Now, in the latest Power On newsletter, he says that instead of renaming the Pro Max “Ultra,” Apple may launch a higher-end iPhone above both Pro models. This could happen with the new 2024 iPhone release, so it could be called the iPhone 16 Ultra.
It will reportedly cost more than the iPhone 16 Pro Max, so Apple could bring more camera improvements, a faster chip, and maybe even a bigger display.
Talking about improving the camera, a periscope camera can be found in it. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that only one or the high-end model of the iPhone 16 series will have a periscope camera, so it could be the Ultra model.
Apple may also remove the charging port next year. Hope we can expect faster wireless charging. Earlier rumors said that the iPhone 15 that will be released in the fall of 2023, a year ahead of the EU deadline, will include a USB-C port.
