Apple's implementation of USB-C in the iPhone 15 is expected to be a contentious upgrade from a legal standpoint. However, a recent leak has generated excitement among iPhone fans regarding the camera features of the upcoming release.

Respected leaker Unknownz21 claims to have received independent confirmation that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will exclusively feature a periscope lens. While this rumor has been circulating for some time, it was initially met with skepticism as it would mark the first time the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max would differ significantly in terms of camera capabilities. (Correction: In the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, Apple used different cameras, but the resulting image quality was nearly identical. This may not be the case if the iPhone 15 Pro Max incorporates a periscope lens.) Historically, aside from battery life, the Pro and Pro Max models have offered similar features, with size preference being the primary deciding factor for consumers.

However, it appears that the iPhone 15 lineup may change this pattern, potentially leaving fans of smaller phones with a dilemma. They will either have to forego the most advanced camera features or opt for a significantly larger smartphone than they would prefer. This development represents a notable shift in Apple's product strategy, and consumers eagerly await official announcements to confirm these leaked details.
