iPhone 15 release date what iPhone 15 update

By | August 25, 2023

As you know already, Apple in September 2022 released the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, but we’ve been hearing rumors about the iPhone 15 since well before the latest iPhones became available for purchase. Now that launch is approaching, rumors are picking up and we know a good deal about what to expect this year.

While the iPhone 14 Pro models made some waves last year with the release of the Dynamic Island and a 48-megapixel main camera, that was about it in terms of transformational changes. The iPhone 15 series, on the other hand, lines up with a major release window in that three-year cycle and is expected to be among the best iPhones to date.

iPhone 15: release date

Gurman reported that the iPhone 15 series would launch at an Apple event on either September 12 or September 13, with an expected release date “around” September 22, his sources said.

iPhone 15 Pro Release Date

The new series of Apple iPhone is making its launch soon in the technological market. Ever since the launch of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 pro on 12 September 2022, the tech geeks have been assuming the iPhone 15 to launch on 12 September 2023 with all new iPhone 15 Features and specifications. Apple Brand hosts the annual event for the launch of the latest series of their Apple Phones named as the iPhones. All the tech geeks can see all new features which are being introduced in the new series of the Apple iPhone 15 which will be seen in the launch event of Apple Brand which is likely to be hosted on 12 September 2023. Major changes will be seen in iPhone 15 Features along with the latest specifications.

Many viewers have been looking for the announcement of the iPhone 15 Pro Launch Date. No announcement has been made but it is expected to be out on 12 September 2023. The new iPhone 15 is expected to be more than $1000 in cost. In this post, one will be able to find the latest information on the newly launched iPhone.

What’s Changing?

First of all, that’s the only thing that looks like being different. I am sure the Apple special event where these products will see the light of day will be on Tuesday, September 12 at 10AM Pacific, in a pre-recorded keynote. It’ll be shown to press and guests in the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, Cupertino, I believe, and broadcast online.

And the other date, when Apple announces the special event, will be next week, perhaps on Wednesday, August 30 or Thursday, August 31.

No, what’s changing comes after that. Apple’s keynote will introduce four new iPhones (plus two new Apple Watches). The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro will go on sale on Friday, September 22, with pre-orders happening the week before, probably from Friday, September 15.

But the iPhone 15 Pro Max looks like being delayed. According to 9to5Mac, who heard it from “a major equity analyst note”, one component exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be in short supply, meaning that it won’t arrive until early to mid-October. All four phones will be revealed at the same time and it’s possible Apple will have some stocks so it won’t announce a different onsale date for the Pro Max.

Why The Delay?

The reason for the delay is a Sony component, an image sensor that’s not going to be on the iPhone 15 Pro. It’s thought the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a periscope camera for the telephoto lens. As you know, a periscope camera doesn’t pop up and down out of the camera body, though how fun would that be? Rather, it uses mirrors to reflect light into the body of the phone, thus elongating the focal length. This means that the telephoto lens has a zoom equivalent greater than the 3x found on the current Pro iPhones.

It’s not the first time the Pro and Pro Max phones have been distinct, and differences in the cameras between iPhones are nothing new. They define the Max as the most capable, as well as the biggest and priciest iPhone.

iPhone 15: price

Though the standard iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Plus are not expected to see year-over-year price increases, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models are likely to increase in price relative to their iPhone 14 series predecessors, the Barclays analyst Tim Long says in an investment note which was first reported by MacRumors and has been cited by numerous tech and financial publications.

In exchange for a more durable, titanium design with thinner bezels, the starting price for the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to increase by $100 to $1,099, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max could go up as much as $200 in price, with a projected starting price of $1,119 or $1,299, Long says.

iPhone 15: cameras

iPhone 15 Camera

This year, the entire iPhone 15 lineup is expected to receive a 48-megapixel main camera, ITHome reports (via The Verge), along with a now-standard 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. 
The iPhone 15 Pro is expected to receive an additional 12-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to get a new 5-6x optical-zoom-periscope lens, Ming-Chi Kuo says. 
He also says the lineup’s 48MP main camera will be of a new stacked sensor design that will allow for better low-light performance.

iPhone 15: battery life

The iPhone 15 is expected to feature up to a 15% boost to its battery capacity, ITHome reports. ITHome says that the base model iPhone 15 will see that 15% figure while the iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max will see 12%, 12%, and 11% increases in battery capacity, respectively.

iPhone 15: design

Gurman reported the iPhone 15 lineup would have “thinner bezels” than last year’s iteration and the iPhone 15 Pro models would have a “titanium frame that feels lighter and more premium than the current stainless-steel design.”

While a thinner bezel can be attractive for those who remember the days of early iPhones with their chunky designs and massive borders, this change is ultimately likely to be a minor one, and the enthusiasm for it is probably misplaced, as Insider’s Kai Xiang Teo reports.

iPhone 15: USB-C

In a far bigger change, it is widely believed that the entire iPhone 15 lineup will be ditching Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector in favor of a USB-C port and various speeds of connectivity.

iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models are expected to get USB 3.2 speeds whereas the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus should expect Lightning-equivalent USB 2.0 speeds, but in the USB-C format, Ming-Chi Kuo says.

This move is set to bring Apple in line with the rest of the industry on this front and earn them a respite from the ire of European Union regulators who forced the change on the tech giant; Apple has until late 2024 to comply with the new law and is expected to roll the change out globally rather than creating a region specific variant of every phone. The goal of EU regulators is to create a universal standard for all devices.

Apple’s change to USB-C as a smartphone charging standard could mean that a plethora of USB-C accessories and gadgets will technically become available to iPhone users, which would allow for easier interconnectivity as more devices move to USB-C in the coming years.

iPhone 15: Dynamic Island

The Dynamic Island, first introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro lineup, is expected to see improvements this year and roll out to all iPhone 15 models, Ming-Chi Kuo says.

Ming-Chi Kuo expects that the iPhone 15 lineup’s renovated Dynamic Island will include an integrated proximity sensor. That sensor would be used to detect when the phone is being held close to the user’s ear so that it can turn off the display to help prevent accidental key presses from being detected. In the iPhone 14 lineup, this sensor was included separately under the screen.

Color Options

The iPhone 15 models could be available in dark pink and light blue color options. Apple often offers the standard iPhone models in a range of bright colors, and this year is no exception.

The bright pink and blue shades are likely to be available alongside the standard black, white, and PRODUCT(RED) color options that have been made available in prior years.

According to leaker Unknownz21, Apple has used several different colors for iPhone 15 prototypes. Colors that Apple considered include pink (or a rose gold/blush gold shade), green, blue, yellow, orange, and black. According to 9to5Mac, the iPhone 15 models will be available in black, blue, green, yellow, and pink.

iPhone 15 Pro Exclusive Design

While all iPhone 15 models are going to adopt the USB-C port, there are some design changes that are exclusive to the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.

Rumors suggest the iPhone 15 Pro models will feature thinner, more curved bezels than the iPhone 14 Pro models, which can be seen in renders of the device created based on circulating details. These deeper curves will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models, and the iPhone 15 models will continue to look like the iPhone 14 models with flatter edges, an aluminum frame, and a glass front and back. We are not expecting the same slimmer bezels for the standard iPhone 15 models.

Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro lineup is expected to feature more curved front glass that better disappears into the frame, and Apple is expected to use titanium instead of stainless steel for the chassis. The iPhone 15 Pro models will also feature an “Action” button that will replace the mute switch, and that will be able to do different things like activate Shortcuts, turn on the camera, turn on the flashlight, enable silent mode, and more.

Frosted Glass?

An unconfirmed rumor from Weibo has suggested that the iPhone 15 models could feature a frosted glass back, which has previously been a design detail that Apple has limited to the Pro models. Standard models typically have a glossy black, while the frosted glass is reserved for the more expensive models.

If accurate, both the standard iPhone 15 models and the iPhone 15 Pro models will use frosted glass for the back of the device.

Case Fit

A set of 3D printed iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models offers some insight into how prior-generation iPhone 14 cases will fit, and it appears that older cases will not be able to be used with the new iPhones.

Small changes in the dimensions to the iPhone 15 lineup will prevent the cases from fitting for the most part, though the iPhone 15 Plus is able to fit inside an iPhone 14 Plus. The larger rear camera housing of the Pro models prevents iPhone 14 Pro cases from working properly, as does the more curved design and changes to the buttons.

Here’s everything we expect from Apple’s September event:

iPhone 15, Plus, Pro, and Max (or maybe Ultra)

It looks like we’ll be getting four new iPhones this year, a similar lineup to 2022, with a standard iPhone 15 and a larger Plus model and a more advanced iPhone 15 Pro and larger Max. There are rumors that the Max could become the Ultra. The rumors suggest the Pro models are the ones getting the majority of the new features, as usual, although it may be the case that the Max-sized model gets new features the Pro misses out on.
