The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which arrived in 2022, have a major camera upgrade with a 48-megapixel sensor in the main camera.

Technology analyst Jeff Pu expected the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus to have a 48-megapixel camera sensor. According to a newsletter containing the latest predictions about the iPhone 15 series, which Mr. Pu contributed to Haitong International Securities , an international financial institution, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will use titanium for the housing part, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max will use titanium. It is expected to adopt a periscope telephoto lens.

Rumors that Apple will adopt a periscope telephoto lens for the iPhone have existed for more than a year, and it is expected that this will improve the performance of the iPhone's camera telephoto lens.

In addition, Pooh points out that the adoption of solid-state buttons will be postponed throughout the iPhone 15 series. The solid state button is not a physical button, but a haptic feedback engine 'Taptic Engine' that simulates the click feeling of the button, reproducing the feeling of pressing the physical button without actually pressing it.

In addition to these, Pu expects the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus to adopt a 48-megapixel camera. However, according to information obtained by Pooh, there are some challenges in obtaining enough camera components for Apple to ship the iPhone 15 on schedule. Specifically, the stacked CIS (CMOS image sensor) for the 48-megapixel camera installed in the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is said to be ``continued to monitor production schedule risks''. However, until more definitive information is available, Pooh still expects the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus to launch in September 2023.

In addition, Mr. Pooh said that the Lightning port for charging and synchronizing the device will be replaced with a USB-C port for the entire iPhone 15 series, and the A17 chip that will be newly introduced in 2023 will be installed in the iPhone 15 Pro series, iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. I expected that the A16 chip used in the iPhone 14 Pro series would be adopted.

In addition, Pooh points out that the storage capacity of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, and that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will have an additional 1TB storage model.
