Since 2019, the title of Pro Max has always been present in the annual Apple phone lineups, the name fully expresses itself and this is evident in the Pro Max version from that year until 2022, an advanced phone that includes the best possible features and provides the best user experience among all Apple phones, and therefore The Pro Max phone occupied a special place among all phones. It is likely that this happy journey is about to end, as Apple intends to replace the Pro Max version in the iPhone 15 series with a completely new name, iPhone 15 Ultra.
Apple intends to upgrade the user experience further, include additional features, and design the iPhone 15 Ultra as a crushing beast that sweeps all its competitors, so Apple's plans for this phone seem gigantic and powerful, and we are about to see the most perfect and complete phone, perhaps from the American brand.
Although we're still very early in the race and still many months away from the release of Apple's next flagship phone - enough details have emerged on the specifications and price of the iPhone 15 Ultra to give us an initial idea of what to expect from this phone that is expected to be the successor to the Pro Max edition. . Here's what we know so far.
The launch of the Apple Watch Ultra led to Apple’s daring and explicit declaration of its desire to make revolutionary changes in all its devices, which may decide the arrival of the iPhone 15 Ultra this year. Reliable journalist Mark Gurman indicated that Apple's plans in 2023 actually include launching a phone that will replace the Pro Max version, the Ultra version in particular.
Apple aims to widen the gap between the two iPhone 15 Pro And iPhone 15 Ultra By including the best features in the Ultra version, Apple continues to follow a policy of clearly distinguishing between each phone in its lineup, which we clearly witnessed in the iPhone 14 lineup.
If that happens, it could translate into a very high price for the iPhone 15 Ultra compared to Apple's current phones. We expect pricing to start at, say, $1,300, although this seems more like a guess than a solid piece of information. The leaker recently doubled down on these price guesses, and in return it may also be launched for $ 1,200, to be only $ 100 higher than the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Reports also claimed from South Korea that the somewhat weak sales of the iPhone 14 Plus angered Apple, and therefore the company seeks to fix this by fixing the prices of regular phones to be attractive to a larger segment of users, provided that any price increase is applied to Pro phones to achieve the required balance in profit. .
We also believe that the iPhone 15 Ultra will be officially unveiled in September 2023 at the earliest along with other new Apple phones, perhaps in the first ten days of the month, and will be available in all markets around the world by October.
UPDATED: The one thing we're absolutely certain about? The iPhone 15 Ultra will arrive this fall, likely at Apple's September event alongside the rest of the iPhone 15 lineup, with the event scheduled for September 12, 2023.
However, there may be a longer delay before it goes on sale. For some time, there have been rumors that chipmaker TSMC was having issues with chip production, and recently we heard that due to a delay related to “image sensor readiness,” the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or Ultra) will arrive 3-4 weeks later than the rest of the lineup. .
Then again, it may not be late. On August 29, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote on Medium that the iPhone 15 Ultra will ship this week. All four iPhone 15 models are expected to ship at the same time after the event on September 12.
But as we've seen in the past, we don't expect it to be delayed more than a few weeks. For example, the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 12 Pro Max arrived three weeks after the rest of the lineup.
It seems certain that the iPhone 15 Ultra will retain the 6.7-inch screen size that Apple used in the Pro Max phones, and we expect that the Dynamic Island feature that Apple introduced as a replacement for the notch will remain on the iPhone 14 Pro models.
A report from Bloomberg also stated that all iPhone 15 models will come with the Dynamic Island feature. Such a step can motivate more developers to design apps that adapt to this feature, which will enrich the user and software experience.
One of the leaks also talks about the possibility that Apple will adopt the design of the iPhone 15 Ultra on a new titanium alloy structure, a feature that was rumored last year that it would be included in the iPhone 14 Pro models, but that did not happen. Relying on these materials in the design will result in a more durable phone, which we certainly expect from a device bearing the Ultra moniker.
The only obstacle is that this addition may cause an increase in the price of the iPhone 15 Ultra for sure, due to the high cost of titanium, but users may accept that if the feature is present in this phone only. However, the regular Pro version may also come with this feature, so this upgrade probably won't be exclusive to the Ultra version only.
It's widely expected that 2023 will be the year that Apple finally replaces the Lightning ports with USB-C, at least in the Pro and Ultra versions. High-end iPhones will get faster data transfer speeds as well due to their USB-C ports (likely including the Ultra model), while the regular versions will be just as fast as Lightning.
The European Union has already begun to address all manufacturers to oblige them to use USB-C ports in phones that will be launched in European markets by December 2024, so adherence to this global standard in the 2023 iPhone series will allow Apple to introduce a feature that everyone has dreamed of for a long period of time.
In another context, the iPhone 15 Ultra could not come with any port completely, in line with the rumor that has been circulating for years that Apple is working on an iPhone design that does not contain ports. This would certainly be a revolutionary design change for Apple, one we're not sure will happen in 2023, but we'll suffice considering simply switching to USB-C would be a huge step forward for any iPhone.
Cameras remain an important part of any iPhone user's experience, so you'd imagine the iPhone 15 Ultra would come with several huge upgrades in the photography experience and wouldn't be just a regular phone. However, this is still not clear at this early stage.
One of the common possibilities of what we can see in the expected phone is a greatly improved Periscope Telephoto lens. The application of this feature will enable Apple to significantly develop the optical zoom range, to be better than the x3 range in the current iPhone 14 Pro models. It is worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is capable of providing a real 10x optical zoom, which means that Apple is far behind in this file, and there will be no better opportunity than the iPhone 15 Pro to correct the situation.
Of course, one can only guess how powerful the iPhone 15 Ultra will be. We expect the phone to run on the A17 Bionic chipset, which many sources claim will be more efficient than the A16 Bionic in the iPhone 14 Pro models, which in turn could eventually lead to better battery life which is a very acceptable gift for all Apple users.
As for the internal hardware, there is not much, we have the same RAM capacity, which is 8 GB, but there is no version with an internal storage capacity of 128 GB, and therefore the primary version of the phone will come with an internal setup: 8 + 256 GB, provided that there are two versions of 512 GB and 1 TB for whom They want a decent storage capacity to hold all of their files, data, photos, and videos.
Likewise, one of the advantages we hope the iPhone 15 Ultra will bring with it is faster wired charging than all current iPhones, which is only 20W; The Ultra version will certainly need to challenge the faster charging speeds found in the best Android phones, and no one can deny that Apple is facing a huge challenge in that particular regard.
The iPhone 15 Ultra will also run on the latest version of the Apple iOS operating system when it is officially unveiled, and it is expected to be iOS 17. But what the iOS 17 system will look like and the new features are unknown to us at the present time.
In late 2022, iPhone 15 rumors suggested that Apple would follow the Apple Watch and rename the next top-of-the-line iPhone as the iPhone 15 Ultra. Then these rumors died down for a while, with reports indicating that Apple would call the flagship phone for 2023 the iPhone 15 Pro Max, with the iPhone 16 series possibly being the lineup of phones that would see the launch of the Ultra version.
However, by August, rumors had revived suggesting that Apple would indeed use the iPhone 15 Ultra name in its 2023 iPhone lineup.
يُذكر أنه تم تقديم اسم Max مع iPhone XS Max في عام 2018 وتم إطلاق iPhone 11 Pro Max بعد عام. تستخدم Apple أيضًا اسم Max لمعالجات Mac الخاصة بها (M2 Max وM1 Max) وبعض المُلحقات الأخرى مثل AirPods Max.
If Apple chooses to introduce the iPhone 15 Ultra instead of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, it could indicate that rather than being a larger version of the iPhone 15 Pro, it is a phone that has more top-end power and will be better equipped than its smaller sibling.
You should wait for the iPhone 15 Ultra if you haven't upgraded your iPhone in a while and want to experience the best of Apple in 2023. With many highly anticipated features for the iPhone, like USB Type-C, and an improved telephoto lens that will finally bring zoom capabilities Better, and with the jump to the internal chip that's expected to become 3nm and which will inevitably provide much better performance and significant power savings, it's hard not to be excited about the upcoming iPhone 15 Ultra.
You don't have to wait for the iPhone 15 Ultra if you recently got the iPhone 14 Pro Max or are generally satisfied with your current phone. Although the iPhone 15 Ultra represents a complete overhaul of the iPhone world, the iPhone 15 Ultra may not represent a huge qualitative leap compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, so it is advisable to know how the upcoming phone will perform against its predecessor before deciding whether to buy it or not. With so many changes and improvements, there is a high possibility that the phone will release with some issues perhaps.
With less than a year to go until the arrival of Apple's new lineup of iPhones, we're still expecting more rumors to surface about the iPhone 15 Ultra - including confirmation that the phone is already in Apple's plans. However, if Apple wants its Pro Max model to become an Ultra, it will have to offer improvements and features that match the kind of name and higher price the new phone will almost certainly come with.
The ultra-fast A17 Bionic processor backed by good RAM and at least 256GB of storage is a good starting point, and we expect faster-than-20W fast-charging capability to be included, which almost necessitates the move to USB-C. Cameras remain a strength for Apple, but improving the Telephoto lens would augment one of the iPhone's few weaknesses compared to other better camera phones, so we're very optimistic about the Ultra version of the camera. iPhone 15.
