The big screen screams ‘Wonderlust’ at Steve Jobs Theatre.
Dynamic Island for all!
Apple is expected to finally bid farewell to the infamous Notch on the base iPhone 15 variants, replacing it with the Dynamic Island present on last year’s iPhone 14 Pro versions. The notch that has been a hallmark of recent iPhone models was first unveiled with the launch of iPhone X in 2017.
It appears iPhone 15 Pro & Pro Max will have a triple rear camera set-up, and the iPhone 15 & 15 Plus will sport a dual rear camera.
The case of iPhone 15 is already available for sale! It is priced at $45.95 (approximately Rs 4150).
Lightning cable, you will be missed. Also, no running around to look for the Apple charger anymore. So, yay!
Wait… what? Is this for real?
Psst… this is what the Steve Jobs theatre looks like. American tech and social media commentator Lance Ulanoff gives a sneak peek.
