According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is improving the internal hardware of the iPhone 15 to better integrate with the Vision Pro viewfinder. Specifically, the improvements will be implemented to the ultra-wideband chip of the new smartphone.
The analyst indicated through a post on Twitter that the company “will update aggressively” the hardware of the iPhone 15 so that they achieve better integration with the Vision Pro and, thus, “build a more competitive ecosystem”.
To achieve that goal, there are two key specifications such as WiFi and Ultra Wide Band (UWB).
“It is likely that the iPhone 15 will see an update in its UWB specification, with the manufacturing process moving from 16 nanometers to 7which would allow an improved performance or a reduced energy consumption”, revealed Kuo.
On the other hand, Apple would add WiFi 7 technology to other future iPhone models.
Apple will actively upgrade hardware product specifications to build a more competitive Vision Pro ecosystem
1. One of the keys to the success of Vision Pro lies in the ecology, including whether it can be integrated with other Apple hardware products, and the main hardware specifications related to this are Wi-Fi and UWB.
2. The UWB used in the iPhone 15 has upgraded its specifications, and the production process has been upgraded from 16nm to the more advanced 7nm, which is conducive to improving the performance of close-range interaction or reducing power consumption. …
