Rumored specifications and functions for the Apple iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max include a 6x periscope zoom camera (15 Pro Max), 6.69-inch/6.12-inch displays with thinner bezels, a titanium frame, a programmable Action Button, larger batteries, the 3nm Apple A17 chipset, up to 2TB storage, a USB-C port, and a starting price increase of $100.
The iPhone 15 Pro line will offer lighter titanium frames and slimmer bezels compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max models. Notable design differences include the 5x-6x periscope zoom camera on the 15 Pro Max and the replacement of the mute switch with a flush Action Button that can be customized for various functions. The iPhone 15 Pro line will also feature improved battery life, thanks to the new processor and larger battery packs, as well as USB-C charging and data ports.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to feature new 48MP cameras, a Dynamic Island cutout, the 4nm Apple A16 chipset, larger batteries, faster LPDDR5 RAM, a brighter M12 OLED display, and a USB-C port. These models may also adopt Samsung’s 12th gen OLED display technology, previously reserved for the Pro models. The Dynamic Island cutout and USB-C port will become standard across the iPhone 15 line.
The starting price for the iPhone 15 is expected to be $799, while the iPhone 15 Plus may start at $899. The iPhone 15 Pro is rumored to have a base price of $1099, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max may start at $1199, reflecting the premium design, materials, and hardware specifications of the iPhone 15 Pro line.
