What are the top improvements to iPhone 15 vs iPhone 14?

According to iPhone 15 rumours, there are apparently over 250 million iPhone units aged four years or older, so the number of people set to upgrade this September is expected to skyrocket!

But it comes down to one very important question, should you buy iPhone 14 or wait for 15? Last year, the iPhone 14 series showed up with impressive technology such as the Dynamic Island, so can the new iPhone 15 top that with some impressive upgrades? 

Keep reading to find out the rumoured improvements to iPhone 15 vs 14!

However, if you've made the decision not to upgrade to the iPhone 15 or iPhone 14, buy a refurbished iPhone for less than new at the musicMagpie Store. Choose from a huge range of models, including a refurbished iPhone 13, refurbished iPhone 12 and refurbished iPhone 11.

USB-C Port

If you haven't been in the know about the USB-C port swap then we'll fill you in. Last year, legislation was passed requiring Apple to make sure all their electronic devices had USB-C ports by 2024 if they wanted to keep selling them in the EU. 

With many wondering will iPhone 15 have USB-C? For a while now, iPhone 15 rumours have suggested that we could see Apple swap out the lightning port for a USB-C port in time for the new iPhone 15

Apple modifies iPhone models based on which region they're being sold, so the iPhone 15 model could possibly have a USB-C port in the EU but not in the US.

However, iPhone 15 leaks have already predicted the USB-C port will be included on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max this year, but we'll just have to wait.

Dynamic Island

Apple fans were thrilled when the Dynamic Island feature was introduced to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max in September 2022. Yes, you had to pay a bit more cash if you wanted this specific feature but according to iPhone 15 rumours, that could change this year. 

The Dynamic Island is essentially an oval-shaped cut-out at the top of the screen and is a pretty handy feature that can display notifications, incoming calls, and alerts without opening or touching your phone. 

Apple iPhone 15 leaks suggest it is likely that all four models from the new iPhone 15 series will feature the Dynamic Island.

Slimmer Bezels

Another iPhone 15 design upgrade suggested by iPhone 15 rumours is thinner bezels. Rumours reckon that the mute button will be swapped for a customisable action button instead.

If Apple goes ahead with slimmer bezels, we could see a slight size increase by 0.1 inches.

Wireless charging upgrade

If you're a fan of wireless charging, then listen up! iPhone 15 leaks reckon all of the new iPhone 15 models will support 15-watt wireless charging using the Qi2 standard. 

In terms of the iPhone 14 and 15, the new iPhone 15 could pave the way for new charging abilities as 15W is currently only available on Apple MagSafe accessories.

iPhone 15 vs 14 camera

The iPhone 14 camera set-up is decent and it even sports a 48MP sensor, which is only exclusive to the Pro models. But we all know that with a new series, comes some pretty amazing camera upgrades.

The iPhone 15 rumours are already suggesting the iPhone 15 Pro Max will get a periscope-style lens which will result in higher optical zoom. iPhone 15 leaks also predict that the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models will upgrade to a 48MP main camera.

So if you're into photography or just want to have the best iPhone camera on the market, we suggest waiting a little bit longer for the new iPhone 15.
