The focus of this guide is mainly on the standard iPhone 15. However, in September, we anticipate Apple’s unveiling of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max as well. Initially, we thought the latter might be named the iPhone 15 Ultra, but the latest information suggests that we’ll have to wait until next year for Apple’s first Ultra-grade iPhone.

In the table below, you’ll find all the rumored specs for the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. For more details about the latter two phones, check out our dedicated hubs on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Additionally, there might be an iPhone 15 Plus announced this year, though it is expected to offer similar specs to its standard counterpart (excluding battery capacity).

iPhone 15 Release Date:

Expected to launch in early September, with shipping starting around a week later. Release date rumors usually surface about a month before the launch event. For the iPhone 14, the event took place on September 7, and the phones went on sale between September 16 and October 7. Apple typically chooses the first or second week of September for its launches, often on a Tuesday or occasionally on a Wednesday. In 2023, September 5 or 12 (both Tuesdays) are likely launch days, with September 6 and 13 as possible options.

Expect higher prices worldwide compared to iPhone 14.
While the exact price for the iPhone 15 remains unknown, we can estimate based on rumors and iPhone 14 launch prices:

  • 128GB: $799 / £849 / AU$1,339
  • 256GB: $899 / £959 / AU$1,579
  • 512GB: $1,099 / £1,179 / AU$1,899

Initially, we thought the iPhone 15 would match the iPhone 14’s price, starting at $799 / £849 / AU$1,339. However, analysts predict a higher cost due to increased production expenses for Apple. If this holds true, it will be the first series-wide price increase in the US since 2017, while international markets saw similar increases in last year’s iPhone 14 line.

There might be no 128GB storage option for the iPhone 15 this year, following the lead of Samsung and Oppo’s 2023 flagships. This decision might be exclusive to the next Pro models by Apple.

iPhone 15 colors:

Based on rumors and past iPhone releases, Apple is likely to offer five colors for the iPhone 15 at launch. The potential options include:

  • Cyan/Green
  • Light Blue
  • Pink
  • Midnight
  • Starlight
  • Product (RED)

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will probably have a distinct set of colors compared to the iPhone 15, but they are likely to share the same color options with each other. We can expect four different color choices for these models:

  • Dark Red
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Graphite, Space Gray, or Space Black

iPhone 15 design:

The iPhone 15 might feature curved edges similar to the iPhone 11. Rumors also suggest a textured matte glass rear panel and a switch to USB-C charging ports instead of Lightning ports. Additionally, the standard iPhone 15 could include a new camera bump design.

There may be some variations in the size of the camera bumps compared to the iPhone 14, but other design changes, such as titanium sides and thinner bezels, seem reserved for the iPhone 15 Pro models.

Apple is considering the adoption of eSIMs for the iPhone 15 in some countries outside the US, which could provide SIM cardless options in several European countries.

The iPhone 15 is expected to come with a 48MP main sensor, an upgrade from the 12MP main sensor on the iPhone 14. This enhancement could provide a compelling reason for iPhone 14 users to upgrade.

However, the gap between the iPhone 15 and its Pro models might remain significant, as the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are rumored to have periscope cameras and the largest iPhone camera sensors ever. The Pro Max/Ultra model could even feature a telephoto camera with a variable zoom lens.

On the front camera, the iPhone 15 is likely to maintain the 12MP selfie camera found on the iPhone 14.

The iPhone 15 is likely to have the A16 Bionic chipset from the iPhone 14 Pro, providing improved performance. However, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max could get the newer A17 Bionic exclusively.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X70 5G modem might be used for the iPhone 15, offering better performance than the iPhone 14’s Snapdragon X65.

The Pro models might have 8GB of RAM and support Wi-Fi 6E.

The iPhone 15 may include USB-C ports, with the Pro models having faster data transfer speeds compared to the standard model.

Expect larger batteries across the iPhone 15 lineup, potentially providing better battery life.

The iPhone 15 could feature reverse wireless charging, allowing it to charge other Apple gadgets.

The UWB chip in the iPhone 15 might be upgraded to support Apple’s Vision Pro headset.

Apple’s AI developments could be showcased in the iPhone 15’s Health app, providing tailored lifestyle recommendations based on user data.

The iPhone 15 is expected to retain a 6.1-inch Super XDR OLED display and inherit the Dynamic Island feature from the iPhone 14 Pro models, giving it a more premium look.

The iPhone 15’s Dynamic Islands will have a different sensor arrangement, integrating the proximity sensor inside the Dynamic Island itself, unlike the iPhone 14 Pro models which it is positioned below. This change is not expected to affect the appearance or functionality significantly, but it makes the iPhone 15’s Dynamic Island more advanced.

The display of the iPhone 15 is likely to remain the same as the iPhone 14, with a static 60Hz refresh rate, while the iPhone 14 Pro models have ProMotion technology with an adaptive 1-120Hz refresh rate.
