Here are some more details about my excitement for the next iPhone1.

Besides the camera upgrades, here is a short list of things I’m looking forward to with the next iPhones.

  1. I’m going to the Max. It’s the first Max model that I’m getting2.
  2. I expect better battery life than the iPhone 14 Pro Max3. I want a real all-day battery life for when I travel abroad.
  3. I never liked the current chrome finish of the Pro line (since the iPhone 12 Pro)4. I like the titanium finish of the Apple Watch. I can’t wait to see the tweaked version for the iPhone5.
  4. I’m ambivalent about the rumoured action button. I’ll want to configure it for the camera capture, but I want to keep the mute button.
  5. The always-on display… I’m not sure. My wife has an iPhone 14 Pro, she disabled the always-on display because of the battery drain. I’ll see with the Max.
  6. I’m curious about the grey version, but I will go either with a deep blue6 or the darkest one7.
  7. I love the Dynamic Island. My hope is to see wider adoption by developers.
  8. Finally, USB-C. Finally. 95% of the time, I charge my iPhone with MagSafe. It’s too convenient. On rare occasions, it will be handy to grab any normal USB-C cable and plug it in. As for transfer speed, I’m not in any use cases for this8.

I’ll catch you on the other side of the Wonderlust event.

  1. Just in case someone actually care. 😜 ↩︎

  2. Screen content displayed is barely more than the Pro, yet, I’ll take all the pixel the iPhone has to offer. ↩︎

  3. At the very least, much better battery life than my current aging iPhone 13 Pro. ↩︎

  4. The chrome look on anything always felt like cheap luxury to me. I prefer textures. ↩︎

  5. I expect Apple to offer a different texture. ↩︎

  6. I’m curious about anything that is blue. I could wait until iPhones make their way to the Apple Store, but I won’t be able to last that long. I’m looking for videos in the hands-on area at Apple Park for a cue about the colors. ↩︎

  7. The black matte iPhone 5 was the best of all. ↩︎

  8. Will this enable iPhone-to-iPhone transfer between an iPhone 15 Pro and an iPhone 17 Pro? 🤔 ↩︎
