The iPhone 15, Plus, Pro, and Pro Max were among four 3D replicas of the iPhone 15 series recently displayed by the tech media outlet, Mac Otakara. The absence of the notch on the front of the phone, which is visible in the image, suggests that the iPhone 15 series may come with Smart Island. Recall that Apple introduced the notch with the iPhone X back in 2017. This feature has stayed with every iPhone since then. However, it appears that the notch design has now come to an end.
The iPhone 15 and Plus still have dual cameras + a 60Hz refresh rate + an A16 chip. However, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max have triple cameras + 120Hz refresh rate + A17 chip. Thus, the iPhone 15 series will continue the approach of the iPhone 14 series. That is, the Pro models will be way better than the standard models.
A17 Bionic chip
It is worth noting that this series also does not have a mini model. The recent exposure does not have a mini model. The mini, which was produced for only two generations, might also be forgotten. Apple might start a new outbreak quickly after years of slowdown. On the most recent Geekbench 6, the single-core running score of the A17 hit 3956 points. The multi-core score hit an unsettling 8841 points. This is similar to the score of the mobile M1 chip.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max’s A16 running score is merely 2493 for single-core performance and 6173 for multi-core performance. This reveals how much the A17 improves over its predecessor. But, since there isn’t a lot of specific info in this running score chart, the validity must be established. In other ways, the Internet has made the design specifics of the iPhone 15 series available. A curved right-angle frame could be used in the iPhone 15 series, which would likely increase the grip.

Also, the interface makes it clear that Apple switched from the Lightning port which had been used for many years, to USB Type-C. Many sources claim that Apple’s Type-C interface this time around may be encrypted but the wire will maintain its MFi certification.
Why iPhone 15 prices will rise
You might not be aware that since the 2017 release of the iPhone X, Apple has continued to price its high-end versions at $999. This includes the most recent iteration of the iPhone 14 Pro (the iPhone XS Max is still priced at $1,099, while the Pro Max starts at $1,099). According to securities expert Jeff Pu, the iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max will defy this unofficial “tradition” this year. According to his source, Apple was under more financial strain due to the titanium frame, A17 Bionic CPU, higher RAM capacity, solid-state buttons, and periscope optical zoom lens of the iPhone 15 Pro/Pro Max. This is a possible reason for the price increase of the iPhone 15 series.
It does not seem strange that this adjustment will eventually be implemented in the U.S. market. It is Apple’s main market and the company frequently raises the price of its phones in places outside North America. This time, the expert said nothing about whether the price of the iPhone 15 / Plus will increase. The 14/14 Plus starts at $799 and $899, respectively, in the North American market.
Apple may feel that the iPhone 14 series is short in features, which is why the future iPhone 15 series has a sizable jar of upgrades. Aside from the visual and interface changes, if the A17 performs as horrifyingly as the leaked running score indicates, the performance gap that the Android lineup has finally closed may need to be extended once more. Of course, this means that other chip makers like Qualcomm and MediaTek have a whole lot of work to do.
