Is it a brand new iPhone Slim or ought to we count on a slimmer iPhone 17 Professional Max subsequent yr?

The iPhone 16 sequence is not out but and already we hear talks in regards to the iPhone 17. One significantly juicy rumor factors to what some individuals name “iPhone Slim”, a mannequin that’s reportedly going to be slimmer. Some say it’s going to come as a substitute of an iPhone 17 Plus, others, that it is going to be a separate “Extremely” mannequin, pricier than a Professional Max.

Now I am questioning although. Might Apple certainly be planning to have a slim iPhone 17 Professional Max and never a separate mannequin? Might this be one of many causes that Cupertino can justify a worth hike for the Professional iPhones? Let’s discuss it!

The iPhone 17 Professional Max might have a design change… and lose some weight

Do not get me fallacious, I like the massive display screen and I undoubtedly need Apple to maintain it. Rumors a couple of gigantic iPhone 16 Professional Max had me hyped, and I simply do not wish to think about a smaller Professional Max mannequin now.

Nevertheless, it is getting heavy. Even my iPhone 13 Professional Max is a really heavy factor (particularly when it falls on my face in mattress at evening) and it would not harm for it to turn into lighter.

The iPhone 15 Professional launched the titanium body, and it helped, considerably. The 15 Professional Max weighs 221g whereas the iPhone 14 Professional Max – 240g. As for the Professionals, the state of affairs is analogous. The iPhone 15 Professional weighs 187g, whereas the 14 Professional – 206g. Nevertheless, each telephones are nonetheless heavier than the common iPhone 15 which weighs in at 171g.

We hear from rumors that the iPhone 16 Professional Max will probably be one pill of a cellphone. I like that on the subject of the massive show. However the weight is one thing that Apple may enhance on, in addition to the thickness.

Think about an enormous and smooth iPhone 17 Professional Max with a gorgeously big show, however skinny and slim thus weighing much less. It might be supreme (so long as it would not sacrifice battery). I really feel this makes way more sense for an ‘iPhone Slim’ than a separate mannequin.

iPad Professional M4 technique for the iPhone 17 Professional Max?

Apple had a great deal of surprises this yr with its iPad occasion. Alongside beautiful OLED screens and a brand new Apple Pencil, the iPad Professionals received an enormous design enchancment. They received slimmer. The truth is, Apple itself stated in the course of the occasion that the 13-inch iPad Professional M4 is the slimmest Apple product ever.

We even have a worth hike from 2022’s iPad Professional with M2 and this yr’s iPad Professional with M4. The iPad Professional M2 (12.9-inch) was initially beginning at $1,099, whereas the brand new one begins at $1,299. Yep, we’ve a barely larger display screen, the aforementioned skinny profile, and extra storage to start with (and all of the luxurious M4 talks). However the thinness can also be an element.

This has me considering. If Apple is certainly trying to worth the Professional Max iPhone increased (as an ‘Extremely’ mannequin, perhaps?), why will not it slim it down? Coupled with another extras, the brand new lighter and slimmer Professional Max will appear justifiable for the next price ticket.

I am questioning… why would Apple make a completely separate product and name it an “iPhone Slim” or an “iPhone 17 Extremely”, as a substitute of constructing the Professional variations slimmer and thus extra high-end. Apple is already in search of methods to broaden the hole between the bottom iPhones and the Professional-branded ones. This could possibly be one other supreme choice to make this hole even larger.

One subject arises: Apple has accomplished a “separate iPhone” factor earlier than

The rumored “iPhone Slim/iPhone Extremely” technique attracts parallels to the iPhone X again in 2017. On the time, Apple launched the common iPhone 8 (which, by the best way, I proudly carried as a each day driver till 2022) and eight Plus. After which, as a “separate iPhone”, one thing not seen within the sequence up to now, Cupertino launched the iPhone X (redesigned, Face ID launched).ย 

So there is a precedent for Apple launching an everyday iPhone 17 lineup accompanied by a flowery iPhone Extremely (Slim or not). However to me, it appears fairly unlikely. First off, we’re manner too early for the rumors to be even 80% sure. Second off, I battle to see the explanation.

In 2017, the iPhone X got here on the ten-year anniversary of the iPhone. It marks a brand new technology, a brand new path, and realizes a imaginative and prescient.

Additionally, with the iPhone X, Apple supplied separate options to totally different consumers. Earlier than that, we had one premium iPhone (or an enormous and a smaller model of it). Now, we’ve 4 although, so loads of decisions for consumers. If Apple had been to launch 4 iPhone 17 fashions and an Extremely, that might begin to turn into difficult to consumers. Additionally, if Apple launched 3 “common” iPhones and a 4th, slim iPhone, that’d additionally appear unusual, for my part. And Apple is all about simplicity, is not it?

iPhone Slim? Slim iPhone 17 Professional Max?

What appears to me essentially the most logical is that Apple will launch 4 fashions: two common iPhone 17s and two Professional-branded ones. And the Professionals will probably be slimmer. The truth is, the Professionals will probably be that rumored “iPhone Slim”. They usually’ll include a worth hike, justified by their new “thinnest Apple product” look and a few different issues that we’re but to seek out out.
However after all, we have no onerous proof and I do not know anyone working in Apple, so I’ve no probability of understanding for sure if my hypothesis is true or not. Nevertheless, based on my expertise being an Apple fan, I consider my idea makes an entire lot of sense.
