After just one week since the release of the iPhone 14, speculation about the iPhone 15 has already begun. This rumour suggests that the premium model may undergo a rebranding and receive new, unique features that Android users have been enjoying for quite some time.
LeaksApplePro, a well-known leaker, made several predictions about the upcoming iPhone in a string of tweets. All four of the iPhone 15 variants, according to the report, will have USB-C ports, which isn’t surprising given that USB-C will be required in the EU. Additionally, they claim that Dynamic Island will be available on all four devices.
I think Apple should move to this lineup next year:
• iPhone 15: $799
• iPhone 15 Pro: $999
• iPhone 15 Pro Max: $1099
• iPhone 15 Ultra: $1399
And keep the iPhone 14 at $699 & 13 at $599 pic.twitter.com/rNHTOUoA0p

There is some device unification occurring here, but LeaksApplePro claims the business will continue to use two-tier chipsets. Accordingly, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus would receive the A16 chip from this year, while the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max would have the A17 chip from the upcoming generation.
However, the leaker’s claim on the iPhone 15 Pro Max was the most intriguing. Apple might rename the Pro Max to the Ultra, according to the rumour. The iPhone 15 Ultra might have features that won’t be found in the other models in addition to a name change. One of these might be 8K video recording, while LeaksApplePro was unsure if it would also be available in the Pro model.
8K video recording has been available for Android users for a long time. If true, it appears that Apple will continue to trail Android in terms of technology.

The tipper also claims that Apple intends to extend the battery life of their phone by 3–4 hours, especially for the Ultra. They estimated that the Ultra’s price could increase by $100, bringing it from $1,100 to $1,200.
As with any rumour, this is all undoubtedly conjecture and should be treated with caution. But ideally, Apple’s upcoming iPhone will be a bigger step forward from the previous generation than the iPhone 14 was.
