New Apple iphone 15 Leaked Shocking To Everyone: What Is The Truth?

Apple’s iPhone 14 line introduces a disputed first: it is the first iPhone series to be produced with various chipset generations. Many people thought this was an isolated incident brought on by the global chip shortage, but the first iPhone 15 leak holds a surprise.

While the iPhone 14 has only been out for a week, Apple has already decided to save its next-generation A17 chip for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, according to a recent report from Nikkei Asia. This is more significant than it was for the iPhone 14 lineup.

Although there are slight performance differences between the A15 and A16, both chips are far superior than the competition, making the differences less significant. The major issue is no significant improvement in battery life from the A16, but this appears poised to change with the A17.

After using 5nm variations for the A14, A15, and A16, the A17 will be Apple’s first 3-nanometer manufactured chip, according to Nikkei. This cutting-edge technology enables the A17 to operate faster, cooler, and with less power consumption than its predecessors. Yes, this appears to be the first processor in four years to offer notable year-over-year improvements in performance and battery life, but only for Pro buyers.

According to Dylan Patel, principal analyst at Semianalysis, according to Nikkei, “Apple is expected to exploit the varied levels of production tech to introduce bigger disparities between its premium and nonpremium models.”

The first iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max teardowns have been finished, despite the fact that they only began shipping to customers yesterday, unintentionally revealing a crucial aspect of the iPhone 15.

The teardowns, carried out by YouTuber WekiHome, show that both iPhone 14 Pro variants come equipped with Qualcomm’s X65 modem. It supports more bands in the high-speed 5G “mmWave” spectrum and is more efficient than the iPhone 13’s X60 thanks to Qualcomm’s “PowerSave 2.0” technology. Additionally, it was declared back in May 2021. You can watch a youtube video by clicking on it.

Given the delay, there was conjecture that the newer, “X70” chip from Qualcomm, which was unveiled in May 2022, would be included in the iPhone 14 lineup. The X70, according to Qualcomm, can achieve mind-blowing download and upload speeds of 10Gbps and 3.5Gbps, respectively. However, the company’s claim that it is 60% more power efficient is the actual selling point.

The X70 is now a lock for the iPhone 15 range since the X60 and X65 offer a distinct pattern. Additionally, the X70 and a 3nm A17 chip together imply that this lineup has the potential to offer battery life that will change the game. With the anticipated switch to USB-C for Pro versions, 2023 already seems to offer some of the fireworks that the 2022 devices lacked.

Display expert Ross Young confirmed to me in a conversation that Apple will include the pill-shaped notch and “Dynamic Island” capabilities in all iPhone 15 models. The major qualification is that Young continues to believe that 120Hz/LTPO “ProMotion” won’t be available on ordinary iPhone 15 devices since the “supply chain can’t support it.”

The good news comes first.

At Apple’s iPhone 15 unveiling this week, Dynamic Island was the star of the show. In the typical Apple way, the corporation turned the physical drawback of a large cutout into possibly the most compelling reason to purchase an iPhone 14 Pro model through creative software. The best notification and status system an iPhone has ever had, it is slick and understandable.

It makes sense to include it in all iPhone 15 models, and anyone turned off by the price of the iPhone 14 Pro (which, outside of the US and China, increased in the majority of nations globally), now has a compelling reason to move up a generation.

The awful news comes next. For years, flagship and even midrange Android phones have come equipped with high refresh rate displays. It seems odd for Apple to release an $800 iPhone 15 in 2023 without it.

Young continued by saying that, as Apple’s supply chain partner BOE gradually boosts the output of the LTPO panels the company utilizes for ProMotion, he thinks 2024 is more likely. Young probably has a point, given his impressive track record, but I have no doubt that Apple could change its supply chain requirements if it truly intended to make the feature available to all customers.

In any case, Apple’s continued omission of ProMotion makes a lot of strategic sense as it attempts to create a greater and greater distinction between its Pro and non-Pro iPhones. After all, the iPhone 14 has already demonstrated that Apple is content to mostly maintain the status quo with its regular models if doing so will achieve this objective.

Cost also serves as the rationale for this tactic. When switching from 5-nm to 3-nm circuits, Patel predicts a cost rise of “at least 40% for the same area of silicon.” Everything about this screams “vintage Apple”: “If you want the best, we will make it, but you’ll have to pay the premium.”

In a nutshell, Apple’s new “Pro” approach is to keep widening the difference between Pro and non-Pro devices across all product categories (iPhone, iPad, Mac, and MacBook) in order to establish a distinct line and encourage upselling. It is a strategy that already appears to be effective. According to well-known expert Ming Chi-Kuo, pre-orders for iPhone 14 Pro models greatly outpace those for non-Pro versions.

As per Forbes, Nikkei claims three sources for such information but reports that TSMC, Intel, and Apple (unsurprisingly) declined to comment. Which implies that we ought to treat it seriously.

Apple’s upcoming iPhones are already looking like ground-breaking technology, with USB-C hotly anticipated for the iPhone 15 Pro variants. But if their pricing reflects this, don’t be shocked.
