Users can expect the Pro models to feature the A17 Bionic chip, while the standard models would stick with the A16.

TrendForce expects the 15 Pro models to come with an additional 8GB of RAM to complement the A17 chip, compared to 6GB for the iPhone 14 Pro models. Standard models will likely continue to feature 6GB of RAM.

The switch from Lightning to USB-C has been widely rumored for iPhones, with the European Union passing a law requiring such a change earlier this year.

In line with previous reports, the research firm expects the iPhone 15 Pro Max to feature a telephoto lens with periscope functionality, allowing for 10x optical zoom or more, compared to the current 3x limitation. The Pro models are expected to have an upgraded primary lens with an “8P” design, which would be an additional optical element for better camera performance.

TrendForce says iPhone 15 models will still feature a Qualcomm modem for 5G because Apple isn’t yet happy with the mmWave performance of its in-house modem. The research firm believes Apple will introduce its own 5G modem in 2024.

Apple will likely announce the iPhone 15 lineup in September 2023.
