Plus more iPhone 15 phone design changes:

  • iPhone 15 series will have a USB-C port due to pressure from recently passed EU legislation requiring Apple to equip its iPhones with USB-C ports by 2024 if it wants to sell them in the EU.
  • The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are redesigned so they’re easier to repair.
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max camera: Periscope-style telephoto lens which allows for higher optical zoom levels and better capabilities for shooting distant objects. For reference, the optical zoom on the iPhone 14 Pro Max stands at 3x, and the iPhone 15 Plus is 5x.
  • Increased RAM for Pro models to 8GB from 6GB to complement the anticipated A17 Bionic chipset. Base models will continue to receive 6GB RAM.
