1/5 The Apple event is going to happen on September 12, 2023. It is expected that the company may launch four new models of iPhone 15. However, the name of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has not been confirmed yet. Will it be changed to iPhone 15 Ultra or will there be an entirely new iPhone? It is still quite uncertain as Apple has remained mum on the issue. But note that the likelihood of an entirely new iPhone (the 5th iPhone) is slim to none. In the meanwhile, just recently, it was reported that the iPhone 15 Ultra/Pro Max may get a battery upgrade, however, it seems like the rumours were false. (Apple)
