Apple is expected to present a new generation of the iPhone in a few months, and new information about the models was released by analyst Jeff Pu, from Haitong Research. He made comments regarding the start of production of the devices, in addition to the possible price for the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
According to Pu, consumers should “prepare their wallets” if they want to buy the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as the device may come with a higher price compared to the current iPhone 14 Pro Max. The justification for this increase may lie in the amount of features offered exclusively on the Pro models, which should be greater than that seen on the iPhone 14 line.
The analyst also indicated that the devices will begin to be assembled in August, a month after the previously reported forecast. Again, the Pro models must be produced in greater quantity.
It is estimated that approximately 84 million units of the iPhone 15 line will be manufactured in 2023, an amount 12% higher compared to the previous year. However, the exact proportion of assembly for each of the four models is still unknown.
The new forecast is similar to another previously published, predicting a production close to 89 million units.
iPhone 15 should have battery boost
Previous news has already shown that the iPhone 15 should bring a significant battery boost, with up to 4,912 mAh on the iPhone 15 Plus. For comparison, the corresponding predecessor came with a 4,325 mAh tank.
The capacity of the other appliances should be as follows, in descending order:
It was also previously said that the iPhone 15 Pro Max should be the only one in the series to bring a periscope lens, with an optical approach that would jump to 6x, against 3x of the current model.
A specific date for the launch of the iPhone 15 line has not yet been announced, but the models should appear during the month of September. Until then, more information may emerge through extra leaks.
