Apple’s newest iPhone 14 series is the hottest smartphone on the market right now and even though the device was released less than a month ago, there is news about what the next generation of the iPhone could look like.
One of them is based on the suggestion that Apple could in fact have a smartphone with the “Ultra” moniker next year.
Judging from the direction the company took this year, it ditched the iPhone “Mini” for the new bigger “Plus” iPhone which is within the base model range.
Nothing really changed as far as the outward look of the device is concerned compared to the high-end iPhone 14 Pro series which has the notch swapped out for a “Dynamic Island”.

The path Apple is taking is to make its base model iPhones clearly different from its high-end iPhones.
In fact, the company could take things a little bit more seriously next year according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman who believes Apple plans to call its highest-grade iPhone in 2023 the iPhone 15 Ultra – instead of the usual “Pro Max”.
That could follow in line with the new Apple Watch Ultra which signifies the highest value the company offered in its fitness smartwatch line.
Gurman didn’t share any of the new features coming to the iPhone 15 line, though said he expects Apple to make “bigger changes” to the devices, compared to what we’ve seen in 2021 and 2022.
The fact that the device could get renamed could also signify some improvements even though we have no idea what those could be.
Another important rumor is the fact that the next-gen iPhone 15 series could all feature US-C instead of Lightning port – which is a change obligated by the European Union.
Another interesting thing is the fact that the base iPhone 15 models could in fact feature the Dynamic Island-styled pill-shaped cut-out (like the Pro) models.
This was made known by a popular analyst Ross Young who said the iPhone 14 models are unlikely to get the fast 120Hz display due to issues with the supply chain.
The fact is that there will be a lot of rumors about the next-gen iPhone by 2023 which is why you can take all the above with a grain of salt.
