Several rumors have been circulating about the iPhone 15 Ultra, which is rumored to launch on September 12th or 13th. According to AppleInsider’s Andrew O’Hara, Apple may indeed be dropping the iPhone 15 Pro Max moniker in favor of Ultra this year. Additionally, the source reveals how the iPhone 15 Ultra will differ from the iPhone 15 Pro.

O’Hara says the periscope telephoto lens will allow the iPhone 15 Ultra to zoom up to 10x range, even though we’d heard previously it would have 5x or 6x zoom capability. The Galaxy S23 Ultra does feature a 10x optical zoom lens, which comes from Samsung’s playbook.

The Samsung telephoto lens uses a 10MP sensor, but we don’t know what type of sensor Apple might use. Another rumor suggests the primary sensor will be a Sony IMX903 almost 1-inch sensor.

The iPhone 15 Ultra could also have a bigger display in addition to better zooming. Like the iPhone 14 Pro Max, we expect this to be 6.7 inches. It is likely that this larger screen will be powered by a bigger battery than the Pro model. We have seen this in previous Pro Max models as well.

In place of the signature Ring/Silent Switch, this new iPhone might feature an Action Button. This rumor has been reported before. An Action Button could serve as a multi-functional toggle, including mute.

A Titanium chassis could house this mute button. A powerful 3nm Apple A17 Bionic processor could also be housed in this stronger body.
