Apple plans to use Dynamic Island in all four iPhone 15s that will be released in late 2023. Currently, only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have an island.
Mark Gurman of Bloomberg said that the iPhone 15 series will offer the same screen sizes as the iPhone 14. According to him, the model names will remain the same – only the generation number will change.
Dynamic Island is an area at the top of the iPhone display that replaces the notch found on previous models. With the help of software, Dynamic Island takes on various forms and supports live action, displays system alerts and other information. Earlier insiders have already claimed that Dynamic Island will be available on all four iPhone 15 models – now this information has been confirmed by Gurman.
Another confirmed innovation is USB-C instead of Lightning on all four models. USB-C is the universal charging standard and offers faster data transfer rates than Lightning. The European Union also requires support for a single universal charging standard.

According to Gurman, the iPhone 15 Pro will receive a titanium frame with touch-sensitive volume buttons. The Taptic Engine will simulate the feel of pressing buttons, similar to how the iPhone SE’s home button and the new MacBook trackpads work.
But the iPhone SE itself may soon go down in history. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has informed suppliers that it is canceling its low-cost fourth-generation smartphone in 2024. The analyst previously claimed that the release of the new iPhone SE would be canceled or delayed, but now he is firmly convinced of the cancellation.
According to early reports, Apple planned to introduce the first native 5G chip in the fourth generation iPhone SE – apparently this will not happen now. Apple will likely continue to rely on Qualcomm’s 5G chips until 2024, in the iPhone 15 and 16 series. The iPhone SE was supposed to be a test platform for its own 5G variant. This was due to the fear of insufficient chip power in comparison with the competitor’s solution.
The third generation iPhone SE was released last March with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X57 5G modem. It is likely that the iPhone 15 models will use the Snapdragon X70 modem, while the iPhone 16 will use the not-yet-announced Snapdragon X75.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 15 series in September as usual.
