First on the “Pro” iPhones, then on the others. It is the strategy of greater differentiation adopted by Apple for some time, to tell the truth, and which on the iPhone 14 was evident as it probably had never been before. Between macroscopic differences the chip and the main camera: on iPhone 14 and 14 Plus SoC Apple A15 Bionic (that of the iPhone 13) and the usual 12 megapixel sensor, on iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max A16 Bionic chip and the unprecedented 48 MP camera .

A lot has been said about the iPhone 15, so much so that in June, with the presentation three months away, there seems to be nothing new to add. And in fact the indiscretion arrived in the last few hours from China does not make “noise”, rather it details what at present seems to be more a fact than a forecast. There 48-megapixel main rear camera should “step” from the Pro range to the standard rangeso on iPhones due out in September, the doors for a resolution – 12 MP – that survives from the iPhone 6s of 2015 could be permanently closed.

On the extension of 48 MP to the main sensor of the iPhone 15 voices were not lacking, in May, for example, it was Jeff Pu who brought the transition to the attention of the press and enthusiasts. Now back to the topic is ithome.com, a Chinese newspaper that became aware of Sony’s increased orders to TSMC for essential sensor components to be delivered to Apple. Without going into the details of the production dynamics explained by the report, the substance is that all iPhone 15s should be able to rely on a 48 MP rear main sensor.

IPHONE 15 PRO MAX, PRICE ABOVE 200 DOLLARS?

Another confirmation on an aspect on which something had already emerged in the past is the price, and unfortunately the latest is not good news. There is no doubt that prices are not falling in a period like this, the best hope is that they remain more or less unchanged. It is not obvious that the starting prices of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will grow, on those of the “Pro” instead most of the voices form a chorus. And not even a little in the case of iPhone 15 Pro Max that could cost $200 more instead of the 100 estimated for 15 Pro.

The largest price increase for the iPhone 15 Pro Max could contribute to the presence of the periscope telephoto lens which has been widely discussed, and which – in summary – should not be part of the iPhone 15 Pro equipment due to internal volume issues (the little one is expected in 2024, when it will no longer be -ino but simply “small”). Periscope or not, $200 more in just one year is quite a lot: today in the American Apple Stores you need at least 1,099 dollars for a 128 GB iPhone 14 Pro Max (1,489 euros in Italy), “tomorrow” it could be 1,299 (and around 1,700 euros in Italy).
