If you are at least a bit interested in tech and haven’t been living in a cave in recent months, surely you are well aware of some of the improvements that the iPhone 15 has brought to the smartphone scene. There’s a new Bionic chipset (A16), new and improved cameras, better durability, and the examples could continue when we speak about what’s new for the iPhone 15 lineup.
With the end of 2023 being just around the corner, it’s clear that the world will get a new iPhone flagship series in 2024. It will most likely be called iPhone 16, while you can guess what the lineup for the fall of 2025 will be called. Believe it or not, it’s time to speak a bit about the iPhone 17 lineup, which will be released by Apple in 2025, the same year when GTA 6 comes out.
iPhone 17 Pro Max will feature a 48MP periscope telephoto camera
Jeff Pu, who’s an analyst responsible for covering companies within the supply chain of Apple, tells us that the iPhone 17 Pro Max model will be equipped with a 48MP Telephoto lens. The information comes from MacRumors.
Pu also added that the upgraded Telephoto lens of the upcoming iPhone 17 Pro Max will be optimized for use with the Vision Pro headset of Apple, which will come out in the first several months of 2024. That’s pretty much all that the analyst said about the upcoming iPhone’s lens, although we’ll definitely get more information about the phone in 2024, especially after the iPhone 16 lineup comes out.
If we take a look at the camera capabilities of the iPhone 15 models, we can realize that there is still room for improvement, although we may be intimidated a bit because of the specs. The primary camera consists of a 48MP sensor, Dual Pixel PDAF, 26mm equivalent f/1.6-aperture lens, as well as sensor-shift OIS. The ultrawide camera, on the other hand, consists of a 12MP sensor and a 13mm equivalent f/2.4-aperture lens.
iPhone 15 is probably the first iPhone model (also not the last, hopefully) that features USB-C charging. This has happened due to new EU regulations, which means that iPhone users can bid farewell to Lightning ports. Therefore, the iPhone 15 finally aligns with other Apple products, such as the Mac and iPad.
Either way, there is still room for improvement when it comes to the iPhone 15 lineup, as in the case of pretty much anything else when it comes to technology. The standards in the tech world and in the smartphone market always go up, never down. In other words, companies need to adapt or face oblivion, and not even Apple can defy that unwritten rule.
