Apple's USB-C Jump - Consumer Benefit Marketing or a Tech Shift?
“The likely shift from iPhone’s charging port shifting from Lightning to USB-C will be marketed as a key consumer benefit, which is a paradox after Apple pushed back on this standard for many years. It will be interesting to see how Apple manages the transition given potential massive e-waste and the fact it has created a significant accessory ecosystem around Lightning cables," Thomas Husson implied who is the VP and principal analyst of research firm in Forrester.
No Storage Leap on iPhone 15 Pro Max
If you are planning to buy a 2TB iPhone 15 Pro Max, you might get a tad bit disappointed. Apple Inc. has not increased the storage capacity of its flagship phone this year, as per multiple sources. iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max are said to offer the same options as the previous generations which are 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
However, there are chances that they may come with more RAM, such as 6GB or 8GB depending on the storage tier or model.
iPhone 15 to Set Stage for Apple's Spatial Computing Vision
“The paradigm shift that Apple is working towards is the Vision Pro, but don't expect to hear much about that. The company is famously allergic to hype, and Apple will speak about spatial computing on its own terms. But the company is gearing up for spatial computing to enter the Apple ecosystem — the rumored Ultra Wideband U1 chip on the new iPhone will better enable this integration," Dipanjan Chatterjee implied.
