A recent rumor out of China indicates that the IPhone 15 Pro The next one will come with a new storage option of up to 2 terabytes. According to information on the Korean Naver blog, a source from a supplier confirmed that each of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will provide double the storage capacity compared to the iPhone 14 Pro models, so why this storage capacity in the new iPhone? What is the date of the announcement of the new iPhone and the date of its launch?
In addition, rumors have recently surfaced via a Weibo account that the iPhone 15 Pro models are expected to start with a base storage capacity of 256 GB, which will be an upgrade from the current starting capacity of 128 GB in the iPhone 14 models.
With this, Apple will have four storage options, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB. And if this happens, the prices of the iPhone 15 Pro models will be raised.
Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and analyst Jeff Bowe say they expect prices for the Pro models to rise this year. As Bo believes that the price of the iPhone 15 Pro can start at $ 1099, up from $ 999 for the price of the iPhone 14 Pro. It is believed that the price of the iPhone 15 Pro Max will start at $ 1199.
In 2021, Apple added 1 TB of storage to the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, and this addition was primarily driven by the inclusion of new camera features such as ProRes video, which uses significantly more storage space compared to standard videos.
For example, to record 4K ProRes video at 30 frames per second, an iPhone 14 Pro with 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage is required. ProRes video recording is limited to 1080p at 30 frames per second on iPhone 14 Pro models with 128GB of storage. And if Apple increases the basic storage capacity of the iPhone 15 Pro to 256 GB, then all models will be able to record ProRes in 4K at 30 frames per second.
We'll know for sure what Apple has in store in just over a month.
The date of the announcement of the iPhone
In a recent report, it is expected that Apple's annual iPhone event may occur on Tuesday, September 12, or Wednesday, September 13, this year. According to Apple's usual schedule, it is likely that pre-orders for new iPhones will be available after a few days, specifically on Friday, September 15th, and the official release will come one week later on September 22nd.
Apple usually sends out media invites about a week in advance, so it's still a while before we get official confirmation of the event date, but additional rumors are likely to emerge confirming things over the next month.
In addition to the announcement of the iPhone 15 lineup, Apple Watch 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 models are expected to be announced, the iOS 17 update and other operating systems, and perhaps some other announcements.
