Some rumors about iPhone phones have a seasonal aspect and are repeatedly raised every year; Although apparently many of these rumors never turn into reality. The migration of Apple iPhones from the Lightning port to USB-C is an example of these rumors. But this time it could be different. According to predictions, the iPhone 15 series will use the USB-C port next year.
Another rumor is the use of a titanium middle frame in Apple iPhones. Now a whistleblower has claimed that the iPhone 15 Ultra will finally be made of titanium. This whistleblower is known as LeaksApplePro and has published interesting information about unreleased Apple devices over the past years. The good news is that the information provided by this whistleblower is often accurate. In his latest claim, he mentioned something that fans of titanium handsets have been dreaming about for a long time: the iPhone 15 Ultra will be made of titanium.
It is still too early to confirm the rumors about the Apple iPhone 15 series. The use of titanium instead of stainless steel in the iPhone 15 Ultra is a surprising decision, and Apple will consider this issue for the introduction of its next year’s iPhone. The advantage of titanium over stainless steel is that this material improves the durability and scratch resistance of the iPhone without increasing its weight. Weight is considered a problem in devices such as iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro series phones are equipped with a stainless steel frame between the back and front panels. Although the use of stainless steel has advantages; But at the same time, it also increases the weight of the handset (of course, you will get used to it after some time). The bigger the phone; It will induce a more heavy feeling to users.
Apple currently uses titanium to produce the Apple Watch, and the Apple Watch Ultra is equipped with a large titanium case. According to some experts, Apple has tested a titanium chassis for the iPhone in the past. Before this, even some rumors mentioned the launch of iPhone 14 with a titanium body. But as the release date of this handset approached, it became clear that Apple abandoned such an idea and none of the iPhone 14 family models will use a titanium body.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro with Lightning port
Using titanium to produce an iPhone case will probably cost more than stainless steel and aluminum. For this reason, the use of titanium for the body of the iPhone 15 Ultra seems to be a logical scenario. According to reports, next year, Apple is looking to create more differentiation between iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Apparently, iPhone 15 Pro Max will be launched under the brand name iPhone 15 Ultra. This handset will have several exclusive features and of course a more expensive price tag.
In such a scenario, titanium will probably be one of the advantages of the iPhone 15 Ultra. However, this is only speculation. In addition, regardless of whether or not Apple uses titanium, the front and back panels of the iPhone 15 Ultra will still be made of glass. Due to the advent of MagSafe, Apple still needs the iPhone to support wireless charging technology.
The issue that can be talked about with more confidence at the moment is that all models of the iPhone 15 family next year will be equipped with a USB-C port instead of using a Lightning port. This issue has nothing to do with the use of titanium alloy or the pricing of the handsets. Apple is forced to make such a change; Because the European Union has decided to force electronic device manufacturers to use the USB-C port to charge their gadgets.
