The iPhone 15 is set to include USB C connectivity and a range of other upgrades. According to renowned Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, Apple may make the switch in order to comply with EU regulations.
The new phone will be accompanied by a host of benefits including faster data transfer speeds. It is also anticipated to feature slimmer bezels, as well as an Action button.
LTPO technology is among the newest innovations available in smartphone display technologies. The technology allows smartphones to adjust their refresh rates from 1Hz to 120Hz based on the activities you’re engaging in. When playing video games or reading an ebook, the screen could change to a slower refresh rate to save energy. On the other hand in the case of watching a movie that was recorded at 24Hz, the screen can be switched to a higher rate, allowing for better performance.
Apple began using LTPO on its Series 4 Apple Watch, allowing it to offer the ability to display continuously, without degrading the battery’s endurance. It has iphone 15 256gb since become popular in high-end phones, like the OnePlus 9 Pro, which has an 6.7-inch AMOLED LTPO display that has a refresh speed down to 1 Hz. Apple is the holder of several LTPO patents, and Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants expects the company to use it in the iPhone 17 range, due to launch in 2025.
The iPhone 15 is expected to include LTPO for the Pro Series models and support AOD (Always-On Display). But, the standard iPhone and Plus model won’t have the technology. A Korean blogger has reported that Apple has arranged to deliver displays to the iPhone 15 to domestic companies and will soon start the production process in large quantities.
USB C connectivity
One of the major changes coming to the iPhone 15 is the switch from Lightning to USB-C. It will enable the iPhone to charge at greater speeds as well as reduce wear on ports over time. The device will also work with Mac computer systems and other gadgets which use USB-C. This makes it simpler for people to make use of their phones in conjunction with other accessories.
The change in this case is because of European rules that force Apple to make iPhones equipped with USB-C ports. However, the rumor mill is also suggesting that this improvement in repairability will be improved as it will reduce the number of components and cables needed.
In addition to a USB-C connector, the latest iPhone 15 could be equipped with Thunderbolt 3 support. This allows users to transfer media and other files at faster rates than current iPhones. This is an increase over the 480Mb/s Lightning provides, and it will allow phones to support fast wireless charging.
Alongside faster charging speeds, iPhone 15 will also have faster charging. iPhone 15 could have a bigger battery as well as improved sensor for cameras. The latter will feature Sony’s latest image sensor that doubles the intensity signal for each photo pixel. This allows the camera to record more details as well as eliminate blur. The basic iPhone 15 is expected to come with a main lens that is 48MP and those with the Pro Max model may have a lens of 64MP.
Thunderbolt 3 support
The USB-C port of the new iPhone 15 will be able to accommodate super-fast Thunderbolt 3 transfer speeds. This is significantly faster than Lightning, and will benefit photographers who often need to transfer huge photo 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.
In the moment, Apple’s lightning connector can only support 488 Mbps. That’s considerably slower than the common USB-C connection. However, the company has been striving to improve its connections. The latest iPhone 15 Pro will support up to 40 Gbps, which is a substantial improvement over earlier models.
The upcoming iPhone 15 will feature a new camera function called cinematography. It will allow live 4K Thunderbolt outputs to monitors during recording. This will allow users to connect their smartphone that has all the camera capabilities, to a monitor that displays the live footage without the need for any control.
The new feature is only available to the Pro versions that are available on the iPhone. The versions that are not Pro will only support USB 2.0 speeds. However, the tipster @analyst941 has a theory that the majority of 2H23 iPhones will upgrade over to USB-C, which will allow for wired fast transfers. Based on the most recent study of parts of the supply chain. He also predicts that the new 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max phones will support Thunderbolt/USB 3.2 that is capable of sending information at up to forty gigabits every second.
