Since the first news began to arrive about the future iPhone 15, it began to become quite clear that Apple intends to further increase the difference between the “basic” models (it is strange to use the term basic to refer to an iPhone, but I already you understand) and the Pro and Pro Ultra versions (which in the current generation is the Pro Max). The last thing we’ve heard about it is that its bezels could become the smallest on the market , and I’m sure there will be more leaks in this regard over the past few months.
It is also true that some of the innovations that were expected in the iPhone 15 Pro seem that they will not finally arrive. Specifically, I am referring to the much-touted design without buttons, a daring in terms of interface design and user experience. However, let’s remember that similar fears arose when Apple removed the Home button on the iPhone X , something that seemed too risky, but that over the years has become a standard not only for Apple, but for the smartphone market in general. . As I said, however, it seems that a design problem has forced this change to be postponed to a future generation .
It makes sense, logically, to make a clear difference between the normal and Pro models, although in this differentiation Apple must also act with some measure. Let’s remember that all iPhone models are clearly in the high-end range, so Apple must improve the Pro, yes, but not at the cost of reducing the iPhone and iPhone Plus , as it is something that their users most likely , would fit very badly … and rightly so.
Thus, and as we can read in MacRumors , the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will share the main camera with the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Ultra . But before detailing this, it is important to make a precision, and that is that we are not talking about the set of cameras that make up the main camera, but about the main sensor of both. As you know, the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus have a camera made up of two elements, a main 12-megapixel main and an ultra-wide angle of the same resolution. For its part, the 14 Pro have a much more advanced capture system, of which the main element is a 48-megapixel camera.
Well, according to the report cited in said publication, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will make the leap to mount a new version of said camera , which would be integrated into its main camera and, at the same time, it is the new version that also it will be used to update the 15 Pro and 15 Pro Ultra, so the main image capture element of all four models in the family will be the same, at least in the next generation.
Now, that same report talks about some production problems , so we will still have to wait to see if this is confirmed and if this affects the presentation and launch date, or if Apple decides to go back and reassemble a Lower quality sensor on the 15 and 15 Max.
