Consistently, Apple presents another iPhone line, and its presentation is the main occasion in the Apple schedule. However much Macintosh deals are developing and Apple’s drive into administrations is expanding, iPhone deals are at the core of the organization’s portfolio and act as the driver for adornments like Apple Watch and AirPods.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Ace might have quite recently arrived on store racks, however tales are as of now warming up about what’s in store with the following year’s iPhone 15 line. This is the very thing we’ve heard up to this point, and what we anticipate in view of Apple’s new history.
iPhone 15 release date
Apple usually introduces the new iPhones on a Tuesday or Wednesday around the second week of September.
Therefore, we suspect the iPhone 15 will be unveiled on September 12 or 13, 2023. At least some of the models will likely go on sale for preorder that Friday (September 15) and be available in stores the following Friday (September 22).
Here’s when the last few generations arrived in stores:
- iPhone 14: September 16, 2022
- iPhone 13: September 24, 2021
- iPhone 12: October 23, 2020
- iPhone 11: September 20, 2019
- iPhone XS: September 21, 2018
iPhone 15 Ultra
Since Apple has presented the Apple Watch Ultra, there are reports that the organization will stretch out the marking to the iPhone line with the iPhone 15 Ultra.
That is truly pretty much everything to those bits of hearsay up until this point. The supposition that will be that the iPhone 15 Ultra would be the marking utilized for the „Star Max“ variation, and there would be some kind of new highlights to separate it. Apple did this once before with the iPhone 12 Master Max, which had a somewhat preferable camera over the iPhone 12 Star.
Yet again so a great many people expect that the camera will be the component that separates the new Ultra telephone, conceivable with a superior periscope fax camera (see underneath). The talk factory has loads of different thoughts for how Apple could make the Ultra rendition stick out, like quicker charging or more capacity, yet the greater part of them aren’t validated by any proof. List of things to get highlights, maybe.
This speculative iPhone 15 Ultra could somehow be considered an iPhone 15 Expert Max-it is expected to utilize a similar processor, show, and plan as the iPhone 15 Star (however LeaksApplePro reports that it could have a titanium body like the Apple Watch Ultra).
iPhone 15 plan
There are no ongoing bits of gossip to recommend that the iPhone 15 setup will appear to be exceptionally unique from the iPhone 14 line. Anticipate similar shape and level edges, as well as larger than average cameras on the Genius models. We hope to see similar four sizes, as well: 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch standard iPhone 15, alongside 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Genius.
As per gossip by Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple could change to strong state buttons for the iPhone 15 Genius and Ultra models, similar as the Home button on the iPhone SE. Kuo says Apple will add a couple of Taptic motors on one or the other side of the telephone to emulate the vibe of an interactive button.
The EU is ordering that most versatile hardware, including telephones, need to normalize around USB-C for charging ports (if any-devices that main charge remotely like the Apple Watch don’t have to add a USB-C port). Mac should progress a few items over the long run, and on second thought of making unique USB-C variants for Europe, will probably change everything overall as we saw as of late with the tenth gen iPad and Siri remote. It’s normal that all iPhone 15 models will accompany a USB-C port.
Current iPhones use USB-C power connectors, so that won’t change, simply the USB-C to Lightning link and the port on the iPhone itself. The potential gain? Possibly quicker charging and quicker information move speeds for those that plug their iPhones into their Macintoshes or laptops.
One huge change to the presentation on the non-Genius iPhones is that the Powerful Island — that pill-formed camera pattern that fills in as a significant connection point component on iPhone 14 Supportive of will come to all iPhone 15 models. That implies the non-Genius iPhones will have a similar look and point of interaction.
However, note that this doesn’t imply that the iPhone 15 will get a consistently in plain view or Advancement. Those highlights are as of now supposed to stay restrictive to the Master models.
iPhone 15 specs and features
Apple tests a lot of new technologies from a lot of suppliers, and over time little leaks can sometimes give us a clue as to what’s coming in the next iPhone. These leaks are sometimes wrong, often misunderstood, and generally miss software innovations that accompany the new hardware (such as Dynamic Island, where we only heard about the “pill and hole” cutout and not how Apple intended to make use of it).
Here’s what we currently expect to find inside the iPhone 15 line.
Periscope camera lens
Rumors have said that Apple has been working on a “periscope lens” to offer a much longer-range optical zoom. It’s the same technology that allows the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to achieve such a long zoom range. There hasn’t been a lot of movement on this rumor recently, but it was last suggested that this might be an exclusive feature of the iPhone 15 Pro Max. It’s unclear whether this would necessitate a different camera array layout or size, though the S22 Ultra’s cameras are much larger than the other models.
Elsewhere, there are sure to be camera upgrades in the iPhone 15 as there are every year. Between a front camera and three rear cameras, you can bet at least one of them will get an improved sensor or lens. The only specific rumor around the cameras right now is that the iPhone 15 Pro Max may have a periscope telephoto camera, giving an optical zoom likely somewhere in the 5x to 10x range.
The next major processor manufacturing technology bump out of TSMC (the company that makes most of Apple’s chips) wasn’t ready yet for the A16. We think the A17 is likely to be one of the first mass-produced chips to use the chip manufacturer’s 3nm process, which should allow more transistors in the same area, allowing Apple to cram in more features and better performance.
With the iPhone 14 line, Apple reserved its new A16 for the Pro models and used the A15 again on the non-Pro models. We think that’s likely to continue in 2023, with the standard iPhone 15 using the A16 processor and the iPhone 15 Pro using the new A17.
After the iPhone 14 Pro kept the same 6GB of memory as the iPhone 13 Pro, Trendforce reports that the iPhone 15 Pro/Ultra models will get 8GB of RAM. The non-Pro models are expected to have the same 6GB of RAM as this year.
Apple’s 5G modem
Apple has been working on its own cellular modem for years now, having acquired Intel’s modem unit in 2019 for $1B. While it was originally rumored that Apple could have a competitive 5G capable cellular modem ready in time to be part of the iPhone 15, recent rumors suggest that won’t be the case. Back in May, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the development of the modem had hit a “roadblock,” and Mark Gurman reported in November that Qualcomm is expected to provide “the majority of new modems” for the iPhone 15. We should expect another Qualcomm Snapdragon modem instead, most likely the Snapdragon X70.
iPhone 15 price
We expect the iPhone 15 line to mostly carry on the same prices as the iPhone 14 line. With the iPhone 14 models, Apple kept the price the same in the U.S., but thanks to exchange rates and inflation, had to raise prices in the U.K. and many other countries.
If Apple does indeed re-brand the iPhone 15 Pro Max as the iPhone 15 Ultra and give it some exclusive new features, we think that will prove enough of an excuse to raise prices on that model a little (perhaps $100/£100).
For reference, here’s the pricing on the iPhone 14 line:
- iPhone 14: $799/£849
- iPhone 14 Plus: $899/£949
- iPhone 14 Pro: $999/£1099
- iPhone 14 Pro Max: $1099/£1199
