Rumors Suggest iPhone 15 Pro Max (aka Ultra) May Have a Smaller Footprint and Camera Bump

# The Rumored Features of the Upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max

## Dimensions
The dimensions of Apple’s 2023 top-of-the-line iPhone, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, will be 159.86 mm × 76.73 mm × 8.25 mm. This compares to the iPhone 14 Pro Max’s measurements of 160.7mm x 77.6mm x 7.85mm. This means that the camera bump on the 2023 model will be less “swollen” than the one on the currently available phone. Including the camera bump, the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max will sport a thickness of 11.84mm, making the camera bump 3.59mm thick on the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The camera bump on the iPhone 14 Pro Max is 4.18mm thick, meaning the iPhone 15 Pro Max will carry a camera bump that is .59mm more svelte than the one on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

## Body
The iPhone 15 Pro Max is rumored to sport a titanium body and a periscope lens that is folded up inside the phone. This lens uses prisms and mirrors to reflect light from the camera lens to the image sensor, allowing for optical zoom capabilities that normally wouldn’t be available from a smartphone due to the size of the device. This could increase the optical zoom offered by an iPhone from 3x to the 10x expected to be offered with the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could feature a more rounded look including curved bezels.

## Chipset
The iPhone 15 Pro line could be the only major phones released this year to feature a chipset made using the 3nm process node. As the process node used to manufacture a chip drops, so does the size of the transistors used with this chip. As a result, when the transistor count rises, a chip becomes more powerful and energy-efficient. The A17 Bionic SoC, expected to power the iPhone 15 Pro line, will have a 3nm process node and will feature nearly 16 billion transistors. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, on the other hand, will be powered by the 4nm A16 Bionic chipset.

## Camera
The Wide camera on the back of the non-Pro models is expected to be upgraded to 48MP from 12MP. Both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will feature the Dynamic Island.

It’s hard to believe, but we are just six months away from the unveiling of the iPhone 15 line. We can only wait to see what Apple has in store for us.
