Reasons to Wait for iPhone 15

Again, while some of these features are not definitive, they are based on leaks from reliable sources. So, whether to buy iphone 14 or wait for iphone 15 depends on how important you see these features.

1. For the dynamic Island

Apple ditched the notch in favor of the Dynamic Island in the iPhone 14, but only for the Pro series. So, if you opt for the Base iPhone 14, you will settle for the notch. All variants of the soon-to-be-released iPhone 15 will have the Dynamic Island in September. So, wait a little longer and you could buy a regular iPhone 15 model and enjoy this feature.

2. For the USB-C Port

Thanks to the new EU regulation, Apple will debut the USB-C port in the iPhone 15 series. If you want faster charging and the convenience of carrying only a charger for your devices, it's better to wait for the new iPhone 15. But the rumored USB-C cable in iPhones may not available for Android phones due to MFi program. It’s a possible problem yet.

3. For the A17 Bionic Chip

With the iPhone 15 Pro series, users will enjoy better speed, better performance and the power efficiency gains of the A17 Bionic chipset.

According to a recent leak, an iPhone 15 Pro benchmark test revealed a single-core score of 3269 and a multi-core score of 7666 for the 3nm processor. These scores surpass the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and position the A17 Bionic chipset as the best in class.

4. For the Periscope Lens

If you're a photography buff and need a smartphone to take things up a notch, the iPhone 15 Pro Max could be worth the wait. The 6x optical Zoom and periscope lens on the iPhone 15 promises to be a game-changer.

Reasons Not to Wait for the New iPhone 15

However, among these rumores, there are also reasons not to wait.

1. Similar Features

If you need a high-end phone right now, the iPhone 14 series is a great option. It has most of the features you will get in the iPhone 15. For instance, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max already have:

  • The Dynamic Island.
  • A16 Bionic chipset.
  • The 48 MP main camera.

Thus, iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max have measured up to the best in class besides AI functions and the new A17 Bionic chipset.

Users on social media also have their say on whether to stick with their iPhone 14 or wait to upgrade to iPhone 15 in September. In this Reddit Thread, user @/KawhiTypeBEATS asks whether to get the iPhone 14 Pro or wait for the iPhone 15 or 15 Pro.

User @/Nort_South_Side replies - "I have zero issues with the 14 Pro. I upgraded from a 7 Plus, and it's perfectly fine. If you need a new phone, get one. This sub is really weird sometimes."

Another user, Connect-Stay-7535 agrees and states - “Yeah, it’s a good enough phone. I don’t think there will be a need to upgrade in couple of years

2. On a Tight Budget

The iPhone 15 Pro model will come in at a higher price due to the new features. So, if you are on a tight budget, you can opt for the iPhone 14. The prices of the iPhone 14 will drop when the iPhone 15 is looming.

3. Under-Display Biometrics

Before its release, there were rumors of the iPhone 14 shipping with the under-display fingerprint technology. This feature would have allowed users to unlock their iPhone 14 using a finger anywhere on the screen. That did not happen and there is no indication it will happen with the iPhone 15.

So, if you already have an iPhone 14 but want this feature, there is no point waiting for the new iPhone 15 as it will not have it. There are indications that this could come with the iPhone 16 in 2024.

Ross Young, a DSCC analyst, shared on the X app (Formerly Twitter) that the under panel IR will not come to the iPhone until 2024, starting with the iPhone 16.
