Several iPhone 14 models are expected to be released in September, including a 6.1-inch model with a standard Lightning interface and larger 6.7-inch models with Pro and Pro Max models. However, USB Type-C connectivity will be added to the iPhone 15 next year.
According to rumours, EU countries and EU MPs will gather on Tuesday (June 7) to discuss and agree on a proposal for the finalization of legislation that unifies the USB Type-C interface.
Popular TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously predicted that the iPhone 15 would include USB-C support. New iPhones expected to be released in 2H23 are expected to include USB-C ports, not Lightning ports, according to my most recent poll. It’s possible that USB-C will boost the speed of iPhone data transfer and charging in hardware designs, but it depends on iOS support, “he tweeted.
The Lightning port is still used by the iPhone, but many other devices, like the MacBook and iPad, have converted to USB-C and enable Thunderbolt 3 or 4.
According to display industry analyst Ross Young, who has a solid track record with display-related information, both the basic and pro editions of the iPhone 15 will sport the pill-and-hole arrangement. This refers to a pill-shaped cutout for Face ID sensors and a hole for the front camera.
Additionally, it’s possible that the iPhone 15 series may have a periscope lens, which would cut down on the size of the camera system.
A pili-shaped notch and a hole for the Face ID sensors and front camera may be seen on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max this year. 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch OLED screens are expected to be used in both handsets.
The iPhone 14 Pro will also have a somewhat thicker body and a much larger viewing area. Additionally, it was alleged in a recent rumour that Apple’s A16 Bionic chip and a 48MP camera will only be available on the iPhone 14 Pro versions and not the ordinary iPhone 14 models.
According to a report, an under-display camera and Face ID are also expected to be included in the high-end iPhones expected to be released in 2024. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for Apple, claims that the first “true full-screen iPhone” will be the iPhone 16 Pro, which is expected to launch in 2024.
