pro models.
It is also speculated that the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will debut the new Apple A17 Bionic chip. For its part, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus could incorporate the Apple A16 Bionic chip that equips the iPhone 14 series.
There is also talk of a action button that would be tactile and have the same characteristics of the Apple Watch Ultra, which have a special key capable of being configured as a shortcut to a special function or menu of the user’s choice.
This button will only be present in Apple’s high-end cell phones (iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max) because the company tries to make the difference between these and the lower-priced ones even bigger.
The rest of the physical keys located on the metal edges of the iPhone would be removed and replaced by a touch version that will use haptic motors that will reproduce slight vibrations at the moment the user wishes to press them and in this way, the sensation produced by touch is replicated.
iPhone 15: contradictions between the leaks
Ming-Chi Kuo and Mark Gurman are two of the most reputable leakers in the Apple category. And although most of the time they coincide in their predictions, this time someone is wrong.
In the most flagrant, Kuo believes that Apple will not present its chatbot in 2024 and that the demand for the iPhone 15 will be much less than that of the iPhone 14. On the other hand, Gurman believes that the company will release its chatbot in 2024 and that it expects to sell up to 85 million iPhone 15 and 15 Pro in 2023.
Ming-Chi Kuo’s sources are in the supply chain, which have told him they are making fewer components for the bitten apple company than last year. That would be a sign that it is expected less demand.
One reason why in Cupertino they could expect lower demand would be the possible price increase of the Pro models, which could exceed the 200 dollars. The same would be due to the change from steel to titanium and that we already saw in the Apple Watch Ultra that made it go up to more than a thousand dollars.
An iPhone with a removable battery?
The European Union has been told to drop Lightning in favor of USB-C and has also been warned that it will not be able to limit the charging speed if the user chooses not to use an MFi charger. The other alternative that arises is that it comes with a removable battery.
From the company they were forceful and indicated their disagreement with the fact that one can open the iPhone to put a new battery if the one that came from the factory is very deteriorated or damaged.
The company points out that they have recently made improvements to make it easier to replace the battery, something that was already confirmed by iFixit at the time. Be that as it may, phones with removable (or easily replaceable) batteries should return to European soil by 2027.
