Tipster tells iPhone users to hold out one more year and upgrade in 2024

With the unveiling of the iPhone 15 series approximately a month away, many consumers are gearing up to upgrade to the next iPhone iteration. But not everyone thinks that you should be so quick to upgrade to the new iPhone 15 line. X tipster Unknown21, aka @URedditor, (via BGR), says, “After the 15 series is announced, you can expect a ton of shills to overhype it like it’s the most revolutionary thing in the world. I’m telling you straight up – they’re just mediocre, not worth it. 2024 lineup is where it’s at.”
The non-Pro iPhone 15 models are getting some nice improvements this year including the addition of the Dynamic Island and stacked 48MP camera sensors for the Wide primary camera. The chipset that currently powers the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the 4nm A16 Bionic, will be driving the non-Pro iPhone 15 models this year.
The iPhone 15 Pro models should feature a new titanium build and be equipped with the 3nm A17 Bionic SoC. There is a chance that Apple will hike the amount of RAM on the new Pro units to 8GB from 6GB. The iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a periscope lens for the first time in iPhone history which will increase the optical zoom capabilities of the phone from 3x to 6x.

All four models will get a hike in battery capacity and will have a shiny new USB-C port for charging and data transfer on the bottom of the device. This replaces the proprietary Lightning port which was introduced in 2012 on the iPhone 5. The Lightning port took over for the unwieldy 30-pin port that Apple used on the first four generations of its smartphone.

So why wait for 2016? First of all, Mark Gurman has said that next year we will get an iPhone 16 Ultra to promote more differences between the Pro and top-of-the-line model. According to @URedditor, Apple is “experimenting with different things,” which “means that something more promising is ahead.”
What we have heard about the iPhone 16 series is that the iPhone 16 Ultra will reportedly carry a larger 6.9-inch display, and the iPhone 16 Pro screen will be hiked in size to 6.2 or 6.3 inches. Expanding the screen size of the iPhone 16 Pro will allow Apple to include a periscope lens in both Pro models next year. Remember those non-mechanical solid state volume buttons that were originally supposed to be used on the iPhone 15 Pro models this year? We could see them next year. 

So what will you do? Will you upgrade this year or try to make it one more year until the iPhone 16 line is released?
