Aluminum or titanium chassis depending on the model, possibly a tactile key with haptic feedback on the edge of the device, better sensors for the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, appearance of the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models or even USB-C port integration. There will be no shortage of new features offered by the iPhone 15 this year, even if they will, a priori, be discreet. Apple is not going to upset the winning formulaand the changes will be made at the margins, if the information published by Joe Rossignol on X/Twitter is reliable.
The Internet user cites a TrendForce report, in which we learn that “the four new iPhone models (iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max) should, at least total, be produced at 80 million copies “, or 6% more than for the iPhone 14 series. Still according to the expert firm, “the Pro series, equipped with smoother production cycles and the exclusive periscopic lens of the Pro Max […] will account for more than 60% of Apple’s new device production “.
Only the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to cost more than its predecessor, according to TrendForce
We see, the firm of Cupertino is banking heavily on the success of its most expensive smartphones and the best equipped. According to TrendForce, the prices of the iPhone 15, 15 Plus and 15 Pro should remain approximately the same as their predecessors, while the price of the Pro Max model should be revised upwards, up to $100 more to be able to benefit from the periscopic lens, the brand new in-house A17 processor and 2 GB of additional RAM, increasing from 6 to 8 GB on the Pro models.

For this new generation of iPhone, the Apple brand will still offer the same choice of storage, starting at 128 GB. It is also rumored that Apple could even offer up to 2 TB of storage. Knowing that all observers anticipate a significant increase in the price of iPhones, we dare not imagine the price of an iPhone 15 Pro Max with maximum specifications.
