Apple reportedly upgrading iPhone 15 hardware to integrate with Vision Pro's ecosystem


The Apple Vision Pro is indeed quite a hot topic ever since the WWDC 2023 happened. But in a recent tweet by a reliable analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, noted that the iPhone 15 series would be optimised to pair with the spatial headset.

According to his tweet, the iPhone 15 series hardware specifications are going to be "aggressively upgraded" to suit the Vision Pro ecosystem. We may see new specs upgrade of better WiFi and ultrawideband chip (UWB), with the production process to 7nm from 16mn. This will allow improved performance or reduced power consumption for nearby interactions.

Apple products interacting with each other is crucial because of the ecosystem the company built. Currently, the iPhones are now using the U1 chip that first appeared in the iPhone 11 series, as well as the AirTag, Apple Watch Series 6 as well as the HomePod mini.

Furthermore, Kuo also said that the iPhone 16 series is likely to get WiFi 7. With WiFi 7, it's reported to be more conducive to the company's integration of hardware products. Thus, creating a better ecosystem experience on the same local network for the users.

The Apple Vision Pro will be released in 2024 with a starting price of $3499 (~RM16,098) but Malaysia won't be part of the five-wave market. Even so, we don't think Malaysian consumers would even spend that much for the spatial headset. You can visit our news coverage about it to learn more details.
