Big Changes and Higher Prices: What to Expect from the iPhone 15 Pro Lineup

Big Changes Expected for iPhone 15 Pro Lineup

Some big changes are expected to be introduced to the iPhone 15 Pro lineup for this year, but they may come along with higher prices as well.

According to Bloomberg, reporter Mark Gurman confirmed a few details that have been circulating all year about what to expect when the next iPhone lineup is announced in just over a month.

The two new “Pro” models will come with titanium frames, instead of stainless steel, making them stronger and lighter, according to what was seen by Agency.

Thinner Bezels and New Display Technology

Their screens will also have thinner bezels, thanks to the new display technology, which results in a reduction in the size of the black frame by almost a third. Previous leaks show what that might look like.

Gorman expects the mute switch to be switched to a customizable button and the “Lightning” charging port to be replaced with “USB-C”.

However, all of this may come at a higher price. Gorman expected an increase in prices outside the United States, and he “would not rule out an increase in prices in the United States,” either. This follows reporting earlier this week and an analyst’s note that prices could go up by as much as $200 when it comes to the “Max” model.

Gorman also pointed to two other big upgrades to Apple devices this year. The standard iPhone model is expected to drop in favor of Dynamic Island, making it more on par with the Pro models. While the screen refresh rate will remain at 60 Hz, compared to 120 Hz for almost all similarly priced Android phones.

Gorman also reports that the next Apple Watch processor, the S9, will see “somewhat significant performance bumps,” marking the first noticeable speed increase since 2020.

Apple usually announces new iPhones and Apple Watch in mid-September. They will face Samsung’s new lineup of foldable phones, which was unveiled last week.
