Every year the upcoming iPhones become the center of attention before their release. Media outlets, leakers, tech enthusiasts, and even consumers start speculating what the new iPhone holds. 

This year, as one of the newest phones in 2023, the target of everyone’s attention is the iPhone 15 series. Apple is bringing massive changes to the iPhone 15 lineup, so there is a lot of hype surrounding the upcoming iPhone. 

Let’s take a look at everything we know so far based on the iPhone 15 rumors and see what the hype is all about.

When is the iPhone 15 coming out? 

Everyone is dying to know the iPhone 15 release date. Multiple leaks have speculated the most likely release date for the iPhone 15. Some Apple 15 leaks suggest that Apple could potentially choose a different iPhone 15 Pro Max release date compared to the non-pro model. 

Apple is yet to confirm the official release date for the iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, looking at Apple’s track record, every new iPhone has been released at the Apple September event, which takes place every year. So, there is a high chance that the iPhone 15 lineup will debut this September 2023. 

What is the iPhone 15 going to look like?

The iPhone 15 lineup will look similar to the previous iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro. Apple only makes drastic design changes every three or four generations. The iPhone 14 Pro got credited with a major design overhaul with the introduction of the notchless Dynamic Island. So, the iPhone 15 will not deviate from the design principles of the iPhone 14. 

Dynamic Island will also trickle down to the regular iPhone 15 models and will not be exclusive just to the iPhone Pro. There are some reports that the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 models could get a titanium frame replacing the aluminum frame. 

Titanium is a more rigid and lightweight material compared to aluminum. The upcoming iPhone 15 could also feature rounded corners to make the device more comfortable in the hand because many users report the current iPhone design being too sharp and chunky.

The weight of the iPhone Pro models is a concern for many users. The new Apple watch Ultra is also based on a titanium frame, so Apple already has the resources to implement such a change. Using a titanium frame will also differentiate the iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 models from the regular iPhone 15. 

iPhone 15 Colors

The base iPhone models get vibrant and punchy colors compared to the Pro models more sophisticated and muted colors. The colors of the iPhone 15 are not yet confirmed, however, the product red, midnight, blue, and starlight color options could potentially be carried forward to the iPhone 15. 

Apple introduces a new color with every new generation. So, we could potentially see a new colorway added to the iPhone 15. However, it is not yet confirmed which new color Apple will choose  for the iPhone 15.  

iPhone 15 Pro Max Colors? 

With every new iPhone Pro model, there is a new colorway. The iPhone 14 Pro introduced the deep purple color, while the iPhone 13 Pro series came in the dazzling Sierra Blue option. 

The iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 and the iPhone 15 Pro 2023 models will also introduce a new unique color along with the space black, silver, and gold color options. However, no iPhone 15 Pro MAX color leaks have been unearthed. Apple also has not made any official statement about it.

What has Changed in the iPhone 15?

Many changes are coming with the iPhone 15. Some are more subtle and quality of life improvements. However, there are also some groundbreaking innovations. The main changes coming with the iPhone 15 that have been leaked include 

  • Removing the lighting port for a USB-C port
  • A new periscope camera
  • New state-of-the-art Sony camera sensors for improved picture quality
  • A new A17 3nm chip
  • Haptic Volume and Power button
  • Titanium frame 

The new A17 Bionic chip based on TSMC 3nm node, is expected to be the fastest mobile chip ahead of the latest offering from Snapdragon. The A17 Bionic will only be available with the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 models. The regular iPhone 15 will use the previous generation A16 Bionic used in the iPhone 14 Pro Max. 

The new periscope camera is likely to only debut on the iPhone 15 Pro models. There is little to differentiate between the current iPhone Pro and the regular model. However, with the iPhone 15 lineup, Apple is looking to draw clear lines between the Pro and the non-pro model. 

Is iPhone 15 USB-C?

All variants, including the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and iPhone 15 Ultra, are expected to release with a USB-C port. EU regulators passed a law enforcing the use of a one-size-fits-all charging port. The USB-C port is the only viable universal solution that can charge all devices including the iPhones 15, Macs, Airpods and other gadgets.

The new MacBooks use the USB-C port, so we could see iPhone 15 USB-C pretty soon. The law passed by EU regulators is the last nail in the coffin for the lighting port.

The iPhone 15 USB-C port will support higher data transfer speeds, potentially benefiting Apple greatly in the long run. The USB-C port on the iPhone 15 will open the gates for faster-wired charging, making the charging speed of the iPhone comparable to its Android counterparts.

Will there be an iPhone 15 Mini?

After the abysmal sales figures of the iPhone 14 Plus, there was an outcry about the iPhone Mini model returning to the next year’s lineup. According to the latest leaks and news, Apple has no plans to resurrect the iPhone 15 Mini soon. 

The iPhone 15 Mini occupies a soft spot in the heart of many people who don’t like using a large phone. However, the number of such people has shrunk considerably over the years. Therefore, Apple does not see a market for the iPhone 15 Mini. 

Will there be an iPhone 15 Ultra? 

Apple wants to rename the iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 to iPhone 15 Ultra. In the current lineup of iPhone, there are blurry lines between the Pro and the Pro Max models. The large display size is the only aspect separating the iPhone 14 Pro from the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple wants to clearly distinguish between the Pro and the Pro Max model. 

There are reports stating that Apple is pushing for a different name for the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Many leaks suggest that the iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 could be called the iPhone 15 Ultra. Apple has recently released the Apple Watch Ultra, so the Ultra name could trickle to the iPhone lineup as well. 

Will there be an iPhone 15 flip? 

Samsung revitalized the flip phone concept with the Samsung Galaxy Flip. The Galaxy Flip is on its fifth generation now and its sales have been growing over the generations. In these times where there are multiple electronic gadgets around us, people want more with less and the flip phone perfectly embodies that philosophy. 

It folds in half to become a small and compact smartphone that you can easily fit in your pocket or a purse. Users have been expecting a flip iPhone from Apple. According to the latest rumors floating in the market, the iPhone 15 flip could become a reliaty as Apple is active working or a flip phone. 

Whether Apple releases the iPhone 15 flip is not confirmed yet, however, I wouldn’t get my hopes too high up. Apple does not rush a product release and they are known for taking their sweet time to polishing the product before it hits the shelves. 

Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the iPhone 15 generation will have a flip model. Also, like Samsung, Apple’s flip phone may come with a different name and may not be released under the regular iPhone series.

Will the iPhone 15 be better? 

According to all the leaks and rumors, the iPhone 15 is shaping up to be a better phone compared to the previous generation. The iPhone 15 lineup will introduce a host of new features such as the periscope camera, new Sony camera sensors, A17 Bionic chip and more. 

However, not all of these features will be available on the regular iPhone 15. Going forward Apple there will be a clear distinction between the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and the iPhone 15 Ultra. Apple does not want the sales of the Pro model getting jeopardized by the Pro Max. 

What will the price of the iPhone 15 be? 

In the upcoming iPhone 15 lineup there will be a price shift. The regular iPhone 15 is likely to retain the price of the previous generation iPhone 14. The iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Ultra will receive a price hike. Here’s the expected pricing for the iPhone 15 lineup. 

  • iPhone 15: starts at $799
  • Phone 15 Pro: starts at $1099 
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max 2023 / iPhone 15 Ultra: starts at $1199

If Apple moves forward with this pricing, both the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Ultra will cost $100 more than the previous generation models. 

Should I wait for the iPhone 15 

As per all the rumors and leaks, the iPhone 15 is shaping up to be a very promising upgrade and a worthy sucessor to the iPhone 15. It comes with many new features like the new periscope camera, A17 Bionic chip, and a host of other upgrades that will make the iPhone 15 user experience a lot nicer. 

However, most of these features will be reserved for the iPhone 15 Pro MAX 2023 model. If you are in the market for the base iPhone 14, the iPhone 15 will not be that much different. If your phone is broken and you cannot wait, go for the iPhone 14. However, if you are not in a hurry to buy a new iPhone then wait for the iPhone 15. The iPhone 15 series is expected to release in September, 2023.


Will iPhone 15 have Lightning?

All models of the iPhone 15 will not have a lighting port. USB-C will be used instead of the lighting port on the iPhone 15 to comply with the new European laws. 

Will iPhone 15 have a charging port?

The iPhone 15 will have a charging port. The rumors of Apple removing the charging port from on the iPhone 15 are not true. The charging port is likely to stay for the iPhone 15 and future iPhone models until wireless charging technology becomes reliable and effective to the same extent as wired charging.

Is iPhone 15 waterproof?

The iPhone 15 complies with the IP68 water and dust resistance certification. This means that the iPhone 15 can be submerged to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes without any water damage. 

Will iPhone 15 be wireless?

The iPhone 15 will have wireless charging and other wireless features. Apple will also build on the satellite connectivity feature and add new ways of wireless communication via satellite in the iPhone 15. 

Buy iPhone 14 or wait for iPhone 15?

It is worth waiting for the iPhone 15 if you are not in a hurry to buy a new iPhone. However, if your iPhone is broken and you are in a hurry to buy a new phone, then buying an iPhone 14 is a better choice. The iPhone 14 is a very capable phone with a great camera. So, even after the release of the iPhone 15, the iPhone 14 will not get outdated.
