Rumors Circulate about Possible Name Change for iPhone 15 Pro Max to “Ultra”
In a surprising turn of events, rumors are spreading that Apple may change the name of its highly anticipated iPhone 15 Pro Max to “Ultra.” Speculation surrounding this potential renaming is fueled by the recent introduction of the Apple Watch Ultra, leading some to believe that Apple is aiming for consistency across its product line.
The primary basis for these rumors is the inclusion of a periscope lens, rumored to be exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max this year but also set to feature in the iPhone 16 Pro next year. This suggests that Apple may be distinguishing the Pro Max as a distinct model within its lineup.
Further supporting this notion are reports from case manufacturers, who have indicated that the Pro Max and Ultra may indeed be separate models. This aligns with information provided by tipster Majin Bu, who claims that the iPhone 15 Ultra will offer enhanced features such as 8GB of RAM, up to 2TB of storage, and improved camera capabilities. Additionally, Bu suggests that the iPhone 15 Ultra will likely be priced $100 higher than the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
While it remains unclear whether the name change will occur this year, insiders suggest that it is more likely to happen next year when rumors suggest a larger screen size of 6.9 inches for the Pro Max. Complicating matters further, case manufacturers have included both “Ultra” and “Pro Max” options in their product listings, adding uncertainty to the exact nomenclature of the upcoming iPhone 15 models.
Interestingly, Bu posits that there may only be one iPhone 15 Pro Max model, encompassing the features of the rumored Ultra model. However, doubts linger regarding whether both tested 6.7-inch Pro models will be released.
With the possibility of a name change and ambiguity surrounding the upcoming iPhone 15 models, tech enthusiasts eagerly await further leaks or the September 12 new product event, which may provide much-needed clarity on Apple’s intentions. As excitement builds, only time will tell what Apple has in store for its loyal customers.
