Every year, Apple releases four iPhone smartphone models: Mini, Standard, Pro, and Pro Max. This time, the Plus model was introduced instead of the Mini, and a similar lineup is expected to be maintained this year.
However, the company is reportedly revamping its device lineup for the coming year and may launch an iPhone Ultra model, which is said to be the top-of-the-line offering, more powerful than the Pro Max model.
According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple is planning to launch the Apple iPhone Ultra, along with the Pro and Pro Max models, in 2024.
This implies that the iPhone 16 series will include this new offering from the Cupertino-based tech giant. Previously, it was expected that the Ultra model would be released as part of the iPhone 15 lineup to replace the Pro Max model, but it has now been revealed that the Pro Max will remain in the lineup and the Ultra will be a new addition.
According to some reports, the upcoming Ultra smartphone model will be made of titanium, giving it a premium look and feel. Titanium is a superior material to steel because it is scratch-resistant, lighter in weight, and stronger.
There aren’t many titanium-body smartphones on the market, giving the company a unique selling point to potential customers. The material is also expensive, which may result in increased device pricing. The phone is expected to have improved cameras, a faster chip, a larger display, and possibly a portless design without Lightning or USB-C.
