Optical Excellence: Periscope Lens and Zoom in iPhone 15

iPhone 15 models are expected to be revealed in September 12 or 13 the day before, and preorders as well as sales starting the next Thursday (September 22,). This is a normal release timeframe for Apple.

In the CAD leaks, it is believed that the Pro models will remove the Lightning connector and replace it with USB-C, which is compatible with the latest European law. This should allow faster charging speeds.

Titanium iphone 15 plus 256gb chassis

There’s been plenty of talk regarding the many upgrades Apple is rumored to have made in it’s iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (or, according to who you trust the updated iPhone Ultra). A specific feature of the upgrade caught the eye as a titanium. There are reports that Apple will shift from stainless steel to titanium in its Pro models. This would reduce the weight of phones and make them stronger.

It will let Apple to depart from the present flat-sided look and to more closely resemble the curly edges used on new MacBook Pros. These curved edges could bring an elegant look on the phone, while still being enough to enable MagSafe as well as wireless charging.

Titanium is a good choice since it’s light and durable, but it’s much less costly to produce as compared to stainless steel. This means it could offer a better price-to-weight proportion than stainless steel. In fact, it is likely to be cheaper than aluminum. It’s used already in The Apple Watch Ultra and physical Apple Card, so a move to titanium on iPhones is a significant move for Apple. It could also mean an enormous price increase to consumers, contingent upon how much the company would like to invest.

Wireless charging

The coming iPhone 15 series has been the focus of several of leaks, from CAD renderings to speculations about its camera design. However, one of the most surprising reports concerns the wireless charging capabilities. According to a new report from ChargerLab it is believed that the normal iPhone 15 will support fast wireless charging that can reach 15W. This is a significant leap over the current charging speed of 7.5W it is accessible using MagSafe chargers.

The feature will likely to be part of the brand new Qi2 open standard. This is an improved version of the current MagSafe technology. The technology is said to be more efficient and allows for better power transfer between the phone and charger. Additionally, it’s reported to be more durable than MagSafe that can get unwieldy or dislodged with time.

The latest feature may signal an end to Apple’s”walled garden” policy which has previously limited the charging of chargers that are not Apple’s on the company’s phones. If the company can remove its need for MagSafe chargers that support wireless charging at high speeds, it could open the door to others devices such as laptops and tablets that come with a USB C port. This is also a good solution to be in compliance with EU laws that mandate ports to charge devices and also for data transfer.

Fast charging

The latest version of Apple’s iPhone series will be a substantial upgrade in the charging capabilities. While the company hasn’t explicitly made this change known according to industry sources, it is believed that the new iPhones will have faster charging speeds that their predecessors.

However, the fast charging features will be limited to Pro models. There is a chance that the basic model only supports USB 2.0 technology. This won’t give much advantage over Lightning. The Pro model however, could be equipped by Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.2, which will offer blazingly speedy file transfer.

In addition to more efficient charging, the new iPhone 15 is also believed to feature a better camera. It is believed that the ‘Pro’ and ‘Pro Max’ model will get the periscopic lens, which can offer up to six times optical zoom. The Pro models may also retain their 120 Hz refresh rate.

As for the battery on the iPhone 15, rumors are predicting that it’ll come with an 11 to 18 percent larger capacity than its predecessor. The increase in capacity will enable users to use the phone for an extended period of time than is typical. Additionally, the new iPhone will have a 2TB option for storage. That’s double the capacity of earlier versions of the iPhone.
