According to MacRumors, Apple plans to replace the “Pro Max” index in the top model of its iPhone 15 smartphone line.
According to information provided by MacRumors, Apple plans to replace the “Pro Max” index in the top model of its iPhone 15 smartphone line with “Ultra”. This news is based on statements by Andrew O’Hara, a prominent journalist and insider. Since 2022, information has been circulating in the media about the possible abandonment of the “Pro Max” designation in favor of “Ultra”. Other influential insiders also reported this, including Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo. However, with the beginning of 2023, rumors about the renaming of the iPhone 15 model fell silent, but before the September presentation, Apple gained momentum again.
O’Hara did not reveal details about the renaming, but noted that the information was confirmed by several independent sources. MacRumors notes that O’Hara has shown accurate knowledge of Apple products in the past, including early renders of the AirPods Pro 2 headphones.
Apple often changes the names of its products at different stages of development, so the change in the name of the iPhone 15 Ultra is not surprising. An example is the situation with the AirPods Max headphones, which were originally expected under the name AirPods Studio, and the operating system for the Vision Pro AR headset began its history as xrOS, but was later renamed to visionOS.
The iPhone 15 series is expected for Fall 2023.
According to rumors, the main difference between the iPhone 15 Ultra model and other options will be the presence of a periscope lens with a six-fold optical zoom.
