5 Reasons to Wait for the iPhone 15 & 5 Reasons Not To



Wait for Even Better Cameras

Wait for Even Better Cameras

The iPhone 14 series comes with fantastic cameras and the iPhone 15 series looks like it will build on that foundation.

iPhone 15 rumors have continually hinted at one potential change and that's the inclusion of a new periscope camera.

The rumor comes from respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Kuo believes Apple will install a periscope lens on the highest-end iPhone 15 model, the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

He has reiterated this in a newer report and again says the feature will be limited to just the iPhone 15 Max. A leaker on Twitter agrees and says the feature will indeed be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

If this pans out, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could offer enhanced optical zoom, somewhere in the range of 5x to 10x. This would be a big improvement over the current iPhone lineup.

Another leaker, Shadow_Leak, claims the periscope lens might abandon the "full plastic lens design and use a hybrid lens design."

Leaker Majin Bu claims the iPhone 15 Max will have two front-facing cameras as opposed to one on board the iPhone 15 Pro.

Nikkei Asia says Sony is expected to "supply Apple with its latest state-of-the-art image sensor."

According to the publication, the "sensors can capture more light and reduce overexposure or underexposure in certain settings, enabling a smartphone camera to clearly photograph a person's face even if the subject is standing against a strong backlight."

Kuo also says the iPhone 15 Pro models will come with an improved LiDAR Scanner from Sony. This has been backed up by Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O'Malley who also believe the Pro model will have an improved LiDAR scanner from Sony on board.

The iPhone's LiDAR Scanner provides cutting-edge depth scanning which is useful for photos (Night Mode) and AR experiences. 

Analyst Jeff Pu claims the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be equipped with a 48-megapixel rear camera lens like the Pro models. 

Pu's claim has been back by Kuo who says the lower-end models will indeed have a 48MP rear camera lens with a new stacked sensor setup.

And finally, Taiwanese research firm TrendForce believes the iPhone 15's camera upgrades will the stars of the show.

    It makes sense to me to buy a new iPhone only if you have a much older version, like a 10 or 11 iPhone. Or you want to switch from Android. In other cases, it’s just a waste of money. Another case: there are people who are simply obsessed with buying newer iPhones each year. And there is no point in convincing them that it doesn’t make any sense.
    At the office in Kontorshotell Stockholm, we watched the presentation and personally, I was really disappointed with it. Still, I would not switch to Android.
