About 2 weeks have passed before the presentation of the iPhone 15 family, and now the excitement is at its peak. In this process, as every year, analyst comments, statements and leaks of information about new iPhones continue to appear. According to an Apple analyst, it became clear which iPhone model will be the most popular.
iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the best-selling model
Now prominent Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will make up 35% to 40% of shipments in its lineup. This means that Apple has settled on the most expensive model in this series.
Projected shipments of the iPhone 15 Pro Max before the end of the year also increased by about 10% compared to the 14 Pro Max during the same period. kuo, “This shows that Apple believes that the periscope lens, which is only found on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, will impact sales.” said.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the only model with a new periscope lens that will significantly increase the camera’s optical zoom range. This feature has long been requested by some iPhone users, especially professional photographers, as the technology is already available in other smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
It’s not entirely clear why Apple chose to keep the periscope lens exclusive to this year’s more expensive model, which is said to cost $200 more. The analyst points out that the unit cost of a periscope lens is four times higher than most conventional lenses, so this could be one reason.
However, Kuo also confirmed rumors that a periscope lens will appear in the smaller iPhone 16 Pro next year. The same will happen with 16 Pro Max and 16 Pro Max.
Going back to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, some previous reports suggested that mass production could be delayed due to supply issues. But it seems that Apple has taken care of the situation and this week will begin mass shipments of all new iPhones. The company is expected to sell about 80 million units by the end of the year and 250 million units by 2024.
The entire series is said to feature a new design with slightly rounded edges, a USB-C port and Dynamic Island for each model. The 15 Pro models will have a new display with thinner bezels, a faster A17 processor, and a periscope lens on the 15 Pro Max model.
Apple is expected to announce the date of its special event in September at any time. What do you think? Please don’t forget to share your thoughts with us in the comments.
