We’re just a few weeks out from Apple’s typical launch window for new iPhone models, and, according to reputable rumors, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro series are looking like fairly significant upgrades for anyone with a phone that’s more than a couple of years old.

As with the iPhone 14, Apple is expected to continue offering four iPhone models in the iPhone 15 lineup: a regular-sized iPhone 15, a larger iPhone 15 Plus, and Pro versions of both phones with additional features.

We’ll start with the things that all four of these iPhones are expected to get: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the iPhone 14 Pro’s “Dynamic Island” feature will come to all iPhone 15 models, replacing the “notch” cutout at the top of the screen in favor of a floating cutout that expands and shrinks based on what you’re doing with the phone. All phones are also expected to get the customary camera upgrades (including “upgraded lenses” and a wider zoom range), and they’ll be the first iPhones to trade Apple’s proprietary Lightning port for the larger—but generally more capable and standardized—USB-C.
