Apple is currently gearing up for the launch of its ‘next-gen’ iPhone 15 series of smartphones. The much anticipated series will include iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max models. These handsets are expected to launch in September. The design and specifications of the upcoming iPhones have already been revealed through numerous reports. And now a new report has revealed the standard Apple iPhone 15’s wireless charging support. Let’s take a look at what information has come out about this.
Apple iPhone 15 will now support 15W wireless charging speed even on non-MagSafe chargers
According to ChargerLab’s report, the iPhone 15 will support the Qi2 wireless charging standard. Support for QI2 wireless charging standard means the phone will now support 15W wireless charging on non-MagSafe chargers. In comparison, the current generation iPhone 14 series smartphones only support 7.5W wireless charging on non-MagSafe chargers.
The introduction of support for the QI2 standard will reduce the cost of wireless chargers to one-third of MagSafe chargers. In this case, wireless charging manufacturers would not need to obtain MFI certification, which would help keep their prices low. However, the Qi2 standard already provides support for wireless charging on iPhones. But the exact charging speed of Qi2 wireless chargers will have to wait for Apple’s official announcement
Recently, a report revealed that the company will upgrade the primary rear camera sensor of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models. Since launching the iPhone 6S eight years ago, Apple has been using a 12-megapixel sensor on standard models. However, this time the regular and Plus models of the iPhone 15 series will finally have a 48-megapixel sensor like the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
Also, the upcoming smartphones will also be eligible for the 48-megapixel ProRAW mode. The devices will feature a triple-stacked sensor to improve the quality of the images captured by the camera. However, it is noted that the standard iPhone 15 models will not support the 120Hz refresh rate promotion display. However, the dynamic island above the display of the Apple iPhone 14 Pro series devices will also be seen on the new non-Pro iPhones. The design of the iPhone 15’s display panel was recently leaked, which showcased the Dynamic Island.
Notably, the iPhone 15 series models will be the first to offer a USB Type-C port instead of the traditional Lightning port. Apple is expected to announce the iOS 17 software version at its World Wide Developers Conference 2023 (WWDC 2023) event on June 5, which will bring many new features. Meanwhile, the Tata Group has been quoted as manufacturing the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models in India. The company recently acquired the factories of Wistron, one of Apple’s contract manufacturers, who are planning to exit the Indian market.
