Revolutionizing Apple’s Integration: iPhone 15 to Feature ‘Aggressively Upgraded’ UWB Chip

Later this year, the rumored successor to the iPhone 14 line of handsets, the iPhone 15, is anticipated to be presented. According to rumors, Apple will make significant hardware upgrades this year, including a USB Type-C charging port and faster wireless charging without MagSafe. The Apple Vision Pro, the company’s first mixed reality headset presented at WWDC 2023, may work better with the latest version of Apple’s ultra-wideband chip that will be included in the company’s upcoming iPhone models, according to a market expert.

After introducing the Apple Vision Pro at its annual developer conference, TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said on Twitter that the business would “aggressively upgrade” the hardware specifications of its other devices. According to Kuo, Apple’s product ecosystem is one of the main reasons for the headset’s success. Apple is reportedly trying to improve Wi-Fi and ultra-wideband connectivity, which enable the phone to work with the Vision Pro.

The updated 7nm UWB chip, which will be a significant upgrade from the 16nm U1 chip that Apple has been utilizing since the iPhone 11 to provide services like Handoff, AirTag tracking with Find My, and AirDrop, is expected to be included in the iPhone 15 series, according to Kuo.

According to Kuo, the upgraded UWB chip will be produced by China’s Jiangsu Changjiang Electronics Technology (JCET), one of Apple’s back-end SiP suppliers. It will provide better performance while consuming less power when interacting with other devices nearby.

Kuo has also revealed information about the iPhone 16 series, even though it will still be a while before Apple officially announces the replacement for the iPhone 14 series. The analyst asserts that the iPhone 16 series will support Wi-Fi 7 connectivity, enabling the devices to connect to other Apple devices on the same local network with superior performance (like ultra-high speeds and lower latency).

The iPhone 15 series of devices will reportedly have 48-megapixel cameras this year, a substantial improvement over the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus non-Pro models from the previous year. The A16 Bionic chip used in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is anticipated to power the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, with the Pro models possibly sporting the company’s A17 Bionic chip.
