Is the "Pro Max" model becoming the "Ultra"?
In a September 2022 edition of his weekly "Power On" newsletter, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman hinted that the iPhone 15 Ultra may replace the iPhone 15 Pro Max this year. The rumor about the renaming circulated around the end of 2022 and start of 2023 by key sources like Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, but the idea has since faded and the focus has shifted to Apple introducing this model instead as a new high-end device next year.
Now, Andrew O’Hara of AppleInsider asserts that the name "iPhone 15 Ultra" is back in discussion. Though O’Hara doesn't have much history with Apple speculation, he did share accurate renderings of the second generation AirPods Pro before their unveiling last year.
