Apple’s “Wonderlust” Event: iPhone 15 Series and New Watches Expected
Apple is all set to host its highly-anticipated event, “Wonderlust,” where it’s anticipated to unveil the next-generation iPhone 15 series and a couple of new Apple Watches. The event is scheduled for today at 10:30 PM and will be live-streamed on Apple’s official website, YouTube, and various social media platforms.
In India, the keynote presentation will begin precisely at 10:30 PM, and for real-time updates, interested parties can also follow live blogs that will bring the latest news directly from Apple Park.
The event marks the return of Apple’s fall iPhone launch, and it’s a moment many tech enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting. The spotlight will be on the iPhone 15 series and the anticipated new Apple Watches.
One of the major rumors swirling around the new iPhone is the potential introduction of a USB-C charging port in place of the Lightning connector. This change aligns with an EU ruling that mandates electronic devices like smartphones to adopt USB-C charging.
The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to feature a new 5G mode paired with the powerful A17 Bionic chip, while the entry-level iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro may utilize the A16 Bionic chip and a previous-generation 5G chip from Qualcomm. The current iPhone 14 series already boasts a custom 5G chip from Qualcomm.
The Pro lineup, consisting of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, is reportedly making use of a titanium mid-frame, which not only makes them lighter but also stronger. Additionally, these models are set to be powered by the cutting-edge A17 Bionic chip, fabricated using TSMC’s advanced 3nm process. The iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to grab attention with the inclusion of a periscopic zoom lens, a feature akin to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
While the official prices are yet to be disclosed by Apple during the “Wonderlust” event, if the tech giant maintains similar pricing to the previous year, the new iPhones may start at ₹79,900 in India. This means that the iPhone 15 could potentially launch at ₹79,900, while the iPhone 15 Plus range may start at ₹89,900 in India.
The Pro models are set to receive a performance boost, thanks to the new A17 chipset fabricated on the 3-nanometer process, promising improvements in both performance and battery life. Meanwhile, the base variants might continue to utilize the A16 chipset from the previous year.
Apple fans and tech enthusiasts worldwide are eagerly counting down the hours to the “Wonderlust” event, where all eyes will be on the latest innovations and offerings from one of the world’s most iconic tech companies. Stay tuned for the official announcements and details about the exciting new iPhone 15 series and Apple Watches.
