Apple’s iPhone 15 models could be super-speedy smartphones if fresh Geekbench benchmarks prove accurate. The benchmarks are reportedly for the A17 Bionic chip, which is said to deliver significant performance improvements over this year’s model.
Ming-Chi Kuo has also reported that the iPhone ip 15 15 Pro Max will get a periscope telephoto camera, which should help it compete with Samsung and Google’s zoom performance. The larger phone is also rumored to feature 8GB of RAM.
One of the most exciting iPhone 15 rumors involves the phone’s super-thin bezels. Apple is reportedly able to reduce the borders between the display and chassis, offering a higher screen-to-bezel ratio than ever before. This could mean more space for apps, games, and videos. The new bezels also look much sleeker, which will likely please fans of minimalist design.
This rumor fits with the leaked iPhone 15 Pro Max dummies, which reportedly feature curved edges but keep the display flat. YouTuber Unbox Therapy got a hands-on look at these prototypes, showing off a side-by-side comparison that shows the bezels are much thinner than those on previous iPhone models.
Famed Android leaker Ice Universe has claimed that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have the thinnest bezel black edge of any smartphone at 1.55mm. This will beat the current record of 1.81mm set by Xiaomi 13, allowing for an impressive 93 percent screen-to-body ratio after accounting for bezels and camera cutouts.
The iPhone 15’s bezels will also be 20% and 30% thinner than the Galaxy S23 and iPhone 14 Pro respectively. This is a huge step forward for the iPhone, and it’s also rumored that cheaper iPhone models will be getting Dynamic Island too, so that everyone can enjoy this new design.
From the iPhone 7 onwards, Apple has been offering some form of water resistance on its phones. This has been a great achievement for the company, and there’s plenty of advertising to show it off. However, Apple has always said that its water-resistant phones are not fully waterproof and that you should be careful with it – especially around salt water as this is corrosive.
A recently-granted patent suggests that the new iPhone 15 models will see some improvement in their ability to resist external pressure changes, including those caused by being submerged underwater. This is important because it could help to prevent issues like “deformation of the device due to internal stresses,” as per the patent’s description.
A recent survey has shown that consumers consider water resistance a very important feature. It came in as the second most important factor behind brand and price when it comes to selecting their next smartphone purchase. This is a big change from previous years, when only battery life held this position. The survey used a unique methodology that involved asking users to rank different features as ‘essential’ or ‘nice-to-have’, and then asked them to indicate their willingness to pay for these features. The results suggest that consumers are willing to spend more on a phone with water resistance than they would for one without it.
Camera Slow Sync Flash
The iPhone X’s quad-LED True Tone flash is a key feature, as it helps ensure that your subject isn’t washed out in low light. Apple has also added a software feature called Slow Sync Flash, which combines the flash with your iPhone’s image signal processor (ISP) to slow down the shutter speed while firing the flash.
The result is that the flash illuminates your subject, while the longer exposure time captures enough light from the background to show detail in the image. Without it, a photo with flash would be bright on the subject and dark on the background, giving the image the appearance that your subject is floating in a sea of blackness.
In terms of performance, the new A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 offers a modest improvement over the A14 Bionic chip in the iPhone 12. Benchmarks have shown that it offers about 10 percent faster single-core and 18 percent better multi-core performance.
All of these features add up to a camera that’s closer to what you’d expect from a high-end DSLR than the previous generation. That’s great news for photographers who want to make the most of their iPhone cameras and give their photos a professional look. Most moments only last a few seconds, but with the right iPhone tools and skills, you can bring your photos to life.
