Apple focused heavily on the camera hardware and the new display while announcing the new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models. In comparison to previous year, there have been very few improvements made to the iPhone 14 models this year. In light of the success of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, a well-known analyst has now given his opinions on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
On Twitter, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the iPhone 14 Pro Max is responsible for around 60% of the surge in orders for “Pro” versions. The popularity of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, according to Kou’s subsequent tweet, will lead to additional differences between the iPhone 15 Pro variants. The display and battery size are currently what set the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max apart from one another.
iPhone 14 Pro Max accounts for about 60% of the total order increase of Pro models, benefiting iPhone ASP/product mix for 4Q22.

Apple has asked its suppliers to stop producing the iPhone 14 and concentrate on the “Pro” models due to the high demand for the most recent flagships. The analyst speculates that Apple may decide to widen the gap between the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Additionally, we have already learned that the new periscope lens will only be available on the larger 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max. The iPhone 15 Ultra will only have dual front-facing cameras and 256GB of base storage, according to recent reports.
Apple will ultimately switch from the Lightning cord to USB-C for the regular iPhone 15 models and the “Pro” variants. Keep in mind that it is too soon to draw any conclusions, and Apple will make the final call.
In addition, according to a report from last month iPhone 15 lineup is anticipated to include cutting-edge A17 Bionic Chipset. Given that TSMC has a history of fulfilling significant chip shipment requests from Apple, 3nm based A17 Bionic Chips will likely be produced there. Apple will probably only use the most costly components in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max because these processors won’t be cheap.
Apple is surely pushing it all in terms of providing maximum performance in their flagship lineups. As soon as further information becomes available, we will surely update you.
