It appears that everyone is buzzing with excitement over the newly launched iPhone 15 series since its debut on September 12. Although Apple began selling these devices on September 22, the demand for the iPhone 15 has been remarkable, with these gadgets flying off the shelves. Notably, the high-end iPhone 15 Pro Max is already sold out until November. What’s intriguing is that the enthusiasm for this new iPhone isn’t limited to the general public; even celebrities and billionaires are caught up in the frenzy. Not long ago, Indian actor R. Madhavan proudly displayed his recent purchase – an iPhone 15 that was manufactured in India. And now, joining the ranks of iPhone admirers is none other than Elon Musk himself.
Elon Musk, the former head honcho of Tesla and SpaceX, is reportedly considering purchasing Apple’s latest iPhone. It’s worth mentioning that Musk has previously expressed interest in creating an alternative smartphone to compete with giants like Apple and Google. However, the iPhone 15 seems to have left a lasting impression on him. In a recent post on the social media platform X, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared photos taken with the new iPhone 15 Pro Max by photographers Stephen Wilkes and Reuben Wu. Musk, in a comment below the post, lauded the iPhone’s photography capabilities, stating, “The beauty of iPhone pictures & video is incredible.”
With Musk showering praise on the iPhone 15 series, it’s quite possible that he plans to acquire one for himself. Cook shared another post on X, showcasing snapshots from the iPhone 15 launch event at the Apple Fifth Avenue store. The Apple CEO expressed his joy in celebrating the new lineup of products, including the iPhone 15, first carbon-neutral models of the Apple Watch, and the latest AirPods, emphasizing their growing importance. Musk, in response, eagerly commented, “I’m buying one!”
Apple’s iPhones have long been renowned for their outstanding camera capabilities, and Musk’s endorsement is likely to solidify their status as top-tier camera-centric smartphones. Musk’s comments sparked various reactions from X users, with one individual even inquiring about the possibility of an “XPhone.”
Interestingly, there have been persistent rumors for years that Elon Musk’s Tesla might enter the smartphone industry by introducing the Tesla Pi Phone. Previous reports have provided hints about the potential features and specifications of this device. The Tesla Pi Phone is rumored to boast a 6.7-inch OLED display with impressive specifications, including a pixel density of 458ppi, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a brightness level of around 1600 nits.
Furthermore, the phone could potentially come equipped with 8GB of RAM and offer 512GB of storage. Its camera setup is anticipated to include three 50MP cameras, promising exceptional photography capabilities. While Musk’s intentions regarding the iPhone 15 are clear, the possibility of a Tesla phone remains a tantalizing prospect for tech enthusiasts and consumers alike.
