The iPhone 15 generation has not yet been released, and there is already information about the successor model. After the first details about the planned camera technology, an analyst is now commenting on further details. This time it’s about both the camera and the built-in radio technology.
From the main camera to the ultra wide angle
As Jeff Pu, market observer at Haitong International Securities from Hong Kong, writes in a report to investors, he has heard from the supply chain that Apple wants to install an ultra-wide-angle camera with an enlarged sensor for the first time in the iPhone 16 Pro, which is expected for September 2024. Instead of the current 12 megapixels, Apple will go up to 48 megapixels for the rear main camera, as is currently the case. In addition to the 16 Pro, the 16 Pro Max is said to be equipped with it. In the ultra-wide-angle mode, more light could be captured and an improved zoom could be used. It can be assumed that Apple uses existing methods such as pixel binning and the so-called super pixels for better pictures in poor lighting conditions.
Pu also believes that Apple will install the new wireless standard Wi-Fi 7 in the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max for the first time. This promises higher throughput rates of up to four times the current Wi-Fi 6E, which Apple is currently integrating into more and more devices. Wi-Fi 7 allows a throughput rate of – on paper – 40 gigabits per second, has lower latency and can combine bands. 4K-QAM is also planned as part of the standard.
Also made information about the iPhone 15
In another research document, analyst Pu also made a prediction about Apple’s planned sales of the iPhone 15, which will be released in September 2023 – across all four variants. According to his estimates, Apple will ship a total of 77 million units later this year. Allegedly, these are adjustments to current deteriorated market conditions. Previously, an order number of 83 million units haunted the scene.
Apple is reacting to internal concerns that a deterioration in demand is expected. The group was recently struggling with a decline in iPhone sales. CEO Tim Cook had also confirmed that fewer devices were being sold in the USA, the company’s main market – even if things had gone uphill in other regions such as China and India.
